The gyrotron heats glass rapidly with precise and controllable temperature distribution by scanning the microwave millimeter-wave beam over glass sheet with different speeds and powers. Gyrotron shaping provides complex geometries, lower distortions, and no-gap doubled bending. Overall, the use of the gyrotron dramatically increases heating efficiency and reduces cycle time, energy usage, footprint, tooling, and labor requirements.
Gyrotron Technology, Inc. (GTI) is an industrial technologies company that develops heat-treatment processes for glass, ceramics, polymers, etc. using a revolutionary heat source: a high frequency microwave beam. GTI is committed to providing its customers with the best, most cost-effective, and energy efficient thermal process heating solutions. A gyrotron beam is a high-powered concentrated electromagnetic energy source. It can be targeted with precision to heat an area, while leaving the surrounding area cool.
