VHM Hephaistos Microwave Oven Bring Curing Homogeneity

Microwave technology offers a promising solution for efficient and homogeneous curing of composite materials. It enables rapid volumetric heating, resulting in shorter process times and lower energy consumption compared to conventional ovens. By strategically placing microwave absorbing materials within the composite layup, the temperature distribution can be controlled to achieve uniform curing. Industrial microwave systems with multiple magnetrons and infrared monitoring allow for closed-loop control and process optimization. This technology addresses a key challenge in adopting microwave curing for industrial-scale composite manufacturing.
