We are doing business in Mexico and need to cure a water-based glue on 4 x 8' panels. Years ago, I designed and used microwave energy successfully to glue wooden shakes edge-to-edge to make a uniform 14" product.

We are able to offer suitable 50 Å power supplies up to 100 kW. I would suggest either 13.56 or 27.12 MHz as the most practical and effective operating frequency. The power supplies are manufactured by our company in the United States; all industrial application and associated matching development work is carried out in the United Kingdom. - Steve Ottaway, Comdel Europa, 011 44 1256 766914; e-mail
