Aluminum Billet Pre-Heat Furnaces

Billets on Conveyor Belt In-Feed Forge Press

Aluminum billets on in-feed of infrared conveyor pre-heat furnace.

IHT manufactures a line of Aluminum Billet Conveyor Pre-Heat Furnaces for forging and extrusion processes. These furnaces are based on the rapid infrared heating technology developed jointly between Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Infrared Heating Technologies. The rapid IR processing results in a finer grain structure and subsequently better metallurgy in the subsequently forged part than those heated with conventional techniques.

Award Winning Technology

Rapid Infrared processing of aluminum forgings has been recognized as one of the top 100 new technologies of 2004 by R&D Magazine.
