Energy-efficient heating system
Published:  07 February, 2018

A custom-built, fast response medium wave (FRMW) infra-red heating system from HERAEUS NOBLELIGHT is helping in the production line fitting of sound-deadening pads to the Jaguar F-TYPE at Jaguar Land Rover’s manufacturing site at Castle Bromwich. Following successful tests carried out at Heraeus’s Neston Applications Centre, a compact 12 kW medium wave infra-red oven was installed at the pad fitting location on the production line. This is contained within a 1.6m aluminium framework, which features two heated zones, each equipped with three, 2kW fast response medium wave emitters with integral gold reflectors for maximum efficiency.

The company says the new oven has proved extremely easy to operate and its compact size has allowed it to be comfortably fitted within the limited line side space available.
