    With the Holidays right around the corner it’s easy to get lost in the spirit of giving.

    From the seemingly endless list of people you are shopping for we challenge you to add a few more to your list. This year we ask that you pick a few of your favorite causes and give them a small donation this Holiday season. We have chosen to support our community by donating to some of our favorite charities. This year we have selected to donate to the Humane Society of Marion County, St. Jude Children’s Hospital, and the American Red Cross.

    Giving Spirit!

    Whatever you are passionate about let them know with a loving donation this year.

    Thank you to all of our customers for making this possible.

    Happy Holidays from our family to yours.
    -Your team at Southern Lamps, Inc.

  4. All You Need to Know About IR Lamps

    Leave a Comment

    How does infrared work?
    Infrared (IR) energy is a form of radiation, which falls between visible light and microwaves in the electromagnetic spectrum. These infrared lamps use low amounts of energy and work by emitting infrared radiations which can be used for many processes. Infrared heaters produce heat that is a product of invisible light from IR lamps.

    What are infrared lamps used for?
    Southern Lamps, Inc. supplies infrared lamps for many different applications and industrial processes including the following:

    • Curing and bonding
    • Plastic welding
    • Annealing
    • PET manufacturing
    • Print drying
    • Domestic/commercial heating

    In these applications, infrared heaters may replace convection ovens and contact heating, UV curing or electrical or gas heating systems. In the case of print drying, infrared may be more suitable than UV curing for some inks and substrates.

    Southern Lamps, Inc. has a dedicated sales and technical team to assist you, no matter what your IR lamp requirements may be. Contact us today!

  7. UV Industry of the Month: Aerospace and Defense

    UV Industry of the Month: Aerospace and Defense

    UV curable coatings are used in the aerospace and defense industries. These coatings are used in order to meet stringent performance standards.  These standards include adhesion, durability, protection, appearance, and exposure to aggressive fluids.  UV curable coatings are also ideal since the finished product is exposed to temperatures ranging from -65 degrees F to 200 degrees F, high speeds of travel, and corrosion.

    UV curable coatings are replacing conventional products that were previously used due to environmental regulations that govern high volatile organic compound (VOC) coatings.  As a result, UV curable products cure quickly which reduces the time and cost of recoating (time between coats, time/cost of aircraft out of service, etc.).  Also, since the items being coated are so large (the environment where they are being coated may vary from laboratory to airplane hangar) the cure when using UV coatings is independent of temperature and humidity.
