A custom, multi-zone conveyor oven will soon be used to melt high temperature polymer into a steel ring that houses electronic components. The conveyor oven, which was manufactured by Wisconsin Oven, East Troy, Wis., has four independent heating zones that allow the customer to rearrange the oven to obtain the desired heating zone lengths. The belt conveyor oven is capable of processing 25 parts per hour.

Wisconsin Oven included four independent heating zones, a cool-down zone that utilizes a 1,500 cfm propeller fan to cool parts, and an adjustable-speed speed with digital display.
