Heat treatment furnace facilities for the aluminum industry

hotFORM Multi-level batch-type furnace.

Aluminum as a material combines low weight with high strength. Hot formed aluminum components are being used more and more often in the automotive and aerospace industries, in order to create complex shapes with just one processing step.

EBNER is proving its reputation as the most competitive and innovative full solution provider with another innovation: a heat treatment furnace for aluminum hot forming blanks for the automotive industry.

Up to 1 x 1,21 m blanks in size are heated from above and below in two tiers. The blanks are removed from the furnace one by one and placed in the hot forming press.

The CQI-9 ready hotForm multi-level batch-type furnace is available with combustion heating or an electric heating system, depending on the customer’s requirements. An emergency cooling system is provided to prevent overheating of the blanks in the event of a stoppage of the press or the
furnace.

This hot forming of the aluminum blanks permits a high degree of formability. The subsequent aging process creates high strength values in the blanks.
