IR Furnace For Composite Forming

Stack Furnace Composite Forming Infrared Heating Technologies recently designed, manufactured, tested, shipped, and installed, several medium wave electric infrared stack furnaces for pre-heating and forming carbon composites for the manufacture of aerospace parts. The process consists of pre-heating carbon composite material blanks prior to press forming. Each furnace chamber includes medium wave quartz tube heaters for heating from below and above the composite blank. A stainless steel structure internal to the furnace hearth is included for supporting the composite blank between the upper and lower heating elements during the heat cycle. The furnace stack system includes independent SCR control of top and bottom medium wave heaters, PID temperature controls, and factory mutual approved over temperature limit controls. Cooling fans are included for cooling the element ends and sides of the furnace structure. Optical temperature sensors are included for reading the temperature of the composite blank prior to removal from the furnace and placement into the forming press. All heater elements are accessible and easily changed from the outside of the furnace. Infrared Heating Technologies manufactures a wide variety of custom heater, oven, and furnace systems for specific processes.  Heating technologies include short wave electric infrared, medium wave electric infrared, long wave infrared, electric convection, gas fired convection, Silicon Carbide, Rod Over-Bend (ROB), and others. Infrared Heating Technologies manufacturing facility is  located at 2010 HWY 58, Oak Ridge, TN 37830, and all custom heater, oven, and control systems are manufactured in the USA.

Electric infrared convection oven

IHT recently manufactured an electric infrared convection combination oven and water spray quench system for heat setting Santoprene and MLT fuel lines for an automotive supply company. This electric infrared convection oven replaces the conventional steam rack approach to forming the fuel lines, thus reducing energy consumption and maintenance costs, while producing a part with a more exact dimensional setting. Infrared Heating Technologies’ (IHT) heater, infrared industrial ovens, and furnace systems are designed and manufactured to solve your heat processing needs while exceeding the highest industrial standards for machine building. IHT infrared industrial oven engineers work with you, the customer, from original concept to CAD electrical and mechanical drawings to fabrication and final testing / run-off. We are not satisfied until you are satisfied. Call us today for a free, no obligation consultation: (865)574-9784.
