Fakuma 2021: Ushio IR team declares “We Will Heat You Up!”

Ushio’s Infrared (IR) department is preparing to make the journey to Friedrichshafen, Germany for the 27th Fakuma international trade fair. The much-anticipated plastics processing event takes place from 12–16 October 2021. Led by Sales Director for IR & UV, Thomas Haider, Ushio will be turning up the heat on the competition with an extensive collection of infrared lamps.

The main offerings from Ushio, located at booth A2-2110, will include heat sources for drying systems, surface pre-treatment, heating elements, rapid heat treatment, and surface finishing technologies. In addition to IR solutions for blow moulding, extrusion technology, thermoforming and 3D printing, the industry highlight will also focus above all on the digital transformation and sustainable plastics processing with efficient production.

With more than 1,900 exhibitors in attendance, Fakuma 2021 is the leading technical event for industrial plastics processing

Meet Ushio’s top IR, conventional UV, excimer, and UV LED experts, at booth A2-2110. This year’s hot topics are:

Twin Tube IR Lamps – Two filament tubes, fused together, achieve new levels of durability and twice the performance in small spaces. Ushio’s famous customizations include integrated reflectors, universal burning position, and waterproofing. For more information on Twin Tube IR Lamps, download our latest brochure here.

Reflectors for Pin Lamps – A modular alternative to expensive, custom-built, bent IR lamps, our reflectors improve system efficiency and power density. With a choice of spot or beam profiles, any shape, pattern, or layout can be made to uniformly focus IR heat exactly where and when you need it. For more information on IR Pin Lamps and Reflectors, download our latest brochures here.

EmitFit – a quick-release ceramic mounting system for swift IR lamp exchange and reduced production down-time. The new design reduces the fitting size to maximise the area devoted to IR irradiation. For more information on EmitFit, download our latest brochure here.

IR Application Lab – Ushio offers ready-made and customized solutions, but we also invite clients to test out their manufacturing ideas at our in-house research lab. Experiment with applications including: Blow moulding, 3D printing, automotive, aviation, Coatings, fibre placement, industrial ovens, IR welding, lamination, thermoforming, and many more! Take a tour of the Infrared Application Lab in this video:

Ushio’s IR Application Lab project is an opportunity to improve existing designs, optimise existing processes, and thoroughly analyse infrared performance under laboratory testing conditions. As part of the IR Application Laboratory package, Ushio’s clients benefit from the expert guidance and consultation of a dedicated technical team who possess an unrivalled knowledge of IR heating radiation and IR process technology.

As a platform for collaboration, joint investigation, and analysis of IR processes, the IR Lab simulates various setups that allow the reproduction of production environments. This allows the realisation of extensive experiments that would otherwise be difficult or costly to carry out at the client’s own production site.
