Maintaining a temperature of 250° F on Micarta strips after after removal from a pre-heating oven. The temperature of the strips must be maintained and until they are ready for the punch press operation.
For satisfactory punching, the Micarta strips must be at 250° F. The strips are first preheated in an oven, then the stack is placed on the bench of the punch press. A Chromalox RAD heater is suspended over the stack to maintain the processing temperature.
Processing temperature is satisfactorily maintained and no time is lost due to decrease in temperature.
- An economical solution to the problem, both from original cost and operating standpoints.
- Very little space required.
- No discomfort for operator as heat is applied only to material.
