CAM X 2018 13 WEDNESDAY | October 17, 2018 Composite curing batch ovens offered in electric, gas, indirect gas Wisconsin Oven Corp. (East Troy, WI, US) is featuring its elec- trically heated, gas-fired and indirect gas-fired composites curing batch ovens. Options commonly used for compos- ites curing ovens include data acquisition instruments, vacuum piping, pumps and transducers. The ovens are said to provide: • Quick heating rates and recovery times: Each oven features a high-pressure recirculation blower, which includes fully enclosed and pressurized supply ducts. The equipment is designed for combination airflow arrangement, which ensures uniform heat distribution throughout the work chamber, even with varying loads. • Consistent temperature certification: Composites curing ovens are typically guaranteed and certified for ±10° at 350°F temperature uniformity. Tighter tolerances and certification at other temperatures are available. Equipment is tested prior to shipment and must pass an extensive quality inspection prior to shipment. • Energy efficiency: The composite curing batch ovens are also available with an optional E-Pack Oven upgrade that includes thicker wall panels and higher efficiency motors. Wisconsin Oven Corp., Booth AA39 High-temp, low-CTE tooling board withstands up to 480°F General Plastics (Tacoma, WA, US) is featuring its new high-temperature, low-CTE LAST-A-FOAM FR-4800 tooling board. FR-4800 withstands peak temperatures up to 480°F/249°C and continuous use up to 400°F/204°C. It reportedly will not warp or twist and remains dimensionally predictable, even at elevated temperatures. With a CTE that is similar to aluminum and a density that is only a third of it, the FR-4800 is said to be a strong alternative to metallic tooling. General Plastics, Booth AA32 NEW TECHNOLOGY
