PURPOSE

Die to be equal to billet temperature for the first push, minimizing break through pressure enabling the use of high performance dies, reducing die breakage and eliminating start up billets

Minimize die bearing oxidation and nitride layer degradation responsible for surface defects on the profile, shorter die life, and reduced die knock-off

FUNCTION

To heat the die uniformly to within +/- 5ºC (10ºF) of billet temperature in the minimum amount of time without over-heating and softening the die steel or damaging the nitride layer on the die bearing.

BENEFITS

Avoids the use of higher temperature first billets

The die is individually heated to operation temperature rapidly

Dies are positively protected from overheating
