Especially in the hot summer months, t-shirts are a must have! But the imprint is what makes them a genuine eye-catcher. Infrared emitters help to dry these imprints fast and energy efficient.
Lots of motives are applied as screen print inks on textile and need to be dried afterwards.
Calmatech BV is a globally-acknowledged manufacturer of flash cure dryers and tunnel dryers for the textiles industry, with over 20 years experience of drying and heating technology.
The company strives to incorporate the latest technologies in infrared and electronics to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of its dryers.
A recent development saw it replace halogen infrared lamps with medium wave carbon infrared emitters from Heraeus.
The medium wavelength is optimally suited for surface drying, as this wavelength closely matches the absorption characteristics of water.
By contrast, the short wavelength of halogen lamps is more penetrative so that energy is lost as it penetrates the ink and the textile itself.
The new emitters are fitted precisely in the dryers to create an even heat distribution over the target textile surface.
Calmatech BV was able du reduce the drying time from seven to eight seconds, down to two to three seconds, by using Heraeus carbon infrared emitters.
This is a great benefit for the customers, since they do not only get reduced drying time but also reduced energy costs. This is due to the fact that carbon infrared emitters have a very short response time.
Different to halogen emitters which need to be switched on permanently, they are suitable for pulse operation, by being switched on only when required.
Extensive research has shown that a Carbon infrared emitter requires up to 30% less energy than a conventional short wave emitter to carry out the same drying process.

Fraunhofer IZM is joining the EUROPRACTICE IC Service platform. Together, the partners are making fan-out wafer level packaging (FOWLP) for electronic devices available and affordable even in small batches – and thus of interest to research institutes, universities, and SMEs. Costs can be significantly reduced by up to ten customers implementing individual fan-out wafer level packaging for their ICs or other components on a multi-project wafer. The target group includes any organization that does not produce in large quantities, but requires prototypes.
Research always means trying things out and daring to do new things. Research institutes, universities, and SMEs do not produce in large batches, but rather...
A team led by scientists at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory explored how atomically thin two-dimensional (2D) crystals can grow over 3D objects and how the curvature of those objects can stretch and strain the crystals. The findings, published in Science Advances, point to a strategy for engineering strain directly during the growth of atomically thin crystals to fabricate single photon emitters for quantum information processing.
The team first explored growth of the flat crystals on substrates patterned with sharp steps and trenches. Surprisingly, the crystals conformally grew up and...
In a study that combines experimental work and theoretical calculations made possible by supercomputers, scientists have determined the nuclear geometry of two...
The Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute HHI develops next-generation wireless transmission systems (Beyond 5G) based on Terahertz (THz) technologies. The THz technology supports significantly higher data transmission rates than current 4G and 5G mobile wireless technologies. Researchers of the department Photonic Networks and Systems, in collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics IAF, have succeeded in transmitting a 4K video in real-time over a wireless THz link. This was the first time this technology was successfully realized in a real-time experiment. A wireless transmission capacity of 100 Gbit/s was demonstrated over the THz link.
Requirements placed on transmission capacities in communication networks are continuously growing, driven by new applications such as Industry 4.0, autonomous...
Researchers from Sweden's Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg present a new method which can double the energy of a proton beam produced by laser-based particle accelerators. The breakthrough could lead to more compact, cheaper equipment that could be useful for many applications, including proton therapy.
Proton therapy involves firing a beam of accelerated protons at cancerous tumours, killing them through irradiation. But the equipment needed is so large and...
