Induction heating offers many advantages over alternative forms of heating for aluminium and light alloy billets prior to extrusion, rolling, or other forging operations.
It is widely accepted that taper heating (longitudinal temperature gradient) and isothermal extrusion yield productivity and quality gains. Only induction can provide the flexibility and accuracy demanded by modern extrusion companies. Induction heating offers energy efficiency up to double that of fuel fired systems, is compact and environmentally beneficial both in global terms and for the operators.
The various options and packages available provides a versatile and comprehensive means of heating pre-cut billets for a range of applications. Radyne’s experience as a world leading supplier of induction heating equipment enables forging companies to significantly benefit from this experience and to produce their end products competitively and more efficiently than ever before.
