Features

The Inductoforge™ Modular Bar Heating System offers flexibility and efficiency with its individually controlled (500Hz – 6000Hz) power modules. The Inductoforge™ 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.

  • Eliminates heating recipe guesswork
  • Optimal system efficiency
  • Unmatched temperature uniformity
  • The industry’s most advanced heating technology
  • Modular design permits standby functionality (hot parts ready immediately following minor line disruptions)
  • High energy efficiency
  • Enhanced productivity
  • Optimum forging temperature
