HF- and µ-wave technology

Investigations on HF and µ-wave heating of the resin are made to develop an electromagnetic heating system for liquid moulding.

The development of electromagnetic energy heating is highly depended on the thermoplastic resin system used. The electromagnetic energy has to be optimised to guarantee a response of the chemical structure of the molecules.

The domestic use of microwaves to heat up food is the most commonly known application of electromagnetic energy. In industry microwaves are used to de-ice bulk materials and mostly also food.

The advantage of using microwaves over traditional heating technologies is that if the right energy response spectrum can be found processing times can be dramatically shortened.

But also other electromagnetic energy sources are of interest.

Basic investigations have been completed.
