Infrared Heat for the Automotive and Aerospace Industry

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

Airplanes and cars should be more lightweight in order to save fuel. However, they must remain just as safe for passengers. Infrared systems are used in the manufacture of these modern components because they heat these materials without contact, quickly and homogeneously, thus shortening the process times.

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.

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 easily controllable

Popular uses of IR in the transportation industry include:

Decorative foil strips on cars

"Black out" strips around the window are a feature of many modern cars. This is usually achieved by means of sticking an adhesive-backed foil strip to the B pillar of the car. Infrared emitters from Heraeus Noblelight simplify the fitting of those decorative foil strips to the cards.
