  • Automated load mechanical handling gear.
  • Direct charge or pass-over type charging machines to suit shop configuration.
  • Forced air cooling chambers with optional water quench.
  • Automated contact thermocouple probes to measure actual billet temperature in side furnace chamber.
  • Integrated internal forced cooling air systems to control cool billets.
  • Specialised PC/PLC based control systems with human/machine interface giving ‘Set point’ control.
  • SCADA control systems.
