Heating and drying are important processes involved in the manufacturing of different products. Although many processes are similar across industries, there are differences in the wavelength of the heat that will be most effective applied to the product for the purpose of heating, drying, and finishing it.
Nowadays, the demand for specialty products made from exotic materials such as high temperature synthetic polymers and hard alloys is on rise. These products also have specific heating and drying requirements.
This is where Casso-Solar Technologies can help. We specialize in the design and manufacturing of custom infrared (IR) heating systems to meet our customers’ needs.
Our IR systems are proven to deliver the heat in required wavelengths and minimize the energy consumption in different industrial settings.
Benefits of Infrared Systems for Specialty Products
At Casso-Solar Technologies, we have been regularly improving our technologies and designs. Our wide variety of experiences have helped us serve diverse and complex client requirements with ease.
This is our specialty.
Many of our systems are one of their kind and were designed hand-in-hand with a customer to solve a specific problem.
We will design and build our equipment to custom fit your facility and your process.
Our systems are equipped with user-friendly operator interfaces, which allow users to see and set heat settings as required.
There are programmable timers that allow them to control the process and avoid overheating or under heating. Recipes can be created to allow for easy recall of appropriate settings.
The infrared heater system can be adjusted to the required wavelengths, power, voltage, and shape of the product.
This helps in improving the process speed as well as save energy that may be wasted due to heating more area than necessary.
Our infrared emitters produce infrared energy, which is transferred to the products to heat them.
The infrared energy wavelength can be easily adjusted to meet the different product and process requirements. We regularly deliver infrared systems for the following industrial applications:
In the plastic industry, surfaces of the plastic materials and films are heated prior to laminating and embossing.
The heating needs to be done homogenously, thus, we provide tubular and flat panel heaters that ensure uniform heating on the surfaces of plastic materials. We also provide the heaters for embossing and laminating textiles.
Whether the target parts are made of glass, textiles, paper, plastic, or metals we can determine the proper wavelength of energy to heat these to a target temperature.
The heat needs to be applied at the right time, and uniformly through the surface. This is where we can help by providing heating systems for custom products.
Many powder coatings, varnishes, and paints used in various industries require heat for curing and drying.
We provide heaters that can be easily adjusted to suit absorption wavelengths of the paint.
Films are heated prior to stretching. We provide various types of heaters that helps prepare the film for stretching, coating drying, and laminating.
From Design to Delivery
Casso-Solar Technologies individually designs every piece of equipment to meet the demands of our customers. Customers are encouraged to be involved in all stages of the development process.
Processes are tested in our laboratory by a trained engineer to determine both feasibility and the appropriate wavelength and heater to complete the task.
Using this information, our Sales Engineers will produce a conceptual design for review with the customer.
Once a concept is agreed upon, our Design Engineering team will take over and assemble a 3D model using the customer’s preferred component brands (if applicable). This is reviewed and modified as necessary before being approved for production.
Once complete, customers are invited to witness the Factory Acceptance Test prior to shipment to their facilities.
One of our technical support staff will be present to oversee the installation and startup of the equipment on-site.
Casso-Solar Technologies provides technical support and spare parts for the life of the equipment.
