How it works

Unique melting grid design

Thanks to the special melting grid, manufactured on an automatic Tig / plasma welding bench, the product to be melted is constantly refreshed. In this way the temperature of the grid can be raised higher than on conventional melting units, without damaging (burning) delicate products. Due to the high heated surface, a high melting capacity is achieved on a minimal surface.

Customize to your wishes

We understand that a standard melting unit might not meet your wishes. That is why our melting trays can be equipped with a large number of options, so that we can be sure that the melting unit fits best with your product and process. As an example, we can include an extra melting plate in the design to guarantee fully melted product for difficult products. In addition, the collection container for molten product can also be equipped with a heating jacket.
