Aeronautics & Aerospace:
It's no surprise that it takes the world's fastest melting system to produce the world's fastest planes.
When one of our customers, a world leader in precision investment castings for jet engines, required an incredibly quick and accurate melt to create the jet turbine rotor for the U.S. Air Force's SR71 "Blackbird," they trusted an Inductotherm induction melting system to do just that. When your technology must reach new heights, look to Inductotherm to achieve a new generation of single-crystal and directionally solidified cast super alloys and select the system right for you.
It takes less than a minute to slow a 120-ton Space Shuttle from its 293 mph maximum landing speed to a full stop. And our customers carbon-carbon brake disks can take the heat, up to 3,000 degrees F that is, for a maximum energy landing. The same technology provides for braking a fully loaded Boeing 747-400 for more than 1,500 landings.
Inductotherm, the world's largest producer of induction furnaces for metal melting and graphite heating, is proud to furnish the graphite heating systems our customers need to produce its remarkable and high-quality composites. Whether you process one ton of graphite composites a year, or ten tons a shift, Inductotherm can design a heating system to meet your requirements.
