Automation became a norm in the industry to achieve various objectives in mass production, especially in the automotive parts industry. Automation also presents an opportunity to relieve workers from repetitive, hazardous, and un-ergonomic labour.
The general benefits of automation hold good for heat processes as well and have been incorporated in heating solutions. At the same time there are many other concepts specific to heat processes where automation adds real value.
With stringent demands on manufacturers for quality and productivity and the high cost of skilled manpower, there is a need for equipment which “act” on their own.
Robotics reduces manual labor and errors / Automated handling of components improves operator efficiency & productivity / Automation helps operator safety
Eliminates errors in manual handling. Improves repeatability and reduces rejections. Precise placement of components helps in the perfect heating process.

Litel “intelligent” IR heating solutions
With stringent demands on manufacturing facilities for quality and productivity and the high cost of skilled manpower, there is a need for heating equipment which “act” on their own. To cater to this need, all new generation ovens/dryers from Litel are PLC-controlled. PLCs are used to combine process control functions as well as logic functions and diagnostic features.
