Hadron Collider

Holroyd Components designed and supplied over 3,000 silicone heaters for use in the Atlas Particle Detector of the large Hadron Collider at CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research).

The heaters were in the form of strips of various lengths with hook and spring fixing and can clearly be seen as the red bands around the eight toroid magnets in the picture to the right. 


The semiconductor industry has become more prominent in our day-to-day lives with computer chips being embedded in every aspect of life. Holroyd Components are proud to be a part of that industry with heating installations in every region globally and in all major logic, memory and display fabs.

National Cash Registers

NCR (National Cash Registers) a global manufacturer of enterprise technology including banking services, required a solution to prevent freezing of the buttons on ATMs when installed in cold climates.

Holroyd Components designed a silicone heater with the appropriate apertures to be mounted directly under the keypad with a suitable power to prevent freezing, even in the harshest environments.

In the following years these heaters were produced in tens of thousands until the introduction of touch screens lessened the requirement.
