701E41 - Machinery

Infrared heating cabinet for sheet materials

Heat plastics in a manner appropriate for the material – quickly, evenly and energy-efficiently.

All advantages of the top models 701E40=WS/ 701E40=S are combined here with a slightly modified material cart design: The work surface of this oven can be removed effortlessly.

All advantages of the top models 701E40=WS/ 701E40=S are combined here with a slightly modified material cart design: The work surface of this oven can be removed effortlessly.

The extendible material cart has a large Teflon-coated work surface. If plastics are heated in a vacuum forming frame, the plate can be removed in one easy step. 3 different vacuum forming frame sizes can be used. The advantage: The plastic sheets are always located in the perfect position for starting the heating process.

Infrared ovens are the first choice when plastics need to be heated in the orthopaedic workshop.

The way they work makes the difference: In conventional convection ovens an object is heated by absorbing ambient heat in a closed compartment. In contrast, the heat in an infrared oven is generated in the form of electromagnetic waves absorbed by the material directly. This has many advantages: Higher speed, greater productivity and a significantly greater energy efficiency are the result.

Heat more quickly – consume less energy

An Ottobock infrared oven heats plastics in a very short time. A 4 mm thick polypropylene sheet can be heated in just 4 to 6 minutes. Infrared ovens do not need to be pre-heated – the radiant heat is fully available in an instant. This significantly reduces energy consumption in the orthopaedic workshop.
