A continuous-process composite curing oven was shipped to a government contractor for rotational curing of large composite mandrels in a continuous process. The oven was designed and built by Lewco Inc., Sandusky, Ohio.

A critical design parameter was having the conveyor start and stop for indexing while still maintaining rotation. While inside the oven, the mandrels will travel through two independently controlled curing zones plus a chilled air-cooling zone at the end. Scroll down to view the video.
