NA TCM Series

IR/Convection Oven for Non-European Regions (TCM Series)

The TCM series oven features a unique downdraft exhaust design. Plenums located close to the coated substrate and below the conveyor rails safely and efficiently remove VOCs. The oven can be attached to an external customer supplied exhaust system to maintain a safe operating environment. Three different lengths are available to match your specific production requirements.

Ideal for mid-to-high volume production, the in-line Thermal Cure Module (TCM) ovens are equipped with a unique downdraft exhaust design, which provides an efficient, safe path for VOC removal

  • Three different lengths are available to match your production requirements
  • Unique downdraft exhaust design provides an efficient, safe path for VOC removal
  • Control your process with individual heating zones that can be programmed for specific drying or curing profiles
  • Increase productivity with a fast warm-up and cool-down
  • Easy access to interior subassemblies aids preventive maintenance and cleaning

The oven is easily integrated with Nordson ASYMTEK’s conformal coating systems. The TCM series ovens include a variety of features including motorized width adjustment of the chain conveyor, SMEMA capabilities, ample clearance above and below to accommodate tall or complex PCB architectures, integrated board profiling (no external hardware required), an exhaust sensor to prevent the heaters from turning on before the exhaust ventilation is enabled, and a flat panel monitor. In addition, the ovens feature two of the most popular temperature-profiling software tools in the industry (KIC and ECD).


  • Integrated board profiling capability – no external hardware required
  • Comes with popular temperature profiling software tools
  • Exhaust sensor prevents heaters from turning on without proper exhaust ventilation enable
  • Flat panel monitor for ease of use
  • Nordson ASYMTEK’s TC series ovens are offered for use in Europe
