Infrared heating in a vacuum

Advanced manufacturing methods such as for the production of solar cells or integrated circuits in microelectronics often require a vacuum.
Vacuum methods also are advantageous for the coating of glass or metal because undesirable oxidation processes are ruled out. IR-systems transfer heat contact free and efficient.

Infrared heating in a vacuum

Many of these processes require powerful heat sources that can be controlled precisely. Quartz glass infrared emitters offer some advantages. They transfer heat without contact and with high power and, moreover, react very quickly to control commands.

Heraeus Noblelight is operating a vacuum test chamber at its own Application Competence Center. It is used to select infrared emitters that are precisely tuned to the particular product and process.


Your advantages with infrared radiation:

  • Infrared radiation is transferred without contact and hence optimally suited for heat processes in a vacuum
  • Infrared emitters react quickly and are therefore easy to control and regulate
