The incredible power of light

There are numerous challenging processes in industry that need to be optimised continuously:

· You need heat precisely to the spot?

· You need homogeneous curing?

· You need germ-free processes?

· You want to treat water or air?

· You need precise analyses?

· You need tailor-made RTP processes?

Light helps you - light meets technical challenges.

Heraeus develops solutions of UV and Infrared light which can be exactly adjusted to materials and products and integrated into your process. This makes industrial processes even more efficient and reliable.

Light can do more than is visible - how does this work?
