Inductive heating technologies for warm and hot forming processes have been among our most successful technology developments for over 50 years.
The spectrum covered by SMS Elotherm ranges from compact, flexible billet heating machines to fully automatic system solutions for integration into forging lines.
With the new ECO-BTH, SMS Elotherm has realised yet another innovative design for inductive steel billet heating plants, geared to the efficient forging of billet material with diameters between 20 and 80 mm.
The power input components are accommodated in the readily accessible substructure.
The systems are designed to operate across a frequency range from 1 to 10 kHz, with output power of up to 800 kW.
This practical modular design, with all power components accommodated into the easily accessible substructure, is the basis for a comprehensive scope of applications, enabling flexible, speedy installation into various customer forging applications.
Integration into new or existing forging presses lines is possible with the minimum of complication: or outlay.
Throughputs up to 2.2 t/h now permit even more economica heating of standard forging blanks
Benefits of the new ECO-BTH
Low-cost investment Minimum delivery time
Simple installation and handling
Competitive operating and production costs
The development of the ECO-BTH enables SMS Elotherm to offer forging companies worldwide access to a new market segment, pairing clever functionality with due consideration of all national and international quality standards.
This low cost heating plant can be installed anywhere in the world, without demanding extensive assembly work.
