Frigosystem - Shared expertise for a unique solution

Frigosystem - Shared expertise for a unique solution

Extrusion is a process in which plastic is deformed to create objects of a fixed cross-sectional profile (for example, tubes): the polymer is heated, compressed and pushed through a die with the shape of the profile to be created. When the polymer exits the die it is force-cooled at a controlled temperature by chillers or cooling units to optimize process efficiency and yield. During this phase, precise temperature control is especially important to guarantee the extrudate’s reliability and constant technical characteristics. External ambient factors may have a significant effect on the final product, and therefore the cooling system must be able to detect climatic conditions and incorporate them in the process.

Linn - Inductive heated lab furnace

Linn - Inductive heated lab furnace

Linn, a specialist in industrial furnaces, needed to setup an induction for melting tests on several metals (from platinum to iron). Induction furnaces are electrical furnaces in which the heat is applied by induction heating of metal.
The advantage of an induction furnace is a clean, energy-efficient and well-controllable melting process compared to most other means of metal melting.

AP&T - Hot stamping lines

AP&T - Hot stamping lines

Precise and constant control of furnace temperature is a key factor on AP&T’s hot stamping lines. Some customers may have unstable electrical power supplies, and current peaks or short circuits may cause the line to shut down and stop production, resulting in wasted product and lost energy.
By installing Gefran’s Xtratm power controller on all of its lines, AP&T ensures it customers reliable and automatic protection against electrical overloads.
