In this study, the IR heated stress relieve oven, was experimentally and theoretically examined. In experimental measurements, temperature was measured on headlight surface, placed in IR oven, at various conveyor speeds and various distances between IR lamps and headlight surface. In theoretical study, a mathematical model was developed for the headlights surface temperature by using heat transfer theory. The results obtained by the mathematical model and the measurement showed very good agreement with 6.5% average error. It is shown that mathematical model can be used to estimate the surface temperatures in case of different conditions were run in oven
