Understanding induction heating efficiency and how it can be improved is critical for forgers pursuing the reduction of energy consumption and cost. This article presents a basic mathematical explanation of induction heating efficiency and discusses a variety of practical approaches to maximizing it.
Servo press technology, long-used in the forming of sheet metal, has a future in the forging industry. The energy consumption per production stroke of a servo press is lower than that of a conventional press. Schuler’s Servo-Direct Technology (SDT) presses have been used in forging operations with favorable results.
The international ISO 50001 standard puts forth ambitious goals to reduce CO2 emissions and increase the generation of electricity from renewable energy sources. Energy-intensive manufacturing industries, such as forging, can reduce electricity costs and improve their competitive position through ISO 50001 certification.
AMECO USA's newest products, a family of patent-pending weldless baskets and trays, are designed and manufactured to minimize numerous problems associated with current designs, such as weld fatigue cracking, durability and weight-bearing capacity.
