Heating Technologies

The heating of metal blanks is an essential step in the hot or warm forming process. Therfore the Institute of Tools and Forming has an electrically heated chamber furnace with optional inert gas flooding. Technical data:
Power: 30 kW
Maximum furnace temperature: 1100 ° C
Dimension (l/w/h) 1500 x 1000 x 500 mm
