By working closely with each customer IST aims to develop a customized solution to meet each customer's specific needs and to ensure that the system integrates seamlessly in their production line. LED VS UV LAMP Industrial curing technologies compared. Tried and tested technology or the technology of the future. Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) have obtained a considerable market share in ordinary lighting technology. Although the use of LED technology requires a greater investment, this is far out-weighed by its benefits – essentially energy savings and a long service life. There is also great interest in LED technology in the sphere of radiation curing. In the course of well over 40 years, the UV lamp with its broad spectrum has become established in a great many spheres of application. The narrow LED spectrum means that these applications cannot be transferred 1:1. LED UV technology works in the spectral range between 365 nm and 405 nm. UV lamps, on the other hand, cure in a wavelength range up to 450 nm.
