A special unit for Pre-Preg production
The new standard in composite processing
Like the Witzel PO1200, the PO1800 convection oven has been developed for the special needs of Pre-Preg processing in the O&P field. Due to the extended internal 70” height, this unit offers more space for processing larger molds. The heating cavity is equipped with a standard 4x vacuum connector inside as well as a an external water separator placed at the right side of the housing.
- Microprocessor based control with PID feature, optimized for Pre-Preg processing
- User friendly control interface with touch-panel
- Timer- and Ramp-feature for programming individual heating graphs
- Mold/Material-sensor to control the unit by material temperature
- Energy-saving 3-zone sections to reduce inside dimensions of the heating cabinet for small molds
- Standard 4x vacuum-connector with external water-separator
During development special attention has been focused on the control that manages the heating process. The “Heart“ of the system is the microprocessor based central control unit with its proprietary Witzel software and user interface.
The integrated touch-panel and its interactive menu control allows an intuitive operation of the multiple functions. The entire process it can be monitored and directly controlled through the use of an external temperature sensor (included). Simply place the thin-wire sensor at the edge of the Pre-Preg material, between the layers and plugged into the front panel of the control unit. Thus the entire heating process is controlled by the exact core temperature of the material.
Further an integrated Timer- and Ramp-feature allows to program and store individual heating graphs. This provides the user a visual representation of the entire heating process with an easy-to-understand graph. Variances may be monitored by a screen entered from the main menu.
- Energy-saving: Three independent zones
- Processing of normal Thermoplastics possible as well.
