Wisconsin Oven Corporation announced the shipment of four (4) electrically heated enhanced duty walk-in ovens to an automotive parts manufacturer. These industrial ovens will be used for aging aluminum parts.

The walk-in ovens have a maximum operating temperature of 260°C (500°F) and work chamber dimensions of 6’0” W x 15’0” L x 6’0” H. Guaranteed temperature uniformity of +/- 10°F at 200°C (392°F) was documented with a standard nine (9) point profile test in an empty chamber under static operating conditions.

The aging ovens are constructed with tongue and groove panel assemblies that feature Wisconsin Oven’s patented high efficiency panel seams which provide 25% better insulating efficiency. The ovens are designed with horizontal airflow to maximize heat up rates and temperature uniformity of the product. Each of the industrial ovens feature bi-parting, side hinged, horizontal swing doors at both ends for loading and unloading of the product.

“Here at Wisconsin Oven we understand that each of our customers have specific requirements for their application which is why we work with them to design an equipment solution that provides the optimal part result. This is the second order we have shipped to this customer and we take pride in the fact that they have joined our growing list of repeat customers.”
