Inductoheat Ships Billet Heating System
The system is comprised of several heavy-duty material-handling features. The start of this forging line is a 6,500-pound-capacity bin tipper that allows a bin of parts to be dumped into the step feeder for automatic refill. The billet step feeder provides continuous feeding of billets end to end on the conveyor feeding system. A billet magazine allows for precise control for the in-feed and exit-feed pusher assemblies, and an oval-type coil assembly accommodates eight billets to be heated in-line.
