Advanced infrared curing and Chain-on-edge machines
BGK’s precision-engineered solutions offer curing capabilities for a full range of coatings including liquid, powder, wax, UV and adhesives. Our solutions can be found all across the globe and in a wide variety of industrial settings.
BGK Finishing Systems design and manufacture electric infrared curing systems and industrial coating process conveyors. The company was formed in 1980 by Chuck Bergman, Rick Ganyo and George Kraun, hence the name BGK and is based in our modern purpose built production facility in Pheasant Ridge Drive, Minneapolis, USA.
We specialize in the use of shortwave Infra-Red Curing as this gives us the capability of close loop temperature due to the rapid response of the lamp. Our solutions offer the advantages of reduced energy consumption, minimized floor space, increased productivity and premier finishes.
BGK prides itself on our testing and lab facilities, expert customer service technicians and the attention to detail that keeps our customers returning to us year after year.
BGK offers a full line of ovens to serve three purposes : Drying / Baking / Curing
Full range of ovens from short wave IR to gas catalytic.
Use for products that contain high moisture.
Oven moves a constant stream of heated air over the product to remove moisture.
Used to heat objects without drying them out and curing the coating to the part.
Object or compound is heated to give it different properties and alter its molecular structure.
IR curing can provide zoned control.
BGK makes a variety of conveyor and control systems to assure effective synergy when a part moves through the finishing process. Conveyors come in two parts specific categories: parts weight, parts size, desired production speed and coating material to be used.
