In order to test different materials and to offer the best solution according to customer’s specification, Helios Quartz established a specialized Infrared Technical Center equipped with a cutting-edge Testing Machine capable of testing the behaviour of all kind of materials subjected to infrared radiation.
The Helios Quartz Testing Machine is capable of winding and unwinding of most materials on a spool. Line speeds up to 30m/min are possible to test materials such as plastic films and Metal coils and how they react to IR Heating.
Other Miscellaneous materials such as Leather or Textiles, may be used on our conveyor as an alternative. Conveyor line speeds may go up to 25m/min.
To fully simulate the processing application for our customers, the machine may operate in a dynamic or static operating mode.
The machine offers 3 different heating sections which may be adjusted according to the distance required between the IR Lamps and the material.
Detailed and accurate information are provided by the machine software through a graphic that shows the temperature distribution on the product; the temperature can be measured through up to 8 thermocouples or through an infrared thermometer.
Helios Quartz specialists at the Infrared Technical Center are able to provide the customers with accurate information about:
- the difference and the benefits of IR technology compared to traditional heating systems;
- the most suitable wavelength for the specific material;
- how the IR radiation affects the material;
- how the IR system can be adjusted in the existing line;
- how IR technology optimizes production efficiency.
