Curing, Drying, Melting - How We Test - Then Build An Oven

Your customers are our customers. We cure, melt or dry the coatings made by the attendees and coating OEMs. Attendees will learn: Each customer is different; part shape and substrate, budgets, and floor space. Whatever the requirements or restrictions, “The Coating Must Be Cured.” The presentation will also discuss how we test customer products in our testing lab for IR - Infrared, Convection and how those are used to build a UV oven. Specific types of infrared emitters will be presented, and which application they are better suited for. Convection oven design will be discussed, air flow efficiency vs. duct design, sizes and orientation of conveyor through the ovens. This is an overview of ovens of various types and configurations, and why it is important to attendees of this PC Summit.
