Forjasul orders EloForge induction heating system

Forjasul Canoas from Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, has placed an order with SMS Elotherm for the supply of an EloForge induction heating system. SMS Elotherm will integrate the system into Forjasul’s existing plant and customizes the system precisely to the production requirements.

With the nominal power of 500 KW, the system will heat up to 1,250 kg steel billets with 51 mm in diameter per hour to the required temperature of 1,250 °C.

“EloForge is part of our ForgeLine and has recently been reengineered completely. It provides a compact design and consists of different modules. These  can be combined flexibly to achieve optimal productivity, stable processes and high product quality”, says Elotherm do Brazil General Manager Jose Machado.

The project with Forjasul is one of two current orders for an EloForge from Brazil and further strengthens SMS Elotherm’s position in the Brazilian market for forging equipment. EloForge is available for billets up to 100 mm, for slabs up to 240 mm and also for bar material up to 360 mm OD.

Forjasul Canoas is part of the Tramontina Group and since 1959 pioneering in the field of forged products for high voltage transmission lines, steel industry,  shipyard and oil application as well as hand tools. Their products range from forged hooks, forged electrical hardware to forged vises, an exclusive Forjasul product on the Brazilian market.

Forjasul will commission its new EloForge in spring 2013.
