Ceramicx is a worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of Infrared heating systems for composites processing. Established in 1992, Ceramicx manufactures all three types of IR emitter (short, medium and long wave) in-house to world-class standards, exporting to over 62 countries worldwide.
The company’s hardware is used in the design and build of its customised IR heating systems for bespoke customer needs. These systems can be controlled to high tolerances and employed in a variety of sectors. Aerospace and automotive work lead the Ceramicx machine-build for composites processing, with defence and marine applications also high in the mix.
Ceramicx infrared heat research will also be on show at Advanced Engineering UK 2017: The company is able, via its Herschel test instrument – to empirically test and map (in 3D space) the effects of IR heat radiation on a variety of composite materials. In this way, Ceramicx can work with clients at the outset to achieve a predictable optimum balance of material and heat source, before upscaling for minimum processing cost.
