Induction Forging Technology is a method of plastically deforming a metal accomplished by hammering on a single piece of metal.
Inductelec Induction Forging Technology equipment embraces the following features:
- Both MF and RF power units are available
- Handling systems suitable for both billet heating and bar end heating
- Repeatable, controllable heat
- Reduced energy costs
- Less oxidation of component improving tool life
Induction Forging Technology Systems are designed to integrate into:
- Vertical press forging
- Automatic horizontal forging
- Upset forging
- Hammer forging
Induction Forging Railway Rail
1m section of railway rail heated to 1200°C in 9 minutes using a 500Kw D Type MF induction heater
Materials processed include aluminium, brass, copper, steel and stainless steel. Inductelec billet feeders having a variety of handling solutions including pinch wheel, pusher, walking beam and caterpillar type drive units. The above systems are all PLC controlled and have the ability to monitor or control any parameter requested. Inductelec bar end heaters utilise a variety inductor designs depending upon the associated handling system in the unit.
Typical concepts include conveyors, pick and place, V block, rotary table and pneumatic cylinder pusher systems. All the above systems can be tailored to customers exact requirements. The industry norm is to have a standard unit which does not allow flexibility or the customer to integrate features that would benefit their specific process. Inductelec believe in consultation as no two applications or customers are identical. We manufacture systems bespoke allowing input from the customer and providing the optimum solution for your particular process.
