Molded-To-Shape® Heaters form Elmwood Sensors Conform to Complex 3-Dimensional Surfaces
Pawtucket, Rhode Island -Molded-To-Shape® heaters from Elmwood Sensors, an Invensys Sensor Systems company, provide efficient, even heat distribution for complex, large surface areas. Elmwood Molded-to-Shape® heaters are custom designed for each application, then formed, molded or curved to conform closely around curved cylindrical surfaces and complex 3-dimensional shapes.
Molded-to-Shape heaters are commonly used to prolong battery life in cold environments. Other applications include aerospace electronics, aircraft galley equipment, copy machines, medical instrumentation, and thermal printers, among others. They are designed to maintain consistent, low element temperatures, assuring long heater life.
Elmwood Sensors Molded-To-Shape® heaters are designed to custom configurations and thermal specifications, with single and multi-layer etched or wire wound circuits. Single, multiple and variable watt densities can be designed into a single heater to suit specific application needs. A variety of dielectric substrate materials are available, including silicone, polyimide, neoprene and polyester.
Elmwood Sensors also offers value-added capabilities such as temperature control components and assembly to provide a complete heater solution. Control method needs vary depending upon application, location and sensitivity requirements.
