This heater is designed for the induction heating of cross-sectionally round billets to forging temperatures. It is equipped with a transistor-based converter. It includes an automatic billet feeder supplied by billets that are placed into the material hopper located on the plate feeder. Control of the entire system is handled by a Siemens programmable logic controller (PLC). Each billet's temperature is measured by a pyrometer. Furthermore, the heater is equipped with a hot billet sorter, which blocks improperly-heated billets (either underheated or overheated) from being delivered to the press. The operator interfaces with the induction heater using the control panel which includes push-buttons and an interactive display. The heater parameters (desired temperature, power level, temperature ranges, employee login, etc) are all set on the PLC display. This same display also communicates any faults in the induction heating system to the operator.
