Orthodontics Company Purchases Convection Oven
Thermal Product Solutions (TPS) shipped a Blue M convection oven to a company in the orthodontics industry. The oven, which has a work chamber measuring 48 inches wide x 24 inches deep x 36 inches high, will be used for a metal-injection-molding debind process at temperatures of 390°F (199°C) and 1050°F (566°C). Parts will be placed on ceramic trays before being run through the debind cycle, which usually lasts 14 to 16 hours. The oven has a powered exhaust with VFD for pulling out non-hazardous fumes coming from the products during the debinding process. The VFD will enable the company to adjust the exhaust motor speed to reduce or increase the exhaust flow rate.
