Ajax TOCCO has received an order to upgrade an existing bar heating line at a major worldwide steel company in the Midwest. After 40 years of successful operation, the customer chose to replace their existing Ajax TOCCO equipment with a new 1200 kW 10,000 Hz Pacer HF, IGBT power supply.
This upgrade project follows the decision just a few years ago by the same customer to also utilize the Ajax TOCCO Pacer HF for a new bar line which was installed on the East coast.
The Pacer HF is utilized in a variety of applications and provides 100 kW to 4,000 kW of power, with a frequency range of 200 Hz to 100,000 Hz depending on the application needs.
Ajax TOCCO Magnethermic designs and manufactures world class induction heating and melting equipment for various industries and applications throughout the world.
