The SMS Elotherm induction machines for tube annealing consist of an induction heating section with an attached quenching device, followed by an induction annealing section to configure the desired hardness parameters. The most impressive features of the quench and temper lines from SMS Elotherm are their high efficiency, accuracy and versatility.
The quench and temper lines from SMS Elotherm can be quickly configured for new dimensions, steel grades or special features, such as tubes with upset-forged ends. High production rates (tonnes per hour) are possible with induction technology, even with variable lengths and diameters.
Thanks to the SMS Elotherm precision induction process, high uniformity can be achieved in tempering with regard to hardness, mechanical properties and microstructure.
