Continuous Homogenizing Centres

Sistem Teknik offers both continuous type and batch type logs homogenising furnaces. It is decided whether the system is continuous or batch type according to capacity, quality expectations, alloy requirements, diameter variety and layout. 

Sistem Teknik produces continuous type homogenising furnaces with temperature homogeneity less than ± 3 °C with a capacity that varies from 2 to 18 tons/hour, and with the diameters from 4 to 12” and length up to 8200 mm. In continuous type homogenising furnaces, from the receipt of the billets to the packaging process, all movements are carried out automatically through the entrance conveyor in the system. 

Homogenisation times are reduced by almost half in continuous homogenising centres compared to batch type ones. While all billets undergo the same heat treatment during continuous homogenisation, the same quality is provided for all billets and any marks on log surfaces are prevented. By means of the turbo cooling system, 1250 °C/h cooling rates can be achieved easily and eliminate quality problems caused by cooling with various alloys. Through the use of an ultrasonic examination station, crack inspection is made especially for alloys used in the aerospace and automotive industry.

A typical continuous type log homogenisation centre consists of the following equipments:

• Complete Log Loading System

• Log Transfer Conveyor

• Ultrasonic Inspection Station

• Sawing Machine

• Transfer Cars

• Furnace Log Loading Conveyor

• Gas Heated Continuous Type Aluminum Logs Homogenization Furnace

• Continuous Type Aluminum Logs Cooling Cabinet with Fast Cooling Option

• Cooling Cabinet Exit Conveyor

• Semi-Automatic/Automatic Log Strapping Machines

• Marking Unit
