Preheating a Billet for Forging

May 29, 2020 4:27:46 PM / by Brett Daly posted in Applications Lab, forging



A customer needed to preheat a billet to 250 ºF (121 ºC) for forging. After forging, it was going to be rolled into bars. The tested material was a 5.5 inch (140 mm) wide billet that was 62 inches (1575 mm) long. The LAB at Ambrell determined that an Ambrell EKOHEAT 250 kW, 5-15 kHz induction heating power supply with a workhead and pancake coil specifically designed for this application would meet the customer's requirements.
