Model TC243 - TC245

Automated Infrared Curing System

Sustainability Benefits: The TruCure provides huge benefits in regards to sustainability. Cycle-time and energy consumption are reduced significantly. TruCure provides 4 Minute Final Cure cycle-times! This is a reduction of up to 60% verse Batch Ovens and 80% verse Tunnel Oven. With the Stand-By Mode Feature, energy consumption is greatly reduced. If there are no panels to be cured, the system automatically goes into Stand-By Mode and conserves on energy. In addition, the cost to cure per panel is reduced by 85%!   

                                      

Cures Legend Inks Simultaneously: Solder Mask and Legend Ink can be cured together at the same time! The TruCure can be used to cure any Thermal Inks: Legend Ink, Via Hole Fill, and Peelable Solder Mask.           

Smaller footprint than a Tunnel Oven

 

Can be used in-line with Developing Process

 

ACS ‘‘Smart Panels’’ patent pending

Designed to measure the temperature of the PCB and automatically make the necessary changes, in addition to maintaining the required curing temperature.

 

STAND-BY MODE FEATURE
System automatically senses when there are no PCBs on the conveyor and powers down they IR panels to a low setting.  However, as a PCB re-enters, IR panels will automatically return to normal settings.

 

NEGATIVE PRESSURE CURING CHAMBER

Heat and fumes will not exit the Curing Chamber, keeping the work area safe and comfortable.        

 

OPERATIONS PARAMETER DISPLAY
Touch Screen Panel: Adjustments for the conveyor speed and power settings for cure zones are made via touch screen. In addition, the touch screen displays the actual speed of the conveyor, power settings and the actual temperature of the PCBs being cured.

CONVEYOR

Constructed of 304 stainless steel. Conveyor is driven by DC motor and is adjustable, running between 0 to 6 FPM.

INFRARED QUARTZ LAMPS
The style lamps used in this system are very efficient. The total time that it takes for a PCB to travel through the IR system is only 4 minutes! Warm-up time of the system is less the 5 minutes!

 

LAMP HOUSING
Top and bottom Lamp Housing are constructed of 304 stainless steel and can be easily accessed via service doors. The top and bottom Housings are mounted on a drawer track system and can be pulled out for easy access. If Housings need to be taken out of machine,  all electrical is mounted with quick disconnects and there are only 4 bolts per Housing.

IR THERMOMETER

IR thermometers read the actual temperature of the PCB being cured.


COOL-DOWN ZONE
The cool-down zone utilizes forced air panels located above and below the conveyor.
