We are a leading designer and manufacturer of high quality industrial ovens. Our industrial ovens can be developed to any size and are able to operate in various temperatures. So no matter what the intended use – be it for automotive parts, aircraft components or heavy duty construction equipment, we can help.
Industrial Ovens – Our Product Range
We offer several products and processes that range from heat treatment, to the paint curing of all metal and plastic substrates. Our full range includes:
Every oven that we develop is completed in-house and consists of a bespoke design. This ensures that we can manufacture ovens to your precise requirements. The equipment that we supply can fully integrate with your other plant and equipment if needed.
Heating options are included across the range – all with bespoke control systems and energy saving designs.
Catalytic Infra-red Ovens
IR Drying of paints – with Sunkiss Matherm. As part of our range, we supply catalytic infra-red ovens.
Since the 1950’s, Sunkiss Matherm of France has used catalytic heated panels to heat large open areas, utilising the organic properties of catalytic combustion. This progressed into the curing of paints, dyes, inks and other organic products which are heated to accelerate the cure time.
One principal advantage of using these ovens is the reduction in ‘flash off’ time. Normally, ‘flash off’ is used on wet paint and it prevents the encapsulation of solvents beneath the surface of the paint. As they pop out during the curing process, it creates surface defects.
Catalytic IR has no such problem with solvents. Instead, it drives them out during the curing process. This then became the trademark for the original thermoreactor ovens.
Unitech Machinery is the UK & Ireland integrator for thermoreactor catalytic infra-red ovens. We design the whole project, with the thermoreactors coming in from France.
We have worked with Sunkiss Matherm on projects such as Leyland Trucks, the biggest thermoreactor oven in Europe.
