A revolutionary radiant heater band.

When you’re searching for more efficiency and savings, look no further than RapidFire Heater Bands from Alkegen. Our high-efficiency heater bands will reduce energy costs associated with plastic injection molding barrel heating by an average of 40%, resulting in a return on your investment in as little as 12 to 24 months.

A new approach to barrel heating.

RapidFire Heater Band technology employs radiant heat in addition to thermal containment to control and direct heat straight into the melt rather than into the factory, like traditional heating systems. The result? Reduced operation costs. Energy savings. And so much more.
