Infrared Annealing Ovens

Industrial infrared annealing ovens are an essential application process in the manufacturing of individual component parts. Used specifically as a heat treatment to remove internal stresses, materials including glass, polymers, and metals can be hardened and strengthened to withstand shock and pressure.

Taking your processes and configuration needs into account, our specialist engineers can custom-design and build a conveyor or chamber-style oven for you. Matching your requirements in full, infrared technology and programmable controllers will give you the precision control you need.

Manufacturing a wide range of industrial infrared annealing and stress relief ovens, Ceramicx offers heat solutions for any application. With technical knowledge and experience, we work with your process and configuration requirements to design and purpose-build industrial conveyor or chamber-style infrared annealing ovens for a range of industries.

Using industry standard heating elements to remove internal stresses on your chosen materials, a Ceramicx-built annealing oven gives you the speed, efficiency, and precision temperature control you need.

With a stainless steel framework that includes multiple doors and removable panels for easy access to infrared heat chambers, your annealing oven can be fully custom-designed to meet your needs. Manufactured by our engineering team, infrared annealing ovens can be standalone or incorporated into existing machinery, giving you the production flexibility you need with bespoke features and remote monitoring.

And using test optimised, industry-standard infrared ceramic or quartz heating elements, fast and energy-efficient heat processing times are guaranteed. And a complete custom control or plug and play system allows the oven to strengthen individual component parts that withstand shock and pressure with precision temperature accuracy.

Any bespoke-designed annealing oven will give you the successful combination of low maintenance and running costs with increased productivity and processing times for a complete infrared heating and control solution, that includes:

Industrial Infrared Annealing Ovens

  • Annealing and Stress Relief Oven

    The conveyor length was specified by the customer but Ceramicx chose the belt material and specification that was heat resistant. Perforated aluminium was used for the back cover to allow ventilation in the wiring area.

  • Ceramicx Modular Infrared Conveyor Oven

    Each IR oven module is attached to the next module by means of securing fittings. Side conveyors run alongside the oven modules to feed product to the entry point of conveyor oven. Each oven module has an integrated control system to control heating, air flow, and conveying operations.
