 Wisconsin Oven Corp. (East Troy, WI, US) is featuring its electrically heated, gas-fired and indirect gas-fired composites curing batch ovens. Options commonly used for composites curing ovens include data acquisition instruments, vacuum piping, pumps and transducers. The ovens are said to provide:

  • Quicker 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.

    Designers envision aircraft components that do more than bear structural loads, but must first confront great complexities to actualize greater functional efficiency.

  • Composites recycling becomes a necessity

    Boeing and Airbus each is generating as much as a 1 million lb of cured and uncured carbon fiber prepreg waste each year from 787 and A350 XWB production. If you include the entire supply chain for these planes, the total is closer to 4 million lb/year. And with the automotive industry poised to consume (and waste) more carbon fiber than ever, recycling of composite materials has become an absolute necessity. The technology is there, but the markets are not. Yet.
