MANUFACTURING PROCESS AND BENEFITS:
2DHeat Limited will supply the partially oxidised metal oxide powder in the correct chemical & physical form for the application in question. Ideally, the OEM licensee will then apply these ‘in-house’, using the straight forward, automated flame-spray process that 2DHeat will develop and assist the licensee in establishing. This will deliver the final product (to an accuracy of +/- 2.5% in power rating), ready for incorporation directly into the licensee’s assembly process. This arrangement should generate the highest economic benefits to the licensee (see Production Benefits section, below). Alternatively, 2DHeat would assist an OEM to establish manufacture at a suitable third-party contract manufacturer/ licensee, but this arrangement would produce lower economic benefits to an OEM than would ‘in-house’ production.
This vastly simplified process results in significant economic and operational benefits for our licensees.
This contrasts sharply with the (typically) 27+ stage process to produce conventional coiled wire elements, involving 7 different industry sectors.
Our novel elements are applied directly to the article to be heated using a short, “straight-through” process.
