AX-HK-800 Vertical Curing Oven

Vertical format curing ovens from AX Equipment help reducing floor space, improving curing process consistency, increasing productivity and reducing the costs. AX Equipment’s ovens are extremely space-saving. In comparison to horizontal continuous flow ovens, they only use the available room height. The savings in production area compared to the horizontal variants can be enormous.

The vertical oven, with its stable curing temperature, improves the process consistency and subsequently the quality of the products cured. It also speeds up the production time and simplifies the production compared to curing batch ovens.

In-line setting increases productivity by allowing to eliminate manual labour needed to load and unload batch ovens. Constant opening the doors adds to the unwanted variation of the temperature.

Vertical format oven requires very little space as compared to the batch and horizontal flow ovens.
