Follow one method of selecting the heating method for a process or product. Like many other products that must be heated, an electric motor stator has areas of high mass and materials of construction that are sensitive to overheating. What is the best way to heat such a part without creating defects?
At the beginning of every heating process, the question that should be asked is, “What is the best heating method for this part or process?” Many heating options are available, and this article will compare two: gas convection and quartz infrared heating. Both heating methods are effective, but of course, neither is effective for every type of part. This article also will address some of the questions that arise at the beginning of a project and offer insight into how to answer these questions. The same review process can be used for most other heating applications.
