Strip flotation lines are employed for the continuous horizontal heat treatment of aluminum strips, catering to the stringent requirements of the aerospace and automotive industries.
The process involves precise cooling at presettable rates using various media. Depending on the alloy and strip thickness, cooling can be accomplished with water, mist, or air. This tailored approach ensures optimal heat treatment outcomes for diverse aluminum strip applications.
Benefits at a glance:
The furnace and cooling sections of the strip flotation lines operate on the strip flotation principle, where the running strip is supported on an air cushion as it undergoes heating, air cooling, and drying processes. The established OTTO JUNKER nozzle system ensures high heat input and stable non-contacting strip movement, prioritizing the gentle treatment of the product. This system's efficient heat transfer and precise centering contribute to high throughput rates, even with minimal line length.
