  • Curing Batch Oven With Rotating Drums For Medical Industry

    Monday, January 26, 2015 Wisconsin Oven Corporation announced the shipment of an electrically heated walk-in batch oven with two (2) rotating drums for post curing of injection molded silicone rubber medical parts. Typically, these parts are placed in a tray on a cart which can cause them to stick together. The use of a rotating drum during the curing process of the silicone rubber parts prevents them from sticking together and allows for a uniform cure. This rotating technique can be used on any post curing of silicone parts...

  • Wisconsin Oven Ships Powder Coating Batch Ovens with Horizontal Split Lines

    Tuesday, February 10, 2015 Wisconsin Oven Corporation announced the shipment of two (2) electrically heated walk-in batch ovens that will be used for baking tool castings and curing powder coatings. The two (2) powder coating batch ovens were purchased to replace the customer’s older batch ovens that were failing due to age. Due to the limited height of doorways and a freight elevator in the customer’s 150 plus year old mill building, the ovens were built with a horizontal split line. This split line allowed the ovens to be...

  • 6 Types of Industrial Ovens

    Industrial ovens are a necessary part of many different factory processes. Ovens are used to cure, bake, cook, dry, heat, and perform many other functions in factories. An industrial oven is usually created for a specific purpose, such as a large bread oven or ceramic-drying oven. In general, ovens cannot switch functions. In the industrial world, there are six different types of ovens that help facilitate industrial processes on a large scale. These ovens include: Baking ovens: A baking oven is used for baking. A baking oven can combine the...

  • Despatch Announces Uniformity Test Results for LAC2-18 Bench-top Oven Used to Cure Adhesives

    Test results on a loaded Despatch LAC2-18 benchtop oven confirm temperature uniformity for customer. The temperature range of all six thermocouples was within +/- 0.7°C which exceeded the customer's requirements. (PRWEB) January 15, 2015 Despatch ovens are known for superior temperature uniformity which is critical to consistent product quality. Uniformity is confirmed using a nine-point test conducted in an empty oven after stabilization period. A second test with product loaded should also be conducted to ensure that the oven is delivering uniform heat to all parts. A customer...

  • LEWCO Utilizes Humidification System for Curing Special Coating

     When a leading company in the aerospace industry was in need of an oven to suit their unique application, they turned to the experts at LEWCO. Their application involved curing a specialty coating on composite parts while maintaining relative humidity above 50%RH. The custom walk-in oven will operate around 168°F. and will sustain temperature uniformity of +/- 10°F. throughout the workspace. Maintaining relative humidity above 50%RH created a challenge for the engineers at LEWCO as adding moisture to raise the relative humidity at elevated temperatures isn’t an easy task...

Industry Information

Curing Ovens

A curing oven is defined as a thermal processing piece of equipment that causes a chemical reaction in a product with the use of heat. Curing ovens are utilized to harden products made from rubber, plastics, and various types of metals, and are almost exclusively used in the manufacturing industry. However, curing ovens come in many varieties, and there are numerous applications within the realm of manufacturing that require their use. Curing ovens are usually built with steel insulated panels, steel frames, and include a heating element. Curing ovens can be powered by either electricity or by natural gas, and can often be custom-designed to meet the requirements of a specific application. In addition to customization, there are specialized curing methods that fortify certain materials, such as carbon fiber material and paint.

A curative method that has been recently discovered and is becoming more widely utilized is curing by way of exposure to ultraviolet radiation. UV curing was originally introduced in the 1960’s, and became quickly adopted by a multitude of industries such as metal, glass, and plastic decorating, converting, electronics, telecommunications, automotive, and graphic arts. Over the next 50 years, UV curing has grown into a multi-billion dollar worldwide industry. The UV curing process uses a photochemical reaction. In other words, UV curing uses light instead of heat. The desired material is mixed with a small percentage of photo-initiators before being exposed to ultraviolet light. The material—whether it is an adhesive, a coating, or an ink—hardens within a matter of seconds. UV curing has quite a few advantages. First, UV-curable inks , adhesives, and coatings serve as a beneficial alternative to materials that are solvent-based. As opposed to solvent evaporation, which creates environmental pollutants and can reduce the thickness of the coating by up to 50 percent, UV curing involves no solvents, and thus no loss of volume or thickness in the coating. In turn, UV curing grants higher productivity, reduced turnaround time, less waste, less consumption of energy, and less emission of pollutants. Other benefits of UV curing include improvement in the physical properties of adhesives, coatings, and inks, reduced work-in-process, drastically reduced setup and cleanup labor, and less necessary floor space.

Today, UV curing technology has evolved to the point where manufacturers are now able to apply it to three-dimensional components. Examples include fiberglass composite parts, electric motor housings, golf balls, contoured wood products, automotive lighting assemblies, and plastic molded parts such as mobile phone cases. UV curing of 3-D parts is not without its challenges, however. UV curing is a “line of sight” process, meaning that every part of a give surface must be exposed to the UV radiation in order for the curing to be successful. “Shadow” areas, or any part of the object’s surface which is hidden, will not be cured. Fortunately, hybrid thermal and UV coatings are being developed that will assist manufacturers in achieving a thorough cure.

Powder coating is one example of the many types of processes carried out by a curing oven. The process of powder coating involves using static electricity to apply a powdered thermoplastic resin to a surface. The powdered resin gels and forms a protective layer around the surface of a product upon exposure to the curing oven’s heat. Numerous industries use this method of curing in order to enhance the appearance of their products, such as aerospace, marine, automotive, and furniture. Aesthetic purposes aside, various industries also utilize curing ovens to dry, preheat, and cure specific parts and components of a product. Curing ovens are used for the curing of rubber, also known as vulcanization, involves strengthening rubber products using chemicals and heat. Other processes which can be carried out by curing ovens include temperature testing, baking, sintering, and metal finishing.

Curing ovens deal with a wide variety of materials. Although the properties of these materials vary, they all react nearly the exact same way to the curing process. For example, resin materials, with the help of added heat and sometimes chemical additives, are strengthened during curing due to the process catalyzing the cross-linking of the resin’s polymer chains. Metal materials are prone to oxidation, or the degradation of surfaces due to prolonged exposure to oxygen. Heat curing the metal can not only help prevent oxidation, but also improve the metal’s durability and strength. If manufacturers need to cure metal in environments where oxidation must be avoided, there are specially designed vacuum ovens available that will enable manufacturers to cure metal under a strictly controlled atmospheric and chemical environment.
