Did you know how many parts of your car require infrared heat?
Drivers need a quiet cabin, a well-functioning heater for the winter or air-conditioning during the hot summer months, and – in case of an emergency – the airbag should open quickly. For that reason, dashboards are molded from plastic sheets, are provided with insulation and are connected to ventilation ducts and airbag shot channels.
Infrared emitters can solve all the heat processes needed for those operations, as they can be precisely matched to the different materials and shapes.
It is a well-known fact that infrared emitters can cure coatings efficiently. However, did you know that the right choice of emitters make a considerable difference in the process? When infrared radiation is matched perfectly to fit the coating, the curing process can be performed in a more energy-efficient way. This saves time, space and money.
Many other processes in automotive manufacturing benefit from infrared heat technology as well. Infrared radiation transfers energy without contact and generates heat exactly where it is needed in time with the process and without heating up the surroundings unnecessarily.
