Minneapolis, Minn.‚â€” Minco has a new, free design guide that will enable you to design flexible Thermofoil‚â„¢ heaters. With elements sandwiched in-between thin layers of various insulations, these flexible heaters can wrap, bend and twist to heat three-dimensional components. The Flexible Heaters Design Guide can be ordered in print from Minco‚â€™s website or downloaded.
The 62-page guide explains the benefits and gives complete specifications. You will also learn how to choose appropriate insulation type and installation option. There is also a step-by-step guide on calculating required wattage and tips for testing and prototyping your heater. The guide also helps you determine whether one of Minco‚â€™s thousands of standard heater designs or a custom design will be your best option. In addition to the Guide, a Flexible Heaters Prototype Design Kit is also available.
