Aluminium production. HICON batch-type furnace
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.
