Heat treatment lines for sand castings
The solution heat treatment programme includes
Batch solution heat treatment plants allow a very flexible production according to volumes and production recipes used.
The batch concept includes multi-chamber ovens for heat treatment, movable water tanks for quenching, ageing ovens and air coolers. Transport to the different locations is made manually or automatically. Automatic handling minimizes damage and provides an exact production rate.
In comparison with a continuous plant where the total investment cost is made from day one, the batch modular concept lets the investment volume follow the capacity needed. By following this formula, no extra investment is done and the investment pay-back time is kept to a minimum.
When choosing the continuous solution heat treatment concept, the customer´s production flow is often at a steady level with a minimum of production variation. The continuous heat treatment solution includes a tunnel oven for heat treatment and a cabin for water-spray quench or a tank for water-dip quench followed by in-line artificial ageing. Transport on chain conveyor or walking beam system.
