What I make at work

Postby Darkspark » Thu, Jan 19 2012, 11:40 AM

Here is a little video Of A furnace I made for a customer at work. Being dried out and tested before delivery. This one was running at 2000f when the video was taken. Will run at 2350 when it is installed.

Steel mill that make all kinds of solid bars. Now they have to run 3 or 4 full sized ingots down the line when they switch dies to do thier final sizing and twist adjustments. At $2000 a pop it can be an expensive process. This furnace will bring smaller shorter pieces up to 2200f for sizing the final dies. they only have to make the final adjustments on the last quarter of the line. So in short it is a die sizing test furnace.

Wow is right! I'd like my steak charred on the outside and red on the inside . . . . . in 30 seconds.
