Product Announcement from Inductotherm Group
Inductoheat's new InductoForge™ modular billet heating system is a revolutionary product for the forging industry. The flexible modular design allows the forge shop to assemble an induction system that exactly matches its application requirements by allowing the addition or subtraction of power modules for future production needs.
The InductoForge™ system uses power modules that are capable of running at wide range of frequencies with minimal change: (500Hz to 6000Hz). Each module is individually controlled resulting in a much finer and more accurate control of the billet temperature.
High efficiency is achieved through specialized induction coil design and minimal transmission bus. The heavy-duty, single size forging coil consists of cast end boards, copper windings and long-life removable liner for heating a wide range of billet diameters.
Inductoheat designed the IHAZ -Temperature Profile Modeling computer program to set up an advanced temperature control for the InductoForge Billet Heater. IHAZ can be used to customize the billet temperature profile (Induction Heat Affected Zone) to best suit the application. IHAZ generates the optimum-running parameters and set points for Standby and Rapid Start, which are stored as a recipe in the billet heater's PLC.
