HICON batch-type furnaces for ingots.

Sensitive alloys have to homogenized after casting to reduce the stress within the ingots. Homogenizing temperature is just below the melting point. The more precisely the temperature can be controlled, the shorter annealing time can be without risking the ingot starting to melt.

Our HICON (HIgh CONvection) technology ensures the lowest temperature scatter and the shortest possible heating-up times.

In addition to ingots, cast strip coils and extruded billets can also be homogenized in this type of furnace.

HICON batch-type furnaces are distinguished by the following features:

  • Simple foundation
  • Suitable for all ingot shapes, even those with
    disadvantageous width/thickness ratios
  • High heating-up rates
  • Low energy consumption
  • High flexibility, even for highly-variable groupings of
    ingots in each batch
  • Economically expandable, without additional handling systems

The facility can be implemented to comply with the standards required by the automotive and aerospace industry.
These standards are primarily AMS 2750 (SAE Aerospace) in the aircraft industry and CQI-9 (AIAG) for the automotive industry.
