It has signed an agreement with IUT Sweden, and has added continuous homogenising to its products available to the extrusion market. The multi-zone vertical airflow furnace technology is flexible. The furnace can process billets of different alloys and diameters.

The control system manages the walking beam cycle time and air temperature setpoints to ensure that furnace throughput is optimised and required product quality is achieved.

The plant consists of the furnace, cooling section, and loading/unloading equipment. The operation is controlled automatically, minimising the need for operator input.

This technology offers reduced cycle times and energy consumption.
