Infrared Heat 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 - 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.

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:

Infrared heat for pre-ageing of convertible hoods

By installing a fast response, medium wave infrared system from Heraeus Noblelight, Bentley Motors is ensuring that the hoods of its new Continental GT Convertible models are both free of creases and pre-aged to provide better durability when they are delivered to customers.
