A custom industrial oven will be used for curing epoxy on medical devices. Thermal Product Solutions, New Columbia, Pa., designed the oven with two independent conveyors that utilized a light sensor to detect the products. Safety was a concern for the customer, so 80/20 guarding was designed and placed around all safety hazards.
The Gruenberg dual-lane oven has a maximum temperature rating of 450°F (232°C). The equipment’s air heating system includes seamless tubular Incoloy-sheathed heaters that are suspended in the plenum adjacent to the process chamber so that work in progress and operators are protected.
