ITW EAE, a division of Illinois Tool Works, redesigned its HEPA-filtered Despatch PCC1-40 conveyor oven to reduce the time to ship to just eight weeks.

The redesigned model, with a maximum operating temperature of 500°F (260°C), has a stainless steel interior and exterior. All interior seams are continuously back welded to prevent insulation particles from entering the oven workspace.

The oven’s conveyor opening has an adjustable-slide gate that can be easily lowered to prevent heat loss and raised for larger parts. The entrance and exit length of the conveyor can be adjusted by shifting the conveyor. A stainless steel, perforated supply plenum provides an even distribution of vertical-down airflow.
