|The plate heater assemblies consist of machined plates which
accommodate either square swaged cartridge heater or formed cable
heaters. The heater assemblies can be supplied in any desired material
including aluminum, bronze, stainless steel and steel. The plates and
components can be readily plated or coated to provide corrosion
resistance or special non-stick properties for sealing applications. A
slot style square cartridge or cable heater and lead mounting method
insure full protection of the elements and lead system while simplifying
repair of accidental damage.
The new plate and component heater design provides higher reliability
and performance than cast and mica style plate heaters while offering
greater versatility. The assemblies do not require patterns for
temporary sand molds or expensive permanent molds and can be
manufactured in smaller sizes, thinner constructions and more complex
configurations than cast heater or mica plate heater styles.
Performance benefits include higher temperature and wattage
capabilities, improved heat uniformity, reduced thermal mass and
increased heating efficiency. Plate and component heater assemblies
having irregular shapes and requiring multiple holes, slots and cutout
areas are readily manufactured through the use of formed square
cartridges installed in corresponding machined mounting slots. Special
features including distributed wattage, multiple independent heat zones
and internal temperature sensors are easily added.
Our precision plate and component assemblies improve heating
efficiency, allows lead and heater repair, and reduces turnaround time.
The simple machined approach allows economical manufacturing of
both single custom item orders and large volume orders. Companies
desiring to produce their own plate or component heater assemblies
can contact the factory for design assistance and purchase only the
square and rectangular cartridge or cable heaters required.
We manufacture the plate and component heater assemblies to any
desired combination of material, size and configuration. The assemblies
are available in typical thicknesses of 3/8, 1/2″ and 3/4″ and can be
produced in thinner or thicker sections as dictated by application
requirements. The assemblies are normally equipped with square or
rectangular cartridge heaters. Smaller plate assemblies can also be
manufactured to accept cable heaters when required. A variety of lead
options including plugs, electrical boxes, terminals and flexible leads
are available. An assortment of sleeve, wire braid, armor and tubing
style lead protection systems can also be readily implemented
|Our new precision plate and component heater assemblies are designed for a wide range of extrusion,
molding and packaging applications. The rugged, high performance assemblies are providing exceptional
performance in the heating of extrusion profile dies, blow molding manifolds and die heads, wire cross head
dies, extruder barrels and injection molds.
