The DTI-1214 Infrared Shuttle Oven is a specialized thermoforming oven system preheats automotive textile products prior to press forming. This oven system utilizes one manual product shuttle.

The oven includes one heating position with electric infrared heater panels located above and below the product. Each heater bank includes nine separate infrared heater panels. Each infrared heater panel is controlled separately to provide nine zones of control both above and below the product. There are a total of eighteen individual zones of control for the system. This provides multiple variations of heating across the entire surface of the product blank. Product blanks are manually loaded onto the shuttle table. The operator pushes the shuttle into the heated chamber and the product blank dwells in the heated chamber for the desired cycle time. Once the product blank is pre heated the operator removes the shuttle from the heated chamber and manually unloads the heated product blank into the forming press. Cycle time varies based on the product specifications.

The infrared system is in a drawer arrangement. In the event maintenance or inspection is required the infrared drawers can be pulled out of the oven location. The drawers travel is perpendicular to the direction of the conveyor travel through the oven. This system allows maintenance access to the area above and below the heaters for ease of maintenance.
