Minneapolis-based Despatch Industries has received an order for a custom, multi-zone conveyor oven from a long-time customer, a manufacturer of automotive components. The order represents the customer’s sixth conveyor drying unit, which completes its facility-wide equipment upgrade. Despatch designed the ovens for two different drying processes, each with specific airflow, temperature and uniformity requirements.

“Our relationship with this customer began over 15 years ago when we ran a number of tests in our Innovation Center to find the best solution for their component-drying application,” says Rolf Kragseth, Despatch sales.
