Davron Technologies, Inc. designed and manufactured the DTI-1220, an electrically heated infrared indexing conveyor oven that preheats composite material blanks, prior to press forming, for a Tier 1 automotive supplier. Prior to commissioning the DTI-1220, the customer preheated the product in a conveyor oven that did not allow them to run blanks of multiple sizes. The DTI-1220 indexing conveyor oven enables Davron's customer to process their largest part or two smaller parts in the same oven in as little as 45 seconds.

The DTI-1220 features one or two heated positions inside the oven chamber, depending on the product size. The heating system consists of two sets of infrared panels, one above and one below the product. The IR panels are arranged in multiple individual zones of control (a total of 24) to allow for variation of heating across the entire surface of the product. The maximum operating temperature of the system is 650�'�C (1202�'�F). The DTI-1220 features PLC control and all motion functions are controlled by servo for accuracy and speed. The overall system includes two load positions on the entrance end of the oven, two positions in the heated chamber, and one unload position on the exit end of the oven.

The useable dimensions of the DTI-1220 are 8'4" wide x 25'2" long with a heated chamber length of 9'0". The interior of the oven is made out of 16-gauge aluminized steel backed by six inches of eight-pound density mineral wool insulation. The exterior is constructed of 16-gauge carbon steel backed by a structural steel frame and finished with high-temperature paint. The oven includes two drawers that house the IR heater banks. These drawers slide out of the oven to allow access to the IR panels for maintenance. Also included are two access doors on the side opposite the heater drawers, which provide access to the heated chamber.

Davron designed the DTI-1220 indexing conveyor oven based on three criteria provided by the customer: the production rate, the product size, and the operating temperature. Once the indexing conveyor oven was manufactured, Davron did extensive acceptance testing and training with the customer at Davron headquarters in Chattanooga, Tenn., prior to shipment. The oven was then prepared and packaged for shipment.
