Spectral Analysis

Ceramicx has been working with the University of Duisburg in Essen Germany for a number of years. The data produced has allowed Ceramicx to evolve and develop our product further as well as making more information available to help customers make a better decision when applying infrared heaters and ceramic heaters to high-tech applications.

Case Studies

Ceramicx Element Efficiency Helps Chinese Thermoformers Become Industry Leaders

A leading packaging material manufacturer has chosen a series of Ceramicx 1,000W FQE full quartz infrared heating elements to increase production on a slow and inefficient system. These long wave elements now provide a faster, more consistent, and more efficient process in the heat-curing of aluminium-coated lining paper and anti-counterfeit packaging film.
