Surface Heaters

We develop and manufacture innovative custom surface heater solutions for clients who want to improve their product’s performance, reliability, and cost. By learning about your application we can develop heaters that will be optimal for it. We work with Silicone Rubber, Polyimide (Kapton), and Mica. Our cost-effective custom heater solutions are tailored to deliver maximum advantages for each specific application.

We’ve helped to improve sealing bars, heat transfer presses, food steaming cabinets, and more. With over 2,000 unique designs we’ve probably worked on something similar to your application.
