CUSTOM SPLICING OVEN FOR CARBON FIBER MANUFACTURING
Despatch has modified its high performance LAC benchtop industrial oven to create a custom splicing oven for carbon fiber production. Carbon fiber manufacturers can use the oven to splice fiber strands together to keep fiber running continuously through the production line.
Despatch made several modifications to the base LAC oven to create the custom splicing oven. Slots were added to the back of the oven with silicon curtains that seal around the product and reduce heat loss. Angled ledges around the door provide a stable place to set custom interior shelves. The oven has increased heater capacity to ramp up to temperature faster and efficiently maintain the set temperature. The addition of an electronic cooling fan filter protects the electrical panel from dust and debris. Despatch also equipped the modified LAC with an easy-to-use, digital single set-point temperature control and high limit.
