Infrared systems for heat treatment of GRP, CFRP, FRP, composite materials and plastics in general

The trend to lightweight materials in all common industrial sectors contains a huge potential for infrared applications. The production of these materials takes place under the aid of specific heat supply to activate and accelerate the proceedings as well as to realize hardening processes.

Previous mini-series of carbon components are going to be replaced by medium series. So far the application has been concentrated to fewer applications (e. g. aircraft industry, racing and automobiles luxury class). Due to improved and more cost-effective manufacturing methods a widespread industrial application can be observed. This trend will grow in the coming years and, from the vantage point of the present, will last for an indefinite period. Intelligent infrared-systems by IBT are going to accompany this development.

One of the activator for this rapid development is the trend to electro mobility (BMW AG, Tesla Motors Inc.). Challenging plastics and composites systems differ in low-cost and high-end versions and require exactly adjusted processing options.

Integrated quartz- or ceramic-emitter guarantee a fast heating rate, adjustable voltage supply and – if required – high emitter temperatures. We assume punctual as well as extensive heating tasks, which are controllable adjusted to clock- and cycle times.

In an exemplary application our high-efficient STIR®-heaters are treating interior components of carbon-fiber, such as used in the interior space of sports cars.
