When you start a new project that involves metals, it’s important to know which materials you are going to use to get the outcome you want. When it comes to heat-treating outcomes, understanding the specific material is even more important.
As the focus on quality processing has evolved, new innovations have come to the aid of thermal processors. However, one area that has not seen improvement in technology is the temperature uniformity survey (TUS).
The Metal Treating Institute (MTI), media partner Industrial Heating and over 30 sponsors are pleased to announce another record-breaking crowd for the Furnaces North America trade show and conference (FNA 2016).
The SPOT AL EQS (SPOT aluminum extrusion, quench and strip) pyrometer provides high accuracy and a three-in-one capability specifically for aluminum applications, including extrusion press exit, extrusion press quench zone and aluminum strip mills.
A dual-wall, low-drift type K and type N mineral-insulated (MI) thermocouple cable design has been developed to improve temperature measurement accuracy, extend thermocouple life and significantly enhance drift characteristics.
Check out the May 2017 issue of Industrial Heating, which includes features on Ford's $1.2 billion investment in three Michigan facilities, a roundup of heat-treat process-verification articles, and much more.
