Facts About Industrial Oven Manufacturing


Fresh out of college and with a brand new, totally usable engineering degree, and I had no idea what I wanted to do with it. My whole family is made of engineers. It was never a question of whether I would be an engineer. It wasn’t even a question of employability – I had worked with a number of firms on a variety of projects throughout my years of study, many of which were ready to hire me on graduation. But I just didn’t particularly fancy any of them. Then, by chance, as I was browsing an engineering magazine, hoping for inspiration, I happened to read about Perceptive Industries.

The people at Perceptive Industries are industrial oven manufacturers. Right away this caught my attention because it was unique – at least, it was unique to my family. I browsed through their website and gave them a call. They were kind enough to show me around their plant and I learned all about draw ovens, industrial conveyor ovens, stress relieving ovens, and all sorts of things that their team – which included many engineers – worked on.

I am now actively looking for a position as part of a team of industrial oven manufacturers. I’m so happy I found something to do with my skills. The position I had been working the year and a half since graduating was not fulfilling or interesting in the least. Though I don’t know a lot about industrial oven manufacturing, I am very excited to learn and very grateful to Perceptive Industries for helping me spark my interest.


Perceptive Industries-Best Industrial Oven Manufacturer


Doing a report for one of my classes in school, I was assigned the topic of industrial ovens. I mean, what is that? I didn’t know and it sounded boring – I didn’t want to know. A quick search through the internet confirmed my fear: not just boring; very boring. Industrial ovens didn’t even have anything to do with baking. I was beyond bummed.

Fortunately or unfortunately, I am a very motivated student, so I plodded forward and decided to learn more in the least boring way I knew how: talking to a person. I looked up a fairly nearby industrial oven manufacturer and found Perceptive Industries. They’re very close by – I didn’t even know that we had a manufacturer that close! Anyhow, I asked if I could speak to one of their engineers and I was offered a chance to come in and see their business.

When I first got there, it seemed just as boring as I had suspected. But as I was talking to one of the engineers, I actually started getting really interested. He showed me around, teaching me about draw ovens, stress relieving ovens, industrial conveyor ovens, and what felt like a million different kinds of ovens that I had never even heard of before.

By the end of it, I was actually fascinated and I wanted to learn more. My class was even kind of interested, too, when I presented the report and I got an A on it!

I’m going to college to be an engineer, myself, next year. Though I had been thinking communications engineering, I might consider a change in track after what I learned from Perceptive Industries.

Michigan Company Leads The Way in Thermal Technology

 homepg_oven_1Our company is proud to lead the way in thermal technology. We are a dynamic group with over 200 years of combined experience in the engineering, design, and manufacturing of thermal systems worldwide. We pride ourselves in our strength in three areas of focus.  Our three core products are regenerative thermal oxidizers, industrial dryers and ovens such as a stress relief oven and waste heat recovery. We are focused on producing the most cost effective, energy efficient systems in the industry.

Our line of thermal oxidizers includes regenerative thermal oxidizers, catalytic, recuperative, straight incineration and abatement and scrubber combinations. In regard to hydrogen embrittlement relief or stress relief ovens, we offer large capacity ovens with twin independent conveying systems that transfer workbaskets through oven maintaining a consistent bake temperature. These stress relief ovens process over 48,000 pounds at one time.

We offer our products and expertise all over the world. Recently, we were awarded a contract for a turnkey Tandem Tin Plate Coating Line for a large manufacturer of cans in Europe.

We have regarded optimization of thermal process performance as our central focus. From combustion performance to heat recovery, we are committed to the art of optimizing performance while reducing energy requirements. We provide a full range of engineering services, including feasibility studies, technical audits, project management, detailed engineering, and other innovative services.

Michigan Oven

 PERCEPTIVE INDUSTRYI own and run a Michigan company. We are located in Michigan, we don’t outsource our jobs, we get our materials in Michigan. It is my personal mission to do everything I can to support this state. So, when the stress relief oven broke down in my plant and I had to replace it and I saw that the company that made the machine was located in California, I knew I had to find someone in Michigan to provide me my new oven.

It didn’t take long for me to find Perceptive Industries. They, like my company, are Michigan-based and Michigan-run. The only thing I love the way I love Michigan is supporting other companies who share my vision. And, naturally, being a Michigan-based company, they provided me with excellent service, a reasonable price, and a high-quality product. I was completely taken aback by how quickly I was able to get production up and running again when they helped me replace my stress relief oven and revamp my whole system.

Michigan has been my home since I was born. I love this place and I love to support it and for that reason I loved my experience with Perceptive Industries. I only wish that every company I worked with had dedication to our state the way that they do.

My stress relief oven is back up and running with no problems, but now I have to replace my hydrogen embrittlement relief system. Yeah, having to slow down production is a huge pain, but really, I’m not dreading it that much. It’ll just give me yet another opportunity to support our great state by working with a great company.
