Case Study

Case study: Inline Material Processing Oven

Ceramicx designed and built an infrared oven system for a UK based customer. This customer specialises in the coating and lamination of complex textiles as well as the cutting of carbon composite materials. The infrared oven was designed with 4 zones evenly spread throughout which allowed the heat to be evenly spread throughout the material giving an end result of a high quality material finish. Each zone was capable of being controlled to within 2°C of the specified setpoint which allowed for a fast heat up time and extremely accurate setpoint control.
