A UK based company specialising in the coating and laminating of complex textiles, and cutting of carbon composite materials, had issues with processing their materials which due to their nature needed very accurate control.

Ceramicx designed and built the oven and control system with 4 zones evenly spread throughout the heating platen so that the infared energy is transferred evenly.

This oven allowed the customer to pre-heat their composite materials, allowing them to process their materials more easily. The materials absorbed the infrared energy best from the SFEH black element. It provided significantly better results than any of the other systems. Finally, the ease of which the width can be changed by selecting and deselecting zones was a key aid to the customer.
