I just skimmed this post but why cant you use the light source that you do your polymer plates one? Thats what I would do.
A couple of reasons - firstly the UV vacuum box is in a shared access print studio (intaglio, screen prints, linocuts, etc), rather than my own photographic studio, and the studio use policy and rules on chemicals in the shared space means it's a no-go. Secondly, it's lit by a single source, which others have suggested elsewhere might result in an uneven exposure? (This might not be the case, but as per reason 1, I haven't been able to find out)!
