NEW! Orton has released the 4th generation of kiln controllers. The line-up includes the Autofire 4000 (12key), Autofire 4X (3key) and the Autofire Slide (Touchscreen).
Orton programmable kiln controllers are designed to automatically fire electric kilns or ovens with precise temperature control and reliability. They include many programming features, user-friendly interfaces and robust temperature control software.
Whether the application is ceramic firings, heat treating, glass fusing, or enameling, Orton controllers provide reproducible results for quality firings. AutoFire controllers are available as component panels for kiln manufacturers or as complete stand-alone control systems to upgrade and operate kilns with manual controls.
The AutoFire Slide touchscreen controller is a variable PID temperature controller for any electric kiln application, designed with a long list of standard programming features and configuration options.
Fulfilling the directive of our founder and benefactor, the Edward Orton Jr. Ceramic Foundation deploys its profits to support studies and research at the university level to promote and advance the science of materials processing.
