Industrial facilities need a finishing system that is unique to their manufacturing operations. Included among the equipment is a curing oven, the last step in the painting process. These ovens or booths raise the product’s temperature to a high degree for the coating to set. Here’s what you need to know about the uses, features, and controls are for an industrial curing oven for paint finishing.
Industrial curing ovens provide a clean environment for baking and curing parts after the paint application process. High temperature rated fans provide slow and consistent hot air to the cabin, while insulated wall panels ensure the heated air is contained and safe to the touch outside. Thick, insulated doors provide easy access to inside the oven and allow parts to be brought in and out quickly.
Ovens and curing booths can be designed to your specifications, including temperature, air change cycles, and more. These insulated and high-performance setups can be customized to fit your existing or new facility layout. However, it’s crucial to define line speed, product window size, hanging spacing, and product and conveyor weight before designing a curing oven.
For a complete installation package, consider pairing a sanding, priming, and painting prep area with your curing oven.
An industrial curing oven has five main components: oven enclosure, heater unit, supply air system, recirculated air system, and exhaust air system.
Knowing the right temperatures and curing time will depend on the coating supplier who provides specifications. However, the controls for an industrial curing oven are quite simple. With Accudraft’s SmartPad digital control panel, all process information and settings are in one compact and easy to read unit. Fan speed, temperature control, and more can be adjusted and monitored through the SmartPad.
