Convection and Infrared heating both have their time and place for Ramp & Soak applications. Some specifications call for a quick ramp to temperature while others require a slow and steady climb. Generally, once the part is to temperature it will stay at that temperature to “soak” all the heat energy it can, sometimes up to 72 hours.
