EloHeat™ optimizes hot and cold rolling processes


Due to the modular system, EloHeat™ can be economically adapted to all rolling mill types. Induction solutions can be applied for steel, aluminum and NF metals. In general, Elotherm’s induction solutions in rolling mills ensure productivity increases, improved surfaces, minimization of roll wear through reduced rolling forces and homogeneous microstructure adjustments. In addition, a lower strip gage can be achieved with additional heating.



Modern induction technology is highly suitable for a supplement or expansion of the existing furnace technology and can be used as so-called "booster heating method". The adaptation inertia of traditional furnaces can be compensated by the boosters in an effective, efficient and space-saving manner. Consequently, the induction technology enables higher processing speeds with constant product quality. This results in an increase in production and at the same time reducing costs.



Depending on application, either the classical longitudinal field or the technically more demanding cross field heating is used. For longitudinal field heating, the inductor surrounds the strip to be heated and for cross field heating the inductors are mounted laterally, or positioned above or below. The application of the respective method is dependant on strip thickness and temperature.
