INFRARED

Infrared speed-up ovens :

CSI develops IR tunnels on demand that enhance existing convection ovens (increased rates, specific cold points, improved temperature curves). The infrared elements can be placed in front of existing ovens, in the oven entry or even in the oven itself. Ventilation for the IR section is totally independent from the oven air. Therefore installing IR section does not change of the quality and the balance of the doped ovens.

Speed-up can be applied to vehicle surfaces or a specific point for precisely-defined radiation, only heating a specific point on the X, Y and Z axes.

Speed-up installations are available in electric or gas versions when conditions permit.

Dual tone infrared ovens :

Some vehicle lines are available in two-tone versions (two different colors applied to the same bodywork). In this case, short infrared is a good alternative as it heats specific points of the applied second paint color. It can also heat only the vehicles that have a second coat if monotone and two-tone versions are applied on the same line.

Similarly than IR speed-up, the infrared elements can be placed upstream or in the entrance of existing ovens, or simply replace them.

Plate preheating systems :

CSI develops and manufactures IR panels of any size on demand for preheating plates and various parts on the sides of production lines. Infrared radiation is ideally suited for rapid heating of vehicle parts.
These panels are controlled by a touch screen panel. Power is regulated by zones for guaranteed temperature (pyrometric measurement).

Pre-gel or curing systems for sealants and vehicles :

CSI designs and implements all pre-gel installations for sealants/waxes on automotive lines. These IR systems can process vehicles step-by-step or continuously. They optimize the temperature curve required for advanced pyrometric regulation and allow for efficient monitoring of production and consumption.

Full panel IR touch-up facilities on rails systems:

CSI designs a full range of Infrared systems for curing in paint booth, from very small areas to full vehicle panels and from mobile paint dryers on wheels to ceiling mounted infrared dryers.
Mounted on electrified rail system that allow movement in all directions, the IR panels can reach any point on a vehicle. Depending on the customer request, IR body shop dryers can be designed for vertical or horizontal touch-ups or designed with the vertical and horizontal infrared panels.
Panel movement is very ergonomic. It can also be automated.
Like the entire line of CSI IR products, IR Full Panels use an optimized pyrometric regulation process.
Finally, we use CNOMO equipment, which is already on the materials lists of most automobile manufacturers.

Infrared touch-up dryers on rail systems :

CSI designs a full range of Infrared systems for curing in paint booth, from very small areas to full vehicle panels and from mobile paint dryers on wheels to ceiling mounted infrared dryers.
The ceiling mounted dryers can be fed by circular rail systems that can accommodate several infrared curing panels.
Mounted on electrified rail system that allow movement in all directions, the Infrared dryer can be adjusted to reach any point on a vehicle.
Panel movement is very ergonomic. Like the entire line of CSI IR products, Infrared dryers use an optimized pyrometric regulation process.
Finally, we use CNOMO equipment, which is already on the materials lists of most automobile manufacturers and industrial body shops.

Infrared touch-up mobile paint dryers :

CSI’s touch-up mobile systems on wheels can be of any size from A5 to door panels. They are robustly constructed and suitable for heavy use. Their design combines ease of use with technical power management to consistently meet the time and temperature objectives of our customers’ products. They are in most of the industrial body shops and are designed to stay for a long time…
Installation of IR cassettes, especially for vehicle interiors, is facilitated by a series of complementary axes. Ergonomics have also been optimized over the years and through customer feedback. We have adjusted handle arrangement, positioning aids and added brakes adapted to extreme positions for the best curing in our customer paint booth.

Quick Spot infrared touch-up systems :

Quick Spot infrared touch-up systems are currently particularly popular due to the possibility of drastically reducing touch-up times and production losses created by removing vehicles from the main production line.
As manufacturers’ approaches are different, CSI has developed a series of infrared cassettes of different dimensions, powers and IR technologies. CSI Quick Spot systems range from multi-purpose cassettes (short and regular) to A4 size.

Infrared heating systems for plastic parts :

Infrared can also be used to heat plastic parts (such as SMC, GMT, etc.) before molding, in order to extract VOCs or any other desired flexibility. In partnership with several leading automotive suppliers, CSI has developed several continuous and stop and go conveyor systems and drawers that allow for controlled and optimized temperature increase.
Production data and confirmation tests are used to develop the equipment. We keep all information confidential.

Ultraviolet

Polymerization / curing for varnishes / adhesives on glass :

Infrared and Ultraviolet technologies are very interesting because they are adaptable and reactive for glue curing and polymerization of varnishes on glass parts. They can be added to lines or robots depending on the use.
For UV treatments in particular, it is important to work with the formulation supplier. Our chemical engineers are available for defining the most suitable solution for the targeted product or process.
