Production Applications for Near Infrared Furnaces
Production and laboratory applications and infrared furnace solutions table
Firing, drying and curing for the dental production processing applications
|Dental processing facilities find the LA-306-series furnaces small, economical and fast. |
The LA-series Dental furnaces are for higher production rates on a 9 or 10" belt.
Near-infrared furnaces provide dental applications with cost effective and easy to operate solutions.
|Near infrared furnaces can heat up to 400-950 C and stabilize in less than 10 minutes. When it is time to change profile or shut down, they can cool down to 400°C in less than 10 minutes.|

|Hybrid Thick Film Firing|
Thick film firing of nobel metals
Thick Film Processing
|The Thick Film industry was revolutionized by the develpoment of the first fast-fire thick film firing furnace in the early 80's. Today IR furnaces still provide the fastest heat up and cool down times.||TF Series furnaces can heat up to 1000°C and stabilize in less than 10 minutes. When it is time to change profile or shut down, they can cool down to 400°C in less than 10 minutes.|
|Electronic Industry Semiconductor|
|Semiconductor Thermal Processes that requres higher production yield and throughput and feature:|
- Start-up in less than 30 minutes for temperature profiles up to 1000°C
- Repeatable profiles
- No degrade of seal process
- Lower internal cavity moisture content
- Low ppm defect rates

The AG Series Furnace was designed specifically to provide precise profiles and atmospheres for silver-glass die atttach. Ideal for processes requiring multi-stage temperature profiles and rapid removal of volatiles.
S-Series are fast, economical controlled atmosphere furnaces for precision high temperature processing.
S-Series High-Temperature furnaces can be equipped with a sophisticated hydrogen package for flip chip wafer bumping.
Drying Polymer Solutions

Polyester Paint Films
Heat Sensitive substrates
Cure Powder Coatings
Thin film curing
Infrared dryers engage transfer of both mass and energy. Heat is transferred from the IR emitters by both radiant and convection means into the polymer solution and causes evaporation of the solvent.
As infrared thermal energy is emitted from lamps above the polymer-substrate, the solvent absorbs the IR radiation triggering vibrations of its molecules and a subsequent transfer of mass and heat.
Flowing air introduced through the chamber walls exits through the exhaust stack carrying away the water vapor and solvent vapor.
