Used in plastics processing, food warming, semiconductor manufacturing and other industries, Cast-In Thermal Components are available in aluminum and bronze alloys and are highly customizable.
Complex Geometric Thermal Components
These Cast-In Heaters are designed completely customer specifications. Utilizing 3-D and CAD/CAM solid modeling technology, our team of engineers will design for manufacturing the Cast-In Heater for your application.
Cast-In Cross Head Die Heaters
Extrusion Cross Head and related extrusion dies present extremely challenging operating parameters to most conventional heating elements. ?For these applications, Cast-In Aluminum or Bronze heaters are recommended to substantially improve heater life expectancy and performance.
L-Shaped Cast-In Heaters
The “L” Shaped Cast-In Heaters are typically used on square and rectangular twin screw extruder barrels in compounding and plastic resin manufacturing applications. Due to high shear rates, which are common in this process, extreme operating temperatures and high watt densities are frequently encountered. For these reasons Tempco manufactures “L” shaped heaters in bronze or brass alloys, which are capable of withstanding high temperatures at higher watt densities.
Cast-In Platen Die Heaters
Typically, plastic die applications are highly temperature sensitive and require extreme heater uniformity and reliability. ?Tempco Cast-In Platen Heaters are widely accepted as the industry standard for heating critical, temperature-sensitive plastics processing downstream equipment.
Cast-In Ring Heaters
Tempco Cast-In Ring Heaters provide an excellent means of applying extremely uniform heat to limited access application areas. Cast-In Ring Heaters are frequently used in Blown Film Die, Extrusion Die, Screen Changer and Extruder Barrel Adapter applications where long life and minimal maintenance concerns are prevalent.
Cast-In Semiconductor Manufacturing Heaters
We supply the semiconductor manufacturing industry with thermal platens for applications such as Wave Solder and Reflow Surface Mount Equipment and Wafer Processing.
These highly engineered heating and cooling system offer a very efficient means to heat and cool the barrels of plastic extruders. They provide cooling efficiencies equal to or better than conventional liquid cooled cast-in aluminum band heaters.
