Lumimax® High Power UV lighting

The great challenge in fluorescence applications in industrial image processing is that the emitted light (fluorescence) has less energy than the radiation required for stimulation. Fluorescence can be clearly identified by the human eye, while the UV radiation of the lighting is hardly perceived. A camera is much more sensitive in the ultraviolet spectrum. The UV light outshines the fluorescence of the stimulated material in the camera image. The contrast is too low for reliable assessment. 
A UV application can be optimised and reliably implemented by precisely coordinating lighting and lens filters. These allow the exact separation of stimulation and emission wavelengths. Interfering UV reflections and extraneous light influences are suppressed. As a result, fluorescent features appear brightly illuminated in the test image. 

Our support team will gladly assist and advise you on the choice of a suitable UV lighting and the matching accessories.

Fluorescence applications

UV lights are used to make invisible features on products visible. The UV radiation causes certain materials to glow. This glowing is clearly visible to the human eye and cameras. Product labels that consumers find annoying can be applied with transparent, fluorescent ink. However, under UV radiation, the labelling can be made visible for the purposes of inspection. Fluorescent, low-contrast adhesives, paints and seals can be shown in high contrast with ultraviolet radiation. Presence and completeness monitoring is thus made easier for the camera. The finest cracks, such as in cast parts, can be made visible with the aid of fluorescence.


The areas of application for UV lighting are very diverse. A few examples:

  • Inspection of safety features and markings as protection against plagiarism and counterfeiting
  • Inspection of adhesives, paints, lubricants and sealant
  • Product labelling
  • Track & trace
  • Residue and residual dirt analyses
  • Inspections of cracks, cavities and defects
  • Forensic analyses
