KVB30D UV exposure box

Make your own Printed Circuit Board

Kinsten KVB30D UV lightbox with integrated vacuum table

Kinsten KVB30D UV lightbox with integrated vacuum table

The Kinsten UV Exposure Box has a maximum exposure area 230×380mm and can be used for single sided, or double sided PCB's.

It includes digital timer & vacuum table.

Three (3) FL-15 tubes top and bottom, ensure high intensity ultra-violet radiation for rapid exposure time. For applications that require more intense UV, Kinsten now offer the KVB30DQ with four (4) lamps per side for 220V regions and KVB30DT with five (5) lamps per side for 110V regions. Due to the size of the ballasts, 240V regions do not yet have a high intensity model.

The dominant UV wavelength is 350~400nm and the KVB-30D, while designed for use with Kinsten presensitised PCB, is often suitable for other applications that require transfering an image to a UV sensitive surface. They have been used in other applications including label making and rubber stamp production, although please check suitability first.

Please ensure you order the correct model for your mains voltage. Broadly, 110V is for North America and some areas of Asia, 220V is for Europe and other areas of Asia, 240V is for Australia & New Zealand. However, your area may have a different mains voltage, so please check before ordering.

Instructions to use KVB30D

Kinsten KVB30D UV lightbox diagram

The power cable is located in the top lid of the exposure box, to release pull small brass knob.(Fig 1.1).

Turn off all switches on the front panel (Fig 1.2) & plug power cable into rear of the KVB30D. Ensure the voltage supply is correct and plug into electricity socket.

Adjust exposure time using Second Preset buttons. Typical exposure time is 60-90 seconds for photoplot and 70-120 seconds for artwork base when used with Kinsten PCB.


Kinsten KVB30D front panel

Kinsten KVB30D unlatching the vacuum table

Unlock the vacuum clamp by pushing the metal latches outward with your thumbs, and lift clamp.


Kinsten alignment of double-sided artwork

Remove protective film from presensitised PCB and align the artwork with the PCB. Alignment of double sided PCBs is made easier by using PCB offcuts to make a pouch with the artworks pre-aligned as shown in the image.

Artwork should be printed as a positive (black tracks) reversed image. Lay the printed side against the PCB, so the result will be correct.


Kinsten KVB30D spacing from vacuum airpipe

Place the assembled Kinsten PCB and artwork inside the vacuum clamp, leaving a minimum 1cm distance from the air pipe.

Close and latch the vacuum clamp. Start the vacuum pump and wait for approximately 30 seconds until the air under vacuum clamp has been fully removed.

Close box and turn on UV light source, upper/lower or both as required. Display panel counts down seconds and at the end of exposure time, a buzzer will give a 2-3 seconds signal.

Turn off vacuum pump, open the box and wait a few seconds, then unlock the vacuum clamp and open it slowly. Remove and process the PCB.


Caution

Avoid UV exposure at a short distance for more than 5 seconds. Wearing UV protective glasses is recommended.

Adjusting the Second Preset during exposure may interrupt the timer.

Unplug the power cable before replacing the fuse.
3 Amp for 100-120V
2 Amp for 220-240V.

Do not use solvents on transparent plastic surface, use soft cloth with water/detergent or 50% water/alcohol.

Normal artificial room light will not harm Kinsten presensitised surface if exposed less than 5 minutes.

Breaks and flaws in artwork may be touched up with a black text pen.

Freight Considerations 2020

There have been significant changes to freight transport.

Notably, most services reject chemicals (DP50 developer & EB750 etchant) as general cargo or for post. They have to be sent as Dangerous Goods. We don't offer this service.

While the situation is improving, some orders experience longer than quoted delivery times. This is outside of our control.

Taiwan EMS & International Parcel Post service have limited destinations at this time, and the accepted countries vary according to post office discretion at the time of despatch.

DPEX Courier

EMS Courier

Where available, EMS delivery is generally 3 to 7 days from despatch, but some countries will take longer due to incoming customs delays. Tracking is available for all EMS deliveries.

International Parcel Post

Parcel post can be used when delivery time is not critical, at a lower cost.

Air Post delivery time can vary from 7 days to 45 days from despatch, but is typically delivered within 30 days.

SAL (Surface Air-lifted) Post delivery time is typically 20-45 days from despatch, but is only available to limited destinations.

Surface Post is usually the lowest cost, but not available to all destinations. Typical delivery times are 45 to 120 days from despatch.

Other Courier Services (DHL, Fedex, UPS etc.)

If you require this service, you must specify your own account accepting all freight charges ex shipping depot.
