A medical device manufacturer of genetic testing systems designed to automate hospital pathology, reference, and R&D labs, handles up to 40 slides at a time as they rotate on a carousel.
A key objective for the second-generation GenII was to address three performance problems associated with the incumbent, forced-convection system:
- The need to reach temperature quickly and cool down rapidly
- A non-uniform thermal profile
- Lack of performance repeatability
The company turned to the talents of Thermal Circuits, Inc. of Salem, MA, for a cure to their heater issues. Input provided by the company about its application, as well as tests performed at Thermal Circuits, resulted in a workable solution of an etched-foil heater.

About Thermal Circuits:
Thermal Circuits Inc. is a manufacturer of surface heaters, air heaters, molded heaters, heater assemblies, and infrared panel emitters. We service a wide variety of markets and geographic areas and, through continuous quality improvement, strive to maintain world-class leadership in all aspects of our business.
"Firsts" from Thermal Circuits continued during the 1970's and 1980's. We designed, prototyped and produced heaters and assemblies for the first etched foil-heated cafeteria food service stations, infant incubators, hospital warming cabinets, automobile side-view mirrors, kitchen electrics(mini-skillets, deep-fat fryers), and personal care appliances(mist hair setters, styling wands).
This growth prompted the construction in 1996 of a single-storied, 52,000 square foot building which is Thermal Circuits' new home. Still in Salem, the company is owned by its corporate partners and is the anchor company in a newly-developed industrial park. The new facility is state-of-the-art and second to none.
