AutoFire controllers

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 keypads 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.
