Composite Curing Ovens
Composite Curing Ovens are used to cure high strength, low weight carbon composite materials. Carbon fiber is light, yet stronger than steel and is used to manufacture aerospace, automotive, wind power and many other industry parts. SINOMAC composite curing ovens are an excellent solution to processing composites parts with an out-of-autoclave solution.
Complete Composite Curing System
Thermal curing is a critical step in manufacturing quality composite materials. Traditionally, most composite parts required autoclaves for proper curing. Today, low cost out-of-autoclave curing of aerospace-grade composite parts is possible using a vacuum bagging system with a walk-in batch oven. The process is precisely controlled and monitored to ensure void-free composite parts.
SINOMAC provides complete composite curing systems that include a custom configured oven, integrated multi-port vacuum system, and excellent control system with our TPC software. The system meets AMS2750, BAC5621, NADCAP and AS9100 requirements.
Composite Curing Oven Technology
The anchor of the SINOMAC composite curing system is an oven that delivers exceptional temperature uniformity for perfectly cured parts. It uses horizontal and combination recirculating airflow to ensure uniform temperatures throughout the oven. A high-volume fan circulates air through louvered, aluminized steel walls to create a constant horizontal airflow across all sections of the oven.
