DAK Aluminium Nozzle Band Heater


The DAK Aluminium compact Nozzle Band Heater is with closed construction and made of used material of aluminium, which is a new development with respect of heat distribution, energy savings and profitability.  Ihne & Tesch GmbH’s customers award this heating type top mark.


Thus the DAK Aluminium compact Nozzle Band Heater achieves the requirements of high level polymer processing in areas of Nozzle and Tooling. With integral thermocouple DAK Aluminium compact Nozzle Band Heater offer exact operating temperatures. With the DAK Aluminium compact Nozzle Band Heater, Ihne & Tesch GmbH has now an alternative with only 75% of compared capacity which reaches easily same operating temperatures. The DGM High Performance Heater Band offers exactly required temperatures and supplies with up to 600°C various application scopes.

Ceramic Insulated Band Heaters

Cast Heaters


Cast Heaters are mechanically durable and long lasting construction is a result of the gravity and sand casting production method. While cast heaters are able to operate in hostile environments, e. g. recycling, diecasting, dropforge and lead processing. The plastic sealed construction makes cast heaters ideal for use in the degassing zones on extrusion. The accurately machined surfaces guarantee optimum heat transfer. The thermally efficient alloys give even heat distribution across the cast heater from the integral tubular heaters. The Cast Heaters are produced in both small and large production quantities and are a product with a high level of both dust and damp production.

ZAK/FAK/FMK Compact Heater


ZAK/FAK/FMK Compact Heaters in the new developed compact cylindrical construction offer various usages in the industrial sector, especially in the polymer processing industry. The ZAK Compact Heaters are comparable in design and construction with the already successful used Flat Compact Heaters FAK. A resistance betted into aluminium offers best heat transfer until corners of the heater. Furthermore protects the closed design the Heater against running over materials. ZAK/FAK/FMK Compact Heaters are as well very suitable for difficult constructions with complicated cut outs/holes (e.g. at degassing zones at tool crossings etc). Wattage distribution and connection outlay are individually matched to customer requirements. ZAK/FAK/FMK Compact Heaters offer a high operation safety and therefore long operation times, which results in excellent economic relationship.

HAK Compact / Aluminium High Performance Heat Cool System with cooling fins


HAK Compact / Aluminium High Performance Heat Cool System with cooling fins have intensive heat cool combinations that are mainly used in extrusion processes. The injection moulding of fibreglass filled polymers is also an interesting application. To follow the increasing demand of more cooling capacity and homogenous temperature distribution a system has been developed from diameter 80 mm and operation temperature ranges up to 450°C max. With HAK Compact / Aluminium High Performance Heat Cool System with cooling fins, the heating and cooling acting over the total zone length is distributing the heat for process configuration equally and abstracts if required excess heat due to an enlarged exterior radiation area. Simple system units (Heating and cooling build one unit) are fixed in a few assembly steps and are connected and covered with a cooling jacket with blower connection. Long lifetimes due to reduced loads, fractional pre-heat time with highest possible cooling capacity shows their efficiency and easy maintenance. HAK Compact / Aluminium High Performance Heat Cool System with cooling fins is a system with future. The advantages with HAK Compact / Aluminium High Performance Heat Cool System with cooling fins are:


  • Heating conception for cooling intensive machines
  • Short heating times with highest possible cooling capacity during production
  • Usage of total cylinder surface for installed heat capacity
  • Installation of high heat capacity which impacts direct to cylinder surface
  • Advanced profitability due to long durability and energy savings against standard systems
  • Easy assembly of halves (no separation of Heating and Cooling elements)

Nozzle band heaters DGM

DGM High Performance Nozzle Band Heater


DGM High Performance Nozzle Band Heaters fulfill the requirements of ambitious polymer processing at the nozzle and tolling sector. The low deadweight and high heat transfer of these DGM High Performance Nozzle Band Heaters avoid thermal dullness and temperature fractions. With integral sensor FE- CuNi/NiCr-Ni DGM High Performance Nozzle Band Heaters assure precise operating temperatures and exceed considerable lifetime of conventional Nozzle Band Heaters
