Tempco was approached by a customer in the 3D Printing industry who was seeking a basic, finned channel strip heater (CSF). The design specifications that they gave to Tempco included:

  • a flexible lead wire termination
  • a ground wire
  • a size constraint on the fins
  • a length constraint on the overall heater length
  • a specific lead wire gauge

After a few exchanges regarding design specifications, Tempco designed a heater with a smaller, more appropriate lead wire gauge and the customer approved Tempco’s heater design.

A few months later the customer contacted Tempco to discuss alternate design ideas.  Over the course of several weeks, Tempco designed and manufactured multiple heaters.  Visit our blog for complete details.
