Infrared heating for automotive parts - .PDF file.

By installing a carbon infrared system to pre-heat acoustic soundproofing sheets prior to moulding, Faurecia has significantly reduced production cycle times and virtually eliminated maintenance costs and machine down-time on one of its major moulding machines.

An essential part of the moulding process is the pre-heating of the PE-EVA (polyethylene ethylene vinyl acetate) sheet.

This heat was previously delivered by medium wave infrared foil heaters, which were proving expensive to maintain.

Moreover, the slowness of the heating operation, which also involved pre-heating the blanks with large hot water radiators, was starting to create a production bottleneck.
