Thermal processing solutions for accuracy and efficiency

Industrial thermal processes represent unique requirements. Every application demands exacting control, reliability and consistency. Advanced Energy thermal processing solutions stand up to the harsh conditions of industrial manufacturing with extraordinary accuracy and efficiency. Finer temperature measurement and control mean that you:

  • Improve product quality, yield, and throughput
  • Achieve the highest level of process repeatability
  • Reduce energy costs

Measurement Accuracy and Reliability for Critical Applications

Accuracy in industrial applications starts with the pyrometer you specify. Process uniformity, product quality, and throughput in temperature-critical applications are dependent on high measurement accuracy, repeatability, and reliability. The Onyx series of measurement solutions combines these key attributes with Advanced Energy’s deep applications expertise in four models to match your exacting requirements. Specific applications include:

  • Quartz and sapphire – growth and annealing
  • Steel – forging, finishing, and vessel monitoring
  • Thin-film solar – glass and metals
  • Non-ferrous metals – casing, forging, and extrusion
  • Carbon fiber – production and annealing
  • Technical ceramics – heat-treatment and sintering

Our Onyx-multi-channel versions afford temperature-only or active-emissivity configurations with multi-channel temperature measurement and temperature plus active emissivity options. The single-channel line provides single, or two-color ratio measurement options, integrated laser alignment, and fieldbus communication options.

Whatever your demanding accuracy and repeatability requirements, Advanced Energy’s industrial temperature measurement products provide superior process consistency, and accurate, precise, reliable measurement, regardless of process conditions or changing substrate emissivity.

Precise and Exacting Control for Temperature Regulation

Precision temperature regulation starts with SCR power controllers that can substantially reduce operating costs and increase process control. Advanced Energy’s Thyro-Family SCR power controllers ensure high product quality and reproducibility in applications ranging from simple to complex. Their precision and reliability is proven for any industrial manufacturing process requiring exacting material melting, heating, drying, or forming.

Our solutions provide simple mounting, quick commissioning, and easy operation, and can be integrated easily into a wide range of applications. In addition, this product line offers comprehensive connectivity and performance options enabling optimization and savings for process control, process documentation, installation and commissioning, and system availability.

Some of the numerous applications include:

  • Industrial furnaces
  • Automotive
  • Chemical and oil
  • Coatings
  • Crystal growing
  • Glass manufacturing
  • IR drying
  • Machine building
  • Packaging
  • Painting machines and printers
  • Semiconductor

Advanced Energy has devoted more than three decades to perfecting control technologies to customers across a broad range of industries. The AE team, deployed throughout North America, Europe, and Asia, provides technical expertise and responsive and agile solutions for industrial manufacturing.
