Infrared heat for plastics processing

Deburring of steering wheels, welding of containers, embossing of foils or painting of displays - infrared emitters have optimised many processes in the plastics processing industry.

Infrared emitters are heat sources that can be precisely adjusted to the product and the processing step, with respect to
wavelength , power output and even shape.
Cleverly arranged IR emitters and flexible designs enable heat processes even on products of complex shapes , and make it possible to switch on and off the infrared emitters in seconds, which saves energy and money.

Your advantages with infrared heat:

  • Contactless infrared heating within seconds makes plastics welding simple and reproducible
  • Emitters exactly shaped to the contours of the product help automate deburring, welding and adhesive activation
  • Infrared emitters precisely adjusted to the product and the process save time, space and energy

Here some application examples:

Infrared welding of transport containers

Infrared welding of transport containers

Infrared heat is used to produce complex transport containers from injection-moulded plastic slabs - fast and in an automated process.

Infrared heat welds pressure vessels

Infrared heat welds pressure vessels

A British company uses containers made of glass-fibre reinforced polypropylene to treat water. The cylindrical water tanks are made of two halves which are welded together by short-wave infrared radiation.
