Infrared emitters for moulding, embossing, laminating, thermoforming

Infrared emitters for moulding, embossing, laminating, thermoforming

The surfaces of modern plastic materials need to be heated homogeneously prior to embossing and laminating.
Large-scale foils or robust floorings require the heat to be spread uniformly and without loss also into the border areas.
Infrared systems can be designed in such a way that the entire surface is heated quickly and homogeneously. Moreover, the heat is applied immediately in front of the press or the embossing gap.
This saves energy and costs and improves quality.

Your advantages with infrared heat:

  • Contactless heat transmission, no intermediate medium required
  • Infrared emitters heat the surface of plastics within seconds
  • Optimal dimensioning of the plant ensures a more homogeneous heat process
  • Infrared emitters provide heat in a targeted way and this ensures optimal use of energy

Here some application examples:

Infrared heat improves embossing process for foils

Infrared heat improves embossing process for foils

A carbon infrared system helps API Foils Ltd in the UK to increase the production speed during the hot-embossing of holographic foils and to better control the embossing process.

Infrared heat for dashboards

Infrared heat for dashboards

A car's dashboard is made of plastic brought into shape with heat and provided with a noise-absorbing coating. For this process, Faurecia uses carbon infrared emitters and since then has been saving a lot of time and energy.

Heraeus Noblelight carbon infrared emitters help Polyflor of Manchester emboss robust floor coverings and ensure improved quality.

Infrared heat shapes plastic pipes more efficiently

Infrared heat shapes plastic pipes more efficiently.

Infrared emitters can be precisely adjusted to the material and the process and this saves energy. Moreover, the high heat transmission capacity of the infrared radiation can shorten the heating time, which helps speed up production or save precious space for manufacturing.
