About

Research, Inc. (RI) /Precision Control Systems, Inc. (PCS)

Precision Control Systems, Inc. (PCS) and Research, Inc. (RI) are industry leaders in the design, development, and manufacture of electric infrared heaters, heating products, power controls and integrated heating systems. The products are designed to meet a wide variety of process requirements including the IR heating, curing, drying, soldering, bonding, and annealing of many different materials.

For over fifty-five years the company has designed, manufactured, and marketed heating products, heating systems and control systems to various industries from aerospace to water treatment. Initially established to develop infrared-based heating systems for the aerospace industry, their product offering has evolved into a wide variety of individual heaters and integrated heating systems. Products within the ChamberIR®, LineIR®, StripIR®, SpotIR®, PanelIR®, Hi-TempIR®, SimulateIR®, Lo-TempIR®, and ControlIR® brand families are used both individually and within integrated heating systems. These heaters and systems can be found in many different industries including plastic and rubber processing, medical, metal heat-treating, electronics manufacturing, and material testing.

Precision Control Systems, Inc. was formed in 1998 by a group of former RI employees to provide support and manufacture control systems and products formerly provided by RI. As PCS’s business grew it expanded into designing heaters and custom heating systems to complement the controls they had been providing. In August, 2007 PCS completed the acquisition of Research Inc and the industrial IR heater products and systems. Since that time they have added experienced engineering and manufacturing personnel and have the goal of once again being the “go to” company for all infrared heater applications from simple to seemingly impossible.

Where a standard product does not fit their talented team of professionals can also design and manufacture custom heating solutions to meet the most challenging application requirements. The problem you have in your process is looked at as a challenging opportunity to Research, Inc. (RI) /Precision Control Systems, Inc. (PCS).

Whether it's one of their standard products or a custom heating system, the RI/PCS team is committed to providing the solution to their customers' most demanding heating problems.
