Ajax TOCCO Magnethermic recently shipped a 1300 kW PowerForge billet heating system to Bonney Forge Corporation, located in Mt. Union, PA.
The 1300kW, 1.3 – 3.3 kHz system is designed to heat carbon steel billets to forging temperatures. The system includes a coil shuttle table for automatic changing of the coils and frequency for differing billet sizes. A PLC with touch screen display featuring ForgeView Plus Software is also included. The unit is loaded by a vibratory bowl feeder.
Bonney Forge’s decision was based on several factors, including:
- Ajax TOCCO’s total package fit their requirements.
- Prior experience with Ajax TOCCO equipment has been good.
- Ajax TOCCO Service, when required, is expedient.
- PowerForge provided versatility, multi-frequency as well as the ability to easily run a wide variety of parts.
