This heater is designed for the induction heating of cross-sectionally round steel billets to forging temperature. It is designed for manual placement of the billets including the ability to place more billets at one time into the angled feed chute. The inductor is equipped with guide tubes that are settable lengthwise a 120mm. The system is controlled by a Siemens programmable logic controller (PLC). The temperature of each heated piece is measured with a non-contact pyrometer and the time/date stamp and temperature value can be saved to the PLC memory. The operator interfaces with the induction heater using the control panel which includes push-buttons and an interactive PLC display. The heater parameters (desired temperature, power level, temperature ranges, employee code, etc) are all set on the PLC display. This same display also communicates any faults in the induction heating system to the operator.
