Planting roses or digging over the vegetable patch - tools are necessary for any kind of work around the garden or house. Colored shovel blades are not just nice to look at, the applied coating additionally helps protect the blade against rust and corrosion.
The powder coating on the metal blades of the shovel, as well as the coating of machine parts, rims or engine housings, can be cured with infrared heat.
Gardening tools are exposed to plenty of nature's features - they have to withstand dirt and now and then the occasional downpour.
However, rain is not the only hazard: sunlight makes the colors on your gardening tools fade.
This is why it is of upmost importance for you gardening tools, e.g. a shovel, to be produced and coated at high quality. It is necessary that the coating remains on the product for two reasons: A well-coated garden shovel is aesthetically more pleasing than one with its coating chipping off. Furthermore, the coating helps protect the shovel.
A high quality and efficient coating of metals can be achieved with infrared emitters from Heraeus Noblelight.
Infrared heat - basics
Infrared heat transfers energy and generates heat where it is needed. PLC controlled infrared ovens are precisely designed to match the thermal process application. This saves energy, improves process stability and increases capacity and quality. The emitted radiation is in the range of 3,5 to 5,5 µm and thus exactly matches the absorption spectrum of powder coatings and water.
Gas catalytic infrared - efficient and reliable heating processes
Gas catalytic IR heat is idead for several processes, for example the coating of heat-sensitive substrates such as MDF, powder coating of metallic and non-metallic substrates, drying processes and thermoforming of plastics. The coating of the shovel blade is cured with a gas catalytic infrared system, thus making sure that the shovel does not oxidize and that the colors do not fade or chip off.
Gas catalytic infrared emitters convert natural gas or propane into medium to long wave infrared by using a special platinum catalyst. This flameless reaction differentiates the gas catalytic infrared system from other conventional infrared systems where gas is burnt in the process.
The heaters are available in ten standard sizes that can be combined to create large or small oven systems depending on the application. Each system can be split into any number of individual PLC controlled zones for precise process control.

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.
The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
