Homogeneous, precise and reproducible microwave heating
To date, the industrialization of microwave processes offered only few options for affecting heating processes in order to achieve a targeted temperature distribution and reproducible results. Based on precise and quickly controllable semi-conductor generators, it is now possible to optimize the heating process in a targeted manner – without mechanically mobile components or extensive applicator modifications. With the TruHeat MW Series, the power can now be coupled to the exact resonance frequency of the applicator very efficiently which greatly increases the coupled power. For the first time, even complex heating processes of materials such as different ceramics, plastics or glass can be realized with extremely low dielectric losses.
Even in the event of a mismatch (total reflection), the generators can be permanently operated thanks to the circulators integrated as standard.
Different field distributions and heating patterns can be combined by quickly switching over the frequency in order to achieve a targeted temperature distribution.
Different generators can be operated and pulsed phase-synchronously in multi-antenna systems. By varying the phase coherence between the individual generators, a significant field / temperature homogenization can be achieved.
Thanks to the pulsability of the generator, the plasma is controlled with extreme precision in the nanosecond range, so that the plasma temperature can be optimally set and it is possible to generate a non-thermal plasma.
You can control the machine very quickly within a millisecond with the digital EtherCat interface. This enables precise heating and very exact processing results.
Existing and/or disused systems can simply be converted and put back into operation with significant technical innovations. This means that the profitability can be increased with a one-off investment, as the system will then run without interruptions.
The generators of the TruHeat MW Series achieve approximately twenty times more operating hours than conventional magnetrons.
Imitation leather coating
Adhesive is doped with absorber before application in order to absorb adhesive layers primarily on the microwaves. Meanwhile, the imitation leather remains cold. In addition, a significant improvement of the temperature distribution throughout the entire adhesive layer can be achieved with the TruHeat MW Series 1000 / 3000. This enables a considerable improvement in quality.
Fruit dried with microwave vacuum drying
It is easy to manufacture high-quality dried fruit with microwave drying without mobile components. Thanks to targeted modulation of the microwave, it is possible to apply the energy homogeneously to the material to be dried, coordinating the energy application with the drying procedure.
3D microwave printer for continuous fiber-reinforced polymers
Continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composite materials (CFRTP) can be processed at high speeds with microwaves. TRUMPF generators are used as their output power can be regulated externally in real time. This is particularly relevant for curves as the pressure speed changes.
Efficient, non-contact heating of plastic foils
Thanks to the high frequency selectivity of our generators and the simple frequency tuneability, efficient heating of low-loss samples (for example, plastic foils for the packaging industry) can be achieved.
