Infrared Main Heat Ovens

Being the central component to any heat process, Ceramicx infrared main heat ovens provide the right heat needed for forming, curing, annealing, or laminating. In fact, any process where high temperature, energy-efficient heat is needed to perform certain processes.

With every custom oven, Ceramicx engineers can evaluate your production specifications to design, configure, and deliver an infrared main heat oven solution that meets your exact requirements.

Main heat processes are used extensively throughout major industry and manufacturing sectors. And with many processes being specific to sub-components of components, it often requires an individual and custom heating solution.

Ceramicx infrared main heat ovens are designed to exacting specifications. Purpose-built to meet the needs of the product and the process, each includes bespoke temperature or power requirements, together with considerations for any physical size and shape constraints.

Manufactured by Ceramicx engineers, every infrared main heat oven is designed and built around the customer’s own process requirements with built-in custom features. Beyond a structural stainless steel framework, Ceramicx’ experience in heatwork can integrate functional and precise specifications and controls to full standards compliance.

Custom heater arrays can be produced for full concentration of heat direction using Ceramicx, CE approved, infrared elements for tight heating tolerances in °C and optimised energy-efficiency. And enhanced custom control capabilities can be pre-programmed to allow precision timing and temperature control for your applications.

Every oven – from standalone systems to full integration with existing machinery – is bespoke to your own requirements, giving you a complete, energy-efficient and cost-effective heating solution. Oven features can also include:
