Short-Wave Infrared Emitters
October 16, 2007
Short-wave infrared emitters are used to weld various sections of a high-density polyethylene (HDPE) panel during its forming into a box within a special-purpose machine. Complex wheeled trolleys are produced from injection-molded plastic panels quickly in an automated process. The infrared emitters transmit heat without contact to suit the programmed production processes. This protects the material, improves the quality of the end product, and according to the manufacturer, reduces final costs.
