Infra-red heating tunnels
Designed to warm rigid plastic pipe & profile prior to the cutter.
When cutting rigid plastic pipe & profile in-line it is sometimes necessary to pre-warm the material. The amount of extra warmth is usually quite small, but this can dramatically improve the cut finish, especially when using one of our Servo-Torq rotary cutters.
The infra-red (IR) tunnels we manufacture feature medium-wave emitters as the heat source. These have a fast switch-on/switch-off function so heat levels can be precisely controlled. The latest IR technology also uses less energy & allows for faster extrusion linespeeds.
A range of heat levels are available to suit differing polymer types, product sizes & linespeeds.
All our infra-red tunnels come with full safety guarding & a safe-off to prevent any fire risk.
