Infra-red heating system
Published:  28 April, 2016

A fast response medium wave (FRMW) infra-red heating system from HERAEUS NOBLELIGHT is reported to be helping Dura Automotive Systems of Castle Bromwich to ensure the reliable and precise adhesion of molded thermoplastic sealings to custom-designed, automotive glass windows. The system is located in a robotic cell and integrates exactly with the robot cycle.

Unlike a warm air oven, an infra-red system takes up very little space, can be precisely controlled to synchronise with the robot operations and can be very energy-efficient. Tests were carried out at Heraeus Noblelight’s applications centre in Neston, Wirral, and these proved so successful that a 24 kW Carbon medium infra red (CIR) system was installed in the robot manufacturing cell.
