WECO Client Case Studies
Following our slogan of “Putting the Pieces Together”, WECO integrates our products to provide new and retrofit oven assemblies and controls for a variety of infrared heating applications, including forming, curing, and drying. Check out the case studies below to see how we put the pieces together to create IR heating solutions for our customers.
Although clamshell ovens are a standard offering, this project showcased the power of innovation. By prioritizing efficiency, speed, and performance, WECO and Cermicx crafted a product that stands at the intersection of practicality and innovation. It is a valuable addition to any production process that requires the curing of synthetic materials.
Finding the need to optimize production of their speaker line, a leading USA based consumer electronics company reached out to WECO International. The system was designed to cure foam on the back outer edge of polycarbonate speaker baskets at an accelerated time rate. Engineers designed a 42 kW infrared long-wave tunnel oven which was supplied in two sections.
A polyethylene film supplier sought to improve production and efficiency in preheating polyethylene film prior to embossing for food packaging. The key to the state-of-the-art machinery is the arrays of infrared ceramic, flat square hollow elements (SFEH). The new infrared heat system improved the start up times, line speed, and was a weight reduction on the installation.
This client was struggling with an outdated and inconsistent thermoforming heating system. Ceramicx has the technology needed to provide the client with a new up-to-date system that can produce the same product every time while also improving quality and productivity.
