Industrial furnaces and related products used for heat treatment of ceramics, electronic components, metals, glass and more. Produced and sold by group company Tokai Konetsu Kogyo Co., Ltd.
The flat glass used in smartphone liquid crystal screens is made in a gas or oil furnace. It comes out of the furnace very hot and needs to be cooled down slowly. EREMA heating elements are responsible for that delicate temperature regulation. In 1927, EREMA became the first silicon carbide heating elements to be sold commercially in Japan. We have been improving their quality ever since and are now the biggest producer in the industry. Industrial furnaces are used to heat, melt and sinter glass, ceramics, electronic components, metals and powders. As a comprehensive manufacturer, we design and manufacture industrial furnaces as well as the heating elements and refractory materials that go in them. From small test furnaces to large scale industrial equipment, we enlist a wide range of technologies to produce furnaces and related products for all fields.
EREMA (silicon carbide) heating elements are used to heat electric furnaces for the heat treatment of glass, electronic parts, lithium-ion batteries and much more.
Tokai Carbon's industrial furnaces are used as electric furnaces for the heat treatment of electronic parts, lithium-ion batteries and more.
EREMA resistors are used in large circuit breakers and all kinds of heavy electric machinery.
We combined the manufacturing technology behind EREMA heating elements with the SiC-related know-how we have gathered over the years to develop this ceramic structural material, which can withstand high temperatures and has high thermal conductivity.
We custom manufacture all our industrial furnaces. In our design process, we insist on the following.
