The DTI-1084 Custom Contact Preheat System is a thermoforming oven used in the manufacturing of automotive interior components. The system includes 2 multi zone heated platens. Each platen (top and bottom) has 4 zones of individual temperature control. This allows control of heating across the entire area of the product. The contact heater pressing force is 2 tons and the press closes to hard stops to control product thickness.

Product is shuttled in and out of the contact heating press on the lower platen. The entire lower platen assembly moves from the load position to the preheat press position and to the unload position. Product blanks are manually loaded and unloaded. At the time the heated blank is unloaded the lower platen traverses to the loading position for the next material blank to be loaded.

Davron exists to be the industry leader in non-standard products engineered to meet the customer's need and unique process.
