Heating Solutions

When designing our mould heating, we look into maximizing performance. Understanding what is being heated is key to achieving uniform temperature and short cure cycles. Our selection of heating design vary from direct electrical, top laminate air, local water or a multiple-sources heating solution “Smart Heating”. Our end-product ensures safe process, optimized cure and reduced process TaKt.

Direct Electrical Heating System

  • Electrical Mouldskin Heating: High temperature resistive cable UL approved
  • Heating Zones tailored to suit Blade architecture and Process.
  • Cure capability up to 120ºC
  • Ramp rate 1ºC/min up to 90ºC
  • Power: Combination of standard power (700 W/m2) and high power (up to 1400 W/m2)
Cable Lamination

Cable Lamination

Top Laminate Air Heating

  • Air heating: Provides reduction in cure times
  • Better Process Control: Stable and predictable blade shell cure times
  • Reduction in exotherm temperature peaks, more even temperature distribution throughout the part surface
  • Reduction in blade bond cure
  • Energy savings due to less required power from mould and less cooling power required to compensate for heat losses to factory ambient (specially during summer)
