Fostoria has engineered and manufactured custom oven equipment for a variety of industries and applications. Our diversity allows us to design the best heating solution for the application. These unique applications start with our state of the art test facility, to verify that the recommended oven design will meet or exceed customer expectations. These applications can often be difficult for other companies, due to the uniqueness of the process, but at Fostoria, solutions for unique applications have been commonplace for decades. Listed below are several examples.
Water Based Coating on Extruded Rubber Seals:
Extruded rubber seals are used in the automotive markets for door, window, trunk and latch seals; which serve to reduce noise and ice built up. The water based coating is applied to the seals for long lasting protection.
Typical production is a continuous process with line speeds from 30 to 80 FPM.
This Fostoria oven employs short wave T-3 quartz lamps for fast response and higher energy intensity, to rapidly cure the coating. The cycle time production can be reduced from minutes to < 30 seconds. Note that this oven was designed to open for ease of maintenance and inspection.
