Curing

  • HIX industrial curing ovens are process designed yet versatile. They are used for curing resins and epoxies and are designed to hold temperature points with high levels of accuracy to make sure that the chemical reactions of a curing process are happening at the most optimal temperature and rate. Curing is common in a number of industries such as automotive, medical, aerospace, electronics, and more. Our sales team works intimately with our engineering and production departments to make sure that you get exactly what you need out of your industrial curing oven.

    • Most curing ovens are built for 600°F or less
    • Infra-Air, infrared, electric hot air convection, gas hot air convection
    • Process oriented design and specifications

    • Oven Opening Height
      • A specialized oven opening height allows accurate air flow and heat retention to fit your specific process, while maintaining an appropriate distance from your heat source to your product.
    • Belt Height
      • Belt height can be adjusted to match neighboring equipment or to the preference of workers in order to streamline efficiency, and allow for changes in the work environment.
    • Belt Type
      • Belt selection allows for increased control over air flow, belt life span, and even heating. this can also affect the attachment of specialized belt fixtures.
    • Product Interface Device
      • Our HMI device keeps your process and production needs simple and intuitive.
    • Specialized Controls and Communication
      • Customized controls can allow for a better regulated process while providing information and feedback regarding the process. It can also be set up for remote updating, feedback, alerts, and alarms if the set parameters are not met.
    • Additional Airflow
      • Some processes require a high level of air circulation or impingement. By matching airflow to process a high level of process efficiency and quality can be achieved.
    • Eye Stop Sensors
      • Our eye stop sensors are placed at the exit of the oven to alert employees or a robotic system that a part has finished it’s oven treatment.
    • Belt Fixtures
      • Custom belt fixtures can be created by our engineering team and machine shop in order to safely carry your product while maintaining even and excellent heating.
    • Indexing Belt
      • Indexing belts separate parts into appropriate spacing to maintain proper airflow and provide more even heating or can be used to control production cycles.
    • Post Process Cooler
      • In situations where products need to be cooled prior to handling or the next stage in product creation, filtered ambient air coolers cool and blow the air to evenly reduce temperature at a controlled pace.
    • Robotic Pick and Place Interface
      • This interface allows you to fully integrate robotic pick and place systems to streamline production. Our pick and place options range from custom fixtures designed for precision arm movements, to sensors that will alert a robotic arm to pick and place your products.
    • Heat Curtains
      • Heat curtains are critical to efficient heat retention in curing oven models with conveyor belts by locking in as much hot air as possible in the oven chamber.
    • High/Low Temp Alarm Sensors
      • Temperature sensors are critical for quality assurance. in the case of a process error, alarms will notify employees that the temperatures are out of our appropriate range.
    • Infeed/Exit Feed Length Adjustment
      • Oven conveyor extensions can be customized for any length between one foot and unlimited feet.
    • Fume Hoods
      • Fume hoods capture fumes or volatiles and vent them to ensure quality heat exchange and safe working conditions.
    • Emergency Stops
      • Emergency stops are critical to employees and product safety. Each unit’s location, look, and function can be adjusted to suit your preferences.
    • Auto Shutdown/Start Up
      • Operations are made more efficient by having automatic start and stop functions that save valuable time and energy by starting and stopping oven operation before and after each shift.
    • Digital Belt Speed Control
      • Belt speed adjustment is made simple and easy with our digital belt speed control. This interface can be set in feet/meters per minute or product time inside the oven chamber.
    • Material and Product Spreaders
      • Properly arranging your product for processing is critical for proper airflow and heat exchange while ensuring appropriate load of the belt.
    • Lockout Controls
      • Ensure that proper operations continue with lockout panels for switches and control interfaces.
    • Belt Direction
      • The direction of your belt can be set in any direction. Twin belt systems can have belts going the same or opposite directions so suit whatever your industrial curing oven needs are.
