Aluminium parts

Chamber furnace with air circulation

Oven temperaturemax 350 °C
Batch weight2.000 kg
Batch size1,200 x 2,000 x 2,000 mm (L x W x H)
HeatingDirect electric heating

The compact chamber furnace can be loaded by forklift as well as by movable furnace grate. The furnace door can be moved and pressed on by electric motor. The chamber furnace forms the core for the following modular expandable equipment:

  • Air quench / air shower
  • Water/polymer quenching
  • Charging equipment
  • Chamber furnace line

Chamber furnace with quenching bath

Oven temperaturesmax. 560 °C
Heating capacity1.200 kg/h
Batch weight1.500 kg
Batch size1,200 x 1,500 x 1,500 mm (L x W x H)
HeatingDirect electric heating

The furnace system is fed via the water quench bath using a forklift truck. The water quenching bath has a hydraulic lowering platform and can be tempered between 40 and 85°C by means of electric heating and pipe cooling. The batch is transported from the chamber furnace to the quenching bath by means of a push chain. The conversion time is less than 25s. The furnace system is used for solution annealing of aluminum parts.

Roller hearth furnace for aluminium parts

Oven temperaturesSolution annealing max. 560 °C
Heating capacityAgeing max. 300 °C"
Batch weight6,000 kg/h
Batch sizemax. 2,000 kg
Heating1,000 x 2,000 x 2,000 mm (L x W x H)

The roller hearth furnaces are components of a fully automated heat treatment plant for aluminum parts. The modular roller hearth plant can be individually adapted to the required heat treatment specification. The plant can also be set up in line or in a U-shape. A subsequent extension or increase in capacity can be achieved by branching or adding modules.

Batch tracking in combination with heat treatment recipe management allows different components to be treated simultaneously in the furnace system.

Solution annealing in salt bath

Salt bath temperaturesmax 520 °C
Heating capacity1.400 kW
Useful space (L x W x H)14,000 x 1,500 x 3,000 mm (L x W x H)
HeatingDirect electric heating
Permissible salt bath mediumNitrate salt AS 300

The plant is used for solution annealing of components made of aluminum alloys in a molten salt bath. The plant is installed at ground level, has 4 separately movable lids and is fed with the material to be treated from above via a crane system.

The temperature control of the molten salt is optimized in such a way that the temperature uniformity in the working chamber of class 1, according to AMS2750E, is achieved with a variation of +/- 3 K (°C).
