Inductoforge™ Modular Billet Heating System

Inductoforge™ Modular Billet Heating System

The 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. The powerful combination of advanced engineering, product innovation and over 55 years of experience in induction heating has made Inductoforge™ billet heating systems the world leader in billet and bar heating for forging.

The Inductoforge™ Modular Billet Heating System offers flexibility and efficiency with its individually controlled (500Hz – 6000Hz) power modules. The Inductoforge™ billet heating systems utilize our proprietary iHaz™ Temperature Profile Modelling Software giving the user the tools to generate an ideal system recipe and precisely heated billet.

The iHaz™ software package is a predictive numerical simulation technology that accurately forecasts the temperature throughout the cross section of the billet, from the surface to the core. The heating system’s modular design makes it possible to employ a standby function that keeps the billet at temperature, ready to start forging immediately following minor line disruptions.

• Pinch roll and tractor chain infeed systems
• Hot billet extraction equipment
• Automatic billet feeding systems
• iHAZ™ Advanced temperature control
• Optional billet clean out system
• Coil shuttle table
• Accept/reject system
• Robot interface kit
