At Thermal Innovations Corp., we design and fabricate custom electric infrared heating systems used by customers in the automotive, electrical, heavy equipment, and general manufacturing industries. Utilizing a diverse knowledge base and extensive industry experience, our engineers design equipment for a variety of heating applications. Applications include powder and wet paint curing, bonding, melting, and specialty heating applications. While the heating process is central to what we do, the systems we manufacture are very diverse. Examples of complementary components and systems include equipment for material application and automated part handling.

Custom systems are designed around a given process, not the other way around. The hardware and machinery for an application is only chosen after all parameters of the process have been thoroughly understood. Customers receive equipment that is optimized for their operating conditions and processing needs instead of being forced to adapt to an inefficient heating system. This may include a single heating technology or a combination of heating methods developed for a specific application.

Infrared heating excels in water-based coating applications. With electric IR systems, heat can be delivered very precisely to targeted locations on the part. This makes infrared heating systems ideal for use in modern, environmentally conscious processing systems. In a similar vein, infrared heating only heats the surface of the object, which minimizes heat waste during the curing process. Electric infrared systems require less capital investment and are preferred to gas heating systems for more heat-sensitive material applications. We can provide assistance in determining the optimal heating method, or combination of heating methods for a given part size, material, and processing requirements.
