Thermserve have recently completed the installation and commissioning of a log heating and hot sawing system at Aluminium Shapes, Corby, UK. The system, whilst optimised for 152mm is also designed to accept 178mm logs. The system also includes a cut billet manipulator which presents the billet to the press. The system is fitted with a full billet recovery system ensuring class leading efficiencies in terms of metal throughput. The furnace is fitted with a heat recovery system ensuring low energy consumption and low emissions. This is the latest in a long line of heater saw or shear combinations Thermserve has sold over the last few years, supplying worldwide.
