Extrusion Billet Heaters
Induction heating offers many advantages over alternative forms of heating for aluminium and light alloys prior to extrusion. Radyne delivers Banyard Extrusion Billet Heating Equipment in North America along with Radyne’s new Patent Pending Temp-Painter(R)-SBH(TM) Flexible Taper Billet Heater through our World Wide network of Inductotherm Group Companies.
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.
As the Banyard Brand Representative in North America, Radyne USA is at the forefront of pioneering research into Taper Heating including new approaches to True-Linear™ Taper heating and new previously unavailable Taper functions geared to the demands of modern day presses. Our Induction Process Engineering Center located in Milwaukee includes state of the art FEA simulation analysis and the ability to run scale model testing to qualify the accuracy of the model and infer matterial properties of new and unknown alloys.
