Ajax TOCCO ships bright annealing furnace

Ajax TOCCO Magnethermic, a subsidiary of Park-Ohio Holdings Corporation®, has recently shipped a bright annealing induction furnace to a major stainless steel tube manufacturer in the Northeast United States. Ajax TOCCO is a specialist in providing induction heating and processing solutions for bar and tube applications, including bright annealing. The bright annealing system progressively heats the stainless steel tube to high temperatures in an atmosphere of inert gases, and then anneals the tube in a cooling chamber to reduce the hardness of the steel in order to achieve ductility for further processing. It has the ability to produce a high quality product with a ready-to-ship surface finish. The equipment supplied consists of a Hydrogen atmosphere heating and cooling system, utilizing an Ajax TOCCO 75 kW Pacer T IGBT induction power supply. The system is capable of processing tubing from .25â€? – .625â€? outside diameter.
