What to Look for in Your Combination Convection/Infrared Oven: Design and Energy Considerations, 5/13
CD of live broadcast 5/21/2013
In this webinar, we will discuss how infrared (IR) emitters can be installed into a convection oven. We’ll discuss the results that will be achieved in production flexibility and cost savings to operate a combination convection/IR cure oven. This includes the net energy cost to run a combination oven versus a convection-only oven, and the energy savings of running a combination oven compared with a convection-only oven. This will lead into a discussion of how combining convection and IR technology can be made into a just-in-time (JIT) oven operation to handle a variety of parts with different material thicknesses, which allows you to get away from batching parts of like material thickness to properly cure parts.
The webinar will end with a look at several case studies of companies successfully using combination ovens in their finishing operations. You’ll find out what impact these ovens had on the companies' production and how much energy they saved.
