The HIX Advantage
The HIX Advantage is what a customer receives when they buy a HIX Industrial Oven. From a conveyor oven for annealing plastics or curing epoxies, or a room-sized batch oven for powder coat curing or moisture evaporation, to any other custom built Industrial Oven. The HIX Advantage falls into four distinct categories which are derived from completely understanding the customer’s application, product, and process.
HIX Industrial Ovens has a distinct advantage over the competition. We design our Industrial Ovens specific to our customers needs gathering from over 55 years of design and engineering innovation. Our first step is to find out exactly what the need is and where the custom built Industrial Oven will fit in your production system. With this knowledge, our engineers design the correct Industrial Oven to efficiently fit your production requirements. Our Industrial conveyor ovens, batch ovens, walk-in ovens, continuous web ovens, and tower ovens can be customized in every way. In width, length, height, and temperature, with PLC & HMI controls, custom belts & fixtures, integrated with robotics, integrated with process coolers, or built to NFPA 86 or OSHA Class II Division 1 standards. We are proud to offer an extensive list of options, quality part selection, easy maintenance access, high energy efficiency, and experience with modification and design for use with specific products. Most importantly, we design our Industrial Ovens around your production needs!
Higher efficiency equals lower utility costs and increased profits. Our Industrial Ovens are Green Rated and we offer custom Infrared heating elements and Hot Air Convection heating systems that are engineered for higher efficiency rates than normal to efficiently and safely convert electricity or natural gas to heat. Our ovens have up to 97% of the heated air recirculated, and are constructed with triple wall insulation, and have adjustable doors or heat curtains on oven chamber openings to increase the heat retention.
True customization and design can be difficult to find. Many companies will add a few basic options to a standard oven and consider it customized. At HIX Industrial Ovens, we design and engineer our ovens and dryers around the customer’s application, product and process requirements regardless of the heat type, size, or special requests. Whether it is modifying a standard oven or designing and engineering a custom Industrial Oven from the ground up, we will meet your need. We are able to modify the smallest of details such as the wavelength range of our Infrared heaters, the width, length, and type of the conveyor belt, the oven controls, and much much more. You tell us what you need, and we can design and engineer an oven to fit. It’s no secret why companies recommend HIX Industrial Ovens for specialty products and processes. We are the best!
‘Quality by design!’ is our credo. We have a detailed information intake system, experienced engineers using the most modern state-of-the-art CAD design systems, and highly skilled craftsmen that build each Industrial Oven one at a time, utilizing rigid quality control standards. Our custom Industrial Ovens are built in a completely integrated facility, including an aluminum foundry, CNC machinery, welding, metal fabrication, painting, assembly, and testing. Due to our very thorough and comprehensive processes, HIX Industrial Ovens can ensure the highest quality in all stages of the manufacturing process. An example is that we manufacture our custom Infrared heat panels to the size and watt density that you need to ensure consistent curing temperatures and efficient performance. When completed, your Industrial Oven is fully tested before it is shipped to ensure many years of trouble-free service. Our standard and custom built Industrial Ovens are ETL listed (U.S. models), CSA approved (Canadian models), and CE approved (European models), Our electric ovens are built to UL-499 standards and our gas fired ovens are built to UL-795 standards. Our highly regulated production facility is one of the keys to our success. Our production standards rely on a foundation of communication between our departments during all phases, from the information intake to the final production, guaranteeing that your Industrial Oven is correct for your application.
Whether you’re interested in batch ovens or conveyor ovens, HIX Industrial Ovens are used in a wide range of industrial and commercial applications, from electronics, plastics, chemicals, powder coating, rubber, and glass, to other custom and industrial processes that require the drying, curing, annealing, or heating of products. We also offer on-site installations! To get started on your custom Industrial Oven, contact us here
