Cirrus Research Helps Ilmor Engineering Overcome Noise Issues

As one of the world’s top racing engine design and manufacturers, noise levels in the workplace have always been an issue for Ilmor Engineering.

But when they won a large contract with the US giant General Motors to design and manufacture a new turbo-charged V6 racing engine for the 2012 IndyCar championship, its managers knew immediately this would result in significantly increased production as well as noise levels across the manufacturing and testing departments.

New investment of £180,000 in Heraeus Carbon Infra Red Emitters Allow GI Solutions To Dry Inks at High Speed.

An investment of £180,000 in Carbon infra-red (CIR) emitters from Heraeus Noblelight have allowed GI Solutions to achieve the rapid drying of water-based inks at line speeds of up to1000 ft/min (300m/min) on printing machines at their Leicester factory.

Heraeus Carbon Infra-Red Emitters Ensures Perfect PVC Gelling During Manufacture of Flooring Products

Carbon infra-red (CIR) emitters from Heraeus Noblelight are helping Polyflor of Manchester to ensure perfect gelling of PVC applied to a substrate before the web is further processed under an oil-heated chrome drum. The installation has prevented un-gelled PVC from running off the edges of the substrate, saving product as well as eliminating process and maintenance problems.

Prelubing Industrial Equipment

The rigorous demands on industrial equipment are even more so in cold-weather climates and studies have proven, the majority of engine mechanical wear, almost 90%, occurs at startup. At first crank of the engine, all the oil is in the sump and at the first rotation of the crankshaft the bearings, and all galleys are dry causing metal-to-metal contact to occur damaging the engine over its lifetime. In cold weather  prelube helps to circulate the thick oil prior to cranking.
