Conveyor Ovens

  • HIX Industrial Conveyor Ovens are built for high production rate heating processes. These Industrial Ovens are designed with maximum energy efficiency and productivity in mind while meeting the requirements and specifications of your application. Conveyor ovens are used for curing, drying, annealing, stress relieving, bonding, tempering, preheating, and moisture evaporation, among others. Our Industrial Ovens are generally designed for temperatures of 600°F or less and are suited for a wide variety of materials. We offer many standard models, but we specialize in designing, engineering, and manufacturing high quality custom Industrial Ovens to fit your needs. When working with us for a custom oven, our engineering team will design an oven to fit your exact needs while keeping the oven highly energy efficient and productive, saving you time and money.

    Our designs can handle belt widths of 24″-120” and from 5’ to unlimited length oven chambers and belt extensions. Generally, our Industrial Ovens are used in medium duty applications and processes that are measured in pounds per/hour vs. tons per/hour. HIX Industrial Ovens specializes in Infra-Air, Infrared, and Electric and Gas hot air convection heating designs with an almost unlimited list of custom options available. Let more than 55 years of engineering experience and expertise create the correct Industrial Conveyor Oven for your application! Contact our Industrial Oven Sales Manager for a quote or with any questions!

    • ADDITIONAL AIRFLOW
      • Some applications and processes require a higher volume of air circulation or impingement. By matching the airflow to the process, a higher level of efficiency and product quality can be achieved.
    • AUTOMATIC STARTUP AND SHUTDOWN
      • Automatic start and stop functions save valuable production time by having the oven preheat prior to a production shift or shutdown to avoid accidentally wasting energy when the shift is finished.
    • BELT DIRECTION
      • The belt direction can be set to match the production line layout or process needs. When a dual belt design is used, they can operate in the same or opposite directions.
    • BELT FIXTURES
      • Our engineering team and machine shop can design custom fixtures to carry your product through the oven and simplify your production process.
    • BELT HEIGHT
      • The belt height can be set to match partner equipment while being adjustable for any future production changes.
    • BELT TYPE
      • The correct belt type selection allows for increased process control as it can directly affect the integrity of the part and various aspects of an oven including the airflow and the longevity of the belt. Belt options include: Stainless Steel wire, steel mesh, fiberglass, Nomex, Kevlar, and more.
    • DIGITAL BELT SPEED CONTROL
      • The belt speed adjustments are made simple with a digital belt speed controller. The controller can be set in feet/meters per minute, or for the products retention time inside of the oven chamber.
    • EMERGENCY STOPS
      • Protect your employees and products with emergency stops. The emergency stop’s location, appearance, and function can be customized to suit individual preferences.
    • PHOTO-EYE BELT STOP SENSORS
      • Photo-eye belt stop sensors located on the delivery end of the oven provides multiple benefits. They can help notify an operator when a part is ready to be unloaded, prevent parts from dropping to the floor, or communicate with a robotic assembly.
    • FUME HOODS
      • Fume hoods capture volatile exhaust fumes resulting in a more energy efficient operation and a safer working environment.
    • HEAT CURTAINS
      • For many processes, heat curtains provide added energy efficiency by creating a barrier at the oven chamber openings to retain as much heat as possible inside the oven.
    • HIGH & LOW TEMPERATURE ALARM SENSORS
      • The quality control for a temperature sensitive product benefits from temperature sensors that can be set to sound an alarm or notify the operator if the oven temperature deviates from the set temperature range.
    • BELT INDEXING
      • Belt indexing provides benefits for applications that require the specialized timing of placement and pickup of a part by a robotic assembly. It is used to control the process time and match production cycles.
    • INFEED & DELIVERY BELT EXTENTIONS
      • Conveyor oven belt extensions can be customized to suit the application, from as short as one foot to unlimited lengths.
    • LOCKOUT CONTROLS
      • Lockout controls are used to maintain safety and the proper use of the oven by restricting access to certain controls and switches from unauthorized personnel.
    • MATERIAL AND PRODUCT SPREADERS
      • The arrangement of products on the conveyor belt is important to a curing, drying, or heating process. Spreaders can ensure proper belt loading to maximize the efficiency of time and energy inside the oven chamber.
    • OVEN CHAMBER HEIGHT
      • A specialized oven chamber height allows for increased process control and heat retention by customizing the correct distance between the product and the heat source.
    • POST PROCESS COOLER
      • In certain applications the product needs to be cooled directly after the heating cycle and prior to handling or the next production phase. Filtered forced air coolers can be installed to cool the products at the process requirement rate.
    • PRODUCT INTERFACE CONTROLS
      • HMI and PLC controls can be designed, installed, and programmed to match your application and production needs while keeping the operations control simple and intuitive.
    • ROBOTIC ASSEMBLY INTERFACE
      • Robotic pick and place options range from custom fixtures, to laser or mechanical triggering mechanisms, that let the robotic assembly and oven know it is time to process the next part.
    • SPECIALIZED CONTROLS AND COMMUNICATION
      • Customized controls allow for a higher level of process control and management. Control or monitor your oven remotely or create a system of communication and alarms that protect your products, ovens, and employees.
