Infrared Heating Technologies designed and built three Infrared Cure Oven And Cooling Tunnel Systems for a large automotive supply manufacturer. The application is heat curing and cooling brake pads (curing of exothermic friction material after pressing). The largest of the three systems has a maximum production throughput in excess of 1,000 brake pads per hour. Left:Infrared conveyor and cooling tunnel system features two conveyor belts. The top conveyor belt carries brake pad parts through the multiple infrared heat zones thus curing the friction material. The parts are then transferred to the bottom tier conveyor where they are carried through the cooling tunnel. The fast, controllable infrared heating and the double tier design dramatically reduced the overall space requirement of the process, while increasing process and flow control.
Infrared Heating Technologies designed and built a Conveyor Oven And Water Quench System for a large medical supply manufacturer. The application is thermal setting of a memory alloy. Left: Conveyor oven features multiple control zones, infrared radiant heaters, high temperature re-circulation axial fans, stainless steel water quench, and full PLC process controls.
Infrared Heating Technologies designed, built, and installed a Electric Drop-Bottom Batch Furnace And Control System to The Morris Wood Tool Company, Inc., a manufacturer of carbide drill bit tooling. The 28.8KW electric infrared furnace system features a drop-bottom rail system for ease of loading and fuzzy logic adaptive tuning programmable process and temperature control. The system is capable of selectively drawing drill bit shanks without reducing the hardness of the cutting end of the tooling in extremely short heat cycles (less than 5 minutes from a cold start). The system has a maximum temperature capability of 2000oF, and can be used for drawing, hardening, brazing, and other applications.
Infrared Heating Technologies shipped several Infrared Die Pre-Heaters to Doktas, a large aluminum high pressure die casting company in Turkey.Infrared Die Pre-HeaterTM between die halves inside high pressure aluminum die cast machine. The Infrared Die Pre-HeaterTM heats much faster, more efficiently, and with better uniformity than a standard electric or gas infrared die heater.
Infrared Heating Technologies delivered 6 single and 2 double heat zone Infrared Boot Heaters TM to Delphi Automotive Steering Systems in Athens, Alabama. The Infrared Boot Heater TM is an electric infrared heater and control system designed to heat thermoplastic and polymer boots for applications requiring placement of the boots on steering assemblies, CV joints, etc. The Infrared Boot Heater TM heats and expands the boot in a matter of 4-5 seconds. This slight expansion virtually eliminates the force required to install the boot. The subsequent cooling of the boot then makes a better seal than if the boot had been forced on without the application of heat. The response from the assembly line employees that have used this product has been extremely positive. In many cases, ergonomics problems have been virtually eliminated and production has increased. "The Infrared Boot Heater TM virtually eliminates the force required to install the boot. This reduction in force results in the elimination of the ergonomics problem associated with placing the boot on the steering assembly." Director of Research and Development, Delphi Automotive Steering Systems.
