International Thermal Systems (ITS, Milwaukee, Wisc., U.S.) offers a complete out-of-autoclave curing system that includes a TruTempCC batch oven, integrated multi-port vacuum system and process controller. The TruTempCC system reportedly maintains tight temperature uniformity at +/-5% F or better in ITS’s custom designed ovens.
ITS’s state-of-the-art design incorporates multi-part thermocouple and vacuum systems that meet NADCAP, AS9100 and AMS2750E. ITS can provide a solution as simple as a curing oven with vacuum headers and ports, or it can provide a complete out-of-autoclave system. The ITS engineers are airflow design experts and can incorporate combination airflow or the company’s proprietary Three5 Air Flow technology into the ovens.
ITS also manufactures industrial furnaces over 1,000°F and industrial parts washers for many applications. ITS has manufacturing facilities in Milwaukee, WI and Shanghai, China and ships and installs equipment globally.
