Summary. We unveil a state-of-the-art curing oven, significantly expanding heat treatment capabilities with a 450°C maximum and a large 4.8m³ capacity. This upgrade boosts efficiency and throughput in industrial coatings while emphasising sustainable energy practices, solidifying EMC’s industry leadership.


East Midlands Coatings (EMC) continues to define the future of industrial coatings. As a part of our mission to deliver high-performance, corrosion-resistant, and aesthetically pleasing solutions, we are thrilled to announce our latest upgrade – a state-of-the-art, custom-made curing oven.

New Heights of Heat Treatment With Our Curing Oven

Our new curing oven isn’t just an upgrade; it’s a revolution in our heating capabilities. With its ability to reach an astounding 450°C, we’re now more equipped than ever to provide unique solutions, such as curing food-approved coatings and prebaking or degassing parts when necessary. This oven’s daily use since installation underlines the critical role it plays in enhancing our service delivery.

Size and Efficiency, Redefined

Size matters in industrial coatings. Previously, our largest oven measured slightly over 1m³. This capacity was suitable for most tasks, but we knew we could push the boundaries. Our new oven, with a staggering capacity of 4.8m³, has transformed our capabilities. We can now efficiently handle large-scale components, including sizable mould tools, food processing chutes, hoppers, and more. This upgrade significantly increases our versatility in catering to diverse customer requirements.

Meeting Increasing Demand Without Compromising Lead Times

With the enhanced capacity of the new oven, we can batch cure more parts simultaneously. This means we can double, or even triple, the throughput for some of our regular jobs. By doing so, we’re addressing the increasing demand for our high-performance coatings without extending our lead times. Now, whether it’s automotive coatings, construction coatings, or custom coatings, we can deliver with the same promptness our clients have come to expect.
