Integrated heat treatment for automobile components based on modular, mobile plants
FACHBEITRAG

Integrated heat treatment for automobile components based on modular, mobile plants

Autor: Marcus Rüther

As a result of the increasingly intensive use of aluminium components in present and future automobiles, demand for heat treatment for the production of these components is growing. At the same time, heat treatment is becoming an increasingly important process step because of the growing demands posed by more and more complex component properties. This is the challenging situation addressed by Aluvation Technology Center Paderborn GmbH – a technology company founded by Markus Belte in October 2016 – with its Aluvation system, which reinterprets integrated heat treatment by offering a complete package for the treatment of automobile components. The package includes process development and the supply of the treatment plant as well as data logging and processing.

Optimization of a heat treatment process with an innovative induction plant

Optimization of a heat treatment process with an innovative induction plant

Autoren: Stefan Beer / Michael Müller / Frank Hippenstiel / Wolfgang Janz

In 2014, plans were initiated for acquiring a new induction heating plant in Siegen, Germany. This project has its origins in the 1980s when a joint research project by the University of Siegen, RWTH Aachen University and Boschgotthardshütte (BGH) focused on the concept of quenching from the hot working temperature. The motivation behind the installation of an innovative, multi-zone induction heating plant was the simplification of the complex heat treatment process in order to make efficient use of resources when heat treating stainless steels and simultaneous improvement of the properties of the steel bars.

Thermal processing plants in the smart factory

Thermal processing plants in the smart factory

Autoren: Hartmut Steck-Winter / Günther Unger

The smart factory changes the basis of production. The classical production hierarchy will be dissolved and replaced by self-organizing decentralized cyber-physical production systems. The production chain becomes a production network. Smart products actively support the production process. The workpiece knows what it is, where it is, what it is supposed to be and how it can be manufactured. This makes the production more flexible. Resource efficiency, smart services and big data become indispensable framework conditions. The future impact on thermal processing plants, planned and existing ones, will be significant. This article is an attempt to determine the status of thermal processing plants on the way to the factory of the future.

Cost-cutting in plant construction with digital engineering tools

Cost-cutting in plant construction with digital engineering tools

Autor: Gerhard Stich

Both innovation and market cycles are becoming shorter and shorter, and new products need to go into production quickly and cost-efficiently. At the same time, we’re also seeing a steady increase in product customization. As a result, more and more production facilities must now be converted in shorter and shorter timeframes. Help comes in the form of digitalized models and data that engineers, designers, the parties responsible for commissioning, and plant operators can draw on whenever necessary. The rigorous digitalization of engineering methods by automation specialist Heitec shows how this can reduce risks at the design stage, enable systems to be commissioned faster, and optimize processes while plants are still operating.

Thermoprocessing technology and the digital age – an attempt at a status report

Thermoprocessing technology and the digital age – an attempt at a status report

Autor: Günter Valder

The megatrend known as “Industry 4.0” is not clearly defined, and it is difficult, not least for this reason, to determine one’s own position in relation to it. It appears that thermoprocessing technology is no exception to this rule, if one merely considers the sheer quantity of information and discussion offerings pitched by the relevant industry associations. However, it can be shown that thermoprocessing technology has kept pace with developments since the microprocessor found its way into production equipment. Accordingly, no revolutionary new developments will be required at the engineering level to bring thermoprocessing technology into alignment with “Industry 4.0” standards.

Higher concentrations of hydrogen in natural gas and their impact on industrial combustion systems

Higher concentrations of hydrogen in natural gas and their impact on industrial combustion systems

Autoren: Jörg Leicher / Tim Nowakowski / Anne Giese / Klaus Görner

In recent years, the power-to-gas approach has been proposed as a promising way to store large amounts of electricity by producing hydrogen via electrolysis and then possibly inject it into the natural gas grid. As a consequence, end users of natural gas across all sectors could be confronted with higher and fluctuating concentrations of H2 in the locally available natural gas and there are concerns, particularly in the thermal processing industries, how these changes in the fuel composition might impact the product qualities, efficiencies and NOX emissions of gas-fired manufacturing processes. In a German research project, Gas- und Wärme-Institut Essen e. V. (GWI) investigated the impact of higher and fluctuating hydrogen contents (up to 50 vol.-%) on a variety of industrial burner systems, using both simulation and experimental methods. The effects on operational aspects such as combustion behaviour, flame monitoring and pollutant emissions were analyzed.

Higher energy efficiency by using a sweeping flame aluminium melting system

Higher energy efficiency by using a sweeping flame aluminium melting system

Autor: Benjamin Köster

Aluminium is the 3rd most abundant material in earth´s crust. Aluminium metal has a strong affinity for oxygen and because of this affinity aluminium does not occur as a metal naturally in nature. Therefore you may ask how and why is it possible to use pure oxygen with natural gas to melt aluminium without increased oxidation. It is achieved through proper application of oxygen burner technology within an aluminium melting or holding furnace.
