The project had the object of evaluating the industrial rentability of a process technically known after preliminary studies but for which the economical returns had to be confirmed.
The following facilities have been designed, realised and installed: two modules, one per side, carrying C shaped inductors; a power converter and cooling circuits; a programmable controller.
The efficiency is better than 70%. The evaluation of quality improvement of the edges of the strip both in term of surface aspect (stainless steel) and in term of mechanical characteristics (Carbon Steel) have confirmed a significant gain (10 mm to 20 mm per side).
When industrial operation will be completed, this potential gain will give an improvement of the yield with benefits in terms of costs and energy saving. g.
