From material hardening under heat, via tempering for gentle stress relief, to cooling down to room temperature – with CeraCon Thermal systems you can also master every processing step.
When subjected to temperature, certain materials undergo “physical changes”, e.g. viscous substances cure, casting compounds gel and adhesives dry out.
The heating process generally makes use of electrically heated circulating air; this can be enhanced by means of infrared radiation or induction as required.
Extreme temperatures during a production process can cause structural tension in certain types of materials. These can be gently reduced using thermal processes, for example tempering.
Heat changes the physical properties of materials, e.g. their viscosity or their willingsness to react. Furthermore, it may also change, affect or suppress the course of specific processes.
Generally speaking, the desired purpose of heat treatment within the manufacturing process is closely restricted by time and spatial factors. Returning parts to room temperature simplifies downstream production stages. In this regard, we work with air circulation and a heat exchanger.
