Bilateral beaming infrared emitter

Bilateral beaming infrared emitterInfrared emitter

New contour-tracking infrared emitter with a high energy efficiency. There are several advantages:
– low weight (low mass inertia, low acceleration forces of the machine necessary)
– low thermal inertia (sensitive responding behaviour and an precise control)
– little installation space / slimline design
– no smoke formation when heating carbon-black filled plastics
– short changeover time

– slimline design
– low mass
– robust construction

With the new developed emitter in the short- and medium waved radiation spectrum there are a number of technological advantages. The construction of the emitter enables the bilateral radiation yield. The emitter only needs a very little installation space and his tare weight is very low in comparison to other emitters. This, in turn, gives benefits in terms of the dynamic and the availability of the system.
