Sensitive alloys have to homogenized after casting to reduce the stress within the ingots. Homogenizing temperature is just below the melting point. The more precisely the temperature can be controlled, the shorter annealing time can be without risking the ingot starting to melt. Our HICON (HIgh CONvection) technology ensures the lowest temperature scatter and the shortest possible heating-up times.
In addition to ingots, cast strip coils and extruded billets can also be homogenized in this type of furnace.
The facility can be implemented to comply with the standards required by the automotive and aerospace industry. These standards are primarily AMS 2750 (SAE Aerospace) in the aircraft industry and CQI-9 (AIAG) for the automotive industry.
