Hot forming aluminium

and its alloys

Inductaflex are in the unique position of being able to induction heat aluminium and form the profile whilst at an elevated heat.

 

Using an in-line linear induction heating line, sections are accurately heated to the desired temperature. Upon exit of the heating line the temperature is checked with a special pyrometer for aluminium. Failure to reach the temperature tolerance will result in the bar following the rejection cycle and re-heating. If the correct temperature is achieved the bar proceeds to automatic forming.

 

The bending is again unique, heated rollers ensure the typically cold steel rollers don’t hasten the cooling and create a hardened surface.

 

This is most suitable for profiles suitable for the aerospace, defence and scientific research industry.
