About us

Medium-sized, globally successful and already in the third generation – that’s who we are. We are GC-heat. At our German headquarters we’ve been developing and manufacturing innovative and high quality products for our customers for more than 70 years.

The highest degree. That’s what we have committed ourselves to. That’s the way we have become one of the leading manufacturers of industrial electric heating elements in Europe. Along the way, important cornerstones of our philosophy were consistently implemented into the interaction within our teams and our customers. Reliability, flexibility and creativity are only three of these.

For us the most important cornerstone is partnership. We strongly believe that only with fair and open cooperation we can remain successful in the long run.

With our customers, with our employees and with our suppliers.

That’s what GC-heat stands for.

Products and services

Bringing a tool to a precise operating temerature is essential in the field of thermal machining processes. Hereby, the range of utilized heating elements spans from the coil heater all the way up to the high-performance cartridge heater used in the tool heating and includes many different fields and industries. The heating of plastic and subsequent shaping into desired form is equally part of the application spectrum just as the utilization in the medical sector, hotrunner industry and many other industries.


GC-coil coil heaters are available in various cross sections and sizes and offer high-capacity electrical heating in the tightest of installation spaces at temperatures of up to 750 °C on the cartridge sheath. The minimum bending radius of R3 to R13 allows the use of the GC-coil coil heaters not only in straight or coiled form, but in almost every geometrical shape. An optionally integrated thermocouple enables precise temperature control.



Flexible tubular heaters

The flexible tubular heaters GC-flex D-shape or GC-flex square are delivered ex-stock in various sizes and can be bent to fit virtually any 2D or 3D groove using the GC-flex tool set, for example. The outer sheath, made of woven pure nickel, adapts to any curvature and presses itself evenly against the surface of the groove. This guarantees optimal heat transfer even when under extreme mechanical stress.



High density cartridge heaters

GC-cart high-density cartridge heaters guarantee a high level of stability even under difficult operating conditions. High surface loads enable equally high performance in a compact space, even at operating temperatures of up to 750°C on the cartridge heater’s sheath. GC-cart high-density cartridge heaters conform to metric and imperial international norms. We cater to individual customer requirements and produce diameters between 6 mm and 45 mm on request.

News & Innovations

Opening of GC-heat Chinese Subsidiary  We are pleased to announce the official opening of our Chinese subsidiary GC-heat Technology (Kunshan) Co. Ltd.

For many years we have continuously striven to make our company fit for future challenges. In this respect the development and expansion of international markets is a crucial step.

By opening a subsidiary in China we take account of the increasing importance of the Chinese market and are able to meet the expectations of our local customers and business partners more efficiently.

The main tasks of our local team are to grant a personal on-site support for our customers and to further expand the sales network.

Our high-quality heating elements, however, will continually be produced at our headquarters in Germany.
