Products > Pad Print Dryers >


Designed for the Pad-Printing industry, the DP1076 conveyor dryer provides excellent curing or drying of pad printing inks and two-part epoxy ink with hardeners. The combination of infrared radiant heat and air passing through the panel onto the parts minimizes production times, and accelerates ink drying. Pad printed parts can be easily handled after exiting the heating chamber.

Please contact us Exterior finish is powder coated high gloss white. Perfect to process medical devices or for heat shrinking.

Infrared and Hot Air Process Drying Tunnel

When products require higher infrared temperature the DP2076 infrared and hot air process drying tunnel has the same dimensions & features as DP-1076 but configured differently, and available in 220 volts. The unit has a stainless steel conveyor deck with Teflon fiberglass conveyor belt has height adjustment from 31" to 44" on 3.0 casters. The heating tunnel has two 3600 watts, 6" x 24" infrared heaters, and is controlled by a digital microprocessor control with a thermal couple feedback for accurate temperature control.100 CFM of hot air circulation for even heat distribution. The in-feed is 28 inches and out-feed is 20.

Optional: Stainless steel wire belts can be purchased for any dryer.

Plasma, Corona Flame Treating Conveyors

Ranar manufactures flame-treating conveyors for the pad printing and industrial applications. Corona or plasma flame treating of the plastic surface is needed so inks will adhere properly. Belt speeds up to 120 feet per minute, and stainless steel wire mesh belt, powered exhaust, and perforated steel flame cage are standard. Flame treaters can be provided at an additional cost.

We can manufacture custom conveyor dryers to meet any heating, curing application.
