The Infrared Equipment Division (IRED) of the Industrial Heating Equipment Association (IHEA) provides services to our members that enhance their ability to serve the end users in the industrial heat processing industry. In order to offer IRED member companies the competitive edge, IRED make it a priority to provide timely and useful information to its members. This includes information about emerging and currently available infrared technologies.
The Infrared Equipment Division (IRED) of the IHEA)was formerly known as the Infrared Equipment Association (IREA), an independently operated trade association made of of gas and electric infrared manufacturers and utility companies. In 2003, IHEA & IREA recognized the mutual goals, benefits, and synergies of the two association, adn agreed to consolidate. IREA therefore became a new division of IHEA.

produced and its characteristics. It also highlighted the benefits of using infrared technologies and reviewed all equipment sources of infrared,
followed by a discussion of a wide variety of IR applications for industrial finishing showcasing the many ways in which IR can be utilized to provide efficient
curing in today's industrial environment.
The webinar included analysis of relevant case studies using
the Infrared technology.
