EcoInCure – Innovative car body curing from the inside
EcoInCure stands for a new generation of car body curing: The heating and cooling of the car body take place primarily from the inside.
Best surface quality
EcoInCure’s air flow control produces the best possible top coat appearance. The car body is heated up from the inside, resulting in even heating and cooling conditions. Consequently, flow velocities on the outer body surface are minimal, greatly improving the appearance and distribution of the top coat and thus the surface quality. Leading paint suppliers have proven with their own research that paint curing with EcoInCure produces less waves and significantly improves quality.
Best process times
The principle of heating from the inside reaches massive car body components of the framework, e.g. rocker panels, more directly than conventional systems. This means optimum heat transfer from the hot air flow to difficult-to-access parts/areas. What’s more, it reduces the required process time for heating up the body by up to 30%.
Best for EVs
Electric vehicles need – among other things – well-reinforced rocker panels to protect the batteries in the event of a side impact. EcoInCure dries these rocker panels with their increased material thickness far better than conventional ovens, and prevents overheating in thinner parts of the body shell.
The same goes for future multi-substrate car body generations with new material combinations and new joining methods. Here, specifically, the new EcoInCure drying method reduces thermal component stresses to ensure increased process reliability.
