Infrared emitters for the automotive industry

Your heat processes in the automotive industry: heating, drying, curing, welding, glueing, laminating, deburring. Numerous process challenges need to be met efficiently in the automotive industry-Infrared heat helps!

Crease-free seat covers, matching garnish mouldings and panellings, exactly deburred steering wheel caps and neatly welded containers for wiping and washing water or brake fluids are just some examples.
Infrared heat can be used in a variety of ways, e.g. for heating, drying, welding and glueing. For this, IR emitters are precisely adjusted to the material and the process, so they provide heat selectively and in line with cycles.
This helps automate industrial processes and saves time, costs and energy.

Your advantages with infrared heat:

  • Infrared emitters are precisely adjusted with regard to voltage and power
  • They can precisely follow edges and rims
  • Short reaction times make infrared emitters well controllable

See for yourself what infrared heat can do!
Here some application examples:

Infrared heat improves quality of deburring process

Infrared heat improves quality of deburring process

Many plastic parts are manufactured by injection moulding or pressing. In the process, the formation of sharp burrs cannot always be prevented. Infrared radiation heats plastic parts within seconds directly at their surface. Therefore burrs can be easily melted away.

Infrared emitters optimize vacuum laminating

Infrared heat optimize vacuum laminating

Car doors, centre consoles and dashboards are made of plastic carrier parts that are clad wih foil. This is usually done by vacuum laminating, a process in which an adhesive is applied to the foil or the carrier part.

Two tailor-made infrared systems help give the headliner in the Bentley Continental 2 and 4 door models a perfect fit and prolong their service life.

Carbon infrared emitters improve the protective coating of truck springs

Infrared system helps securely fasten rear spoilers

Steel leaf springs need protective varnish against corrosion. Weweler Colaert of Belgium has optimised the coating of a whole range of leaf springs for heavy goods vehicles by means of a tailor-made drying oven with Heraeus Noblelight infrared emitters.

Carbon infrared emitters improve the protective coating of truck springs

In a premium car like the Jaguar XJ, all elements must be processed with perfection. Glued parts must also be reliably fastened. This requires a heat-reactive adhesive to reach its specified temperature quickly and precisely. For this, Jaguar is using tailor-made infrared systems.
