Thermcraft is a key provider of thermal systems, products and accessories. The insulating materials supplied by Thermcraft can be formed into any bespoke shapes, including sleeves, cylinders, blocks, and boards (Figure 1). With extensive processing capabilities, the company can provide products with minute details and tight tolerances.
Figure 1. Thermcraft’s insulating material can be formed into almost any custom shape.
Thermcraft is capable of providing an entire insulation system or subsystem that is readily installable. In addition, the company assembles large shapes that are difficult to be machined or formed into a single component. It installs the insulation shapes into customers’ systems or equipment based upon request.
CNC Machined Shapes
Thermcraft fabricates large, intricate, and accurate insulation shapes at its high-production CNC controlled machining center. Zero tooling investment and reduced lead times are the advantages of the machining center, which is ideal for small production runs, prototypes, single pieces and applications demanding tight tolerances.
High Temperature Capability
Different types of insulation are provided by Thermcraft for process temperatures up to 1700°C (3092°F).
It is possible to install components, such as hardware and heating elements prior to or subsequent to the forming or machining operations.
Surface Treating and Coloring
The rigidity and erosion resistance of insulation shapes can be improved through surface treatment. It is also possible to incorporate custom coloring during the molding process.
Custom Vacuum Formed Products
Vacuum forming of products into a range of insulating shapes is possible with custom tooling for high volume applications. This a cost-effective approach, shortening machining time and lowering material waste.
Fibercraft™ insulation materials exhibit minimal thermal energy storage and conductivity, which make it an outstanding energy saver. Rapid thermal cycling is possible with these materials as they are low in mass and have high thermal shock resistance and resistance to cracking.
