Induga expands existing copper alloy casting line in Bulgaria
Induga has been awarded to expand an existing crucible furnace melting and casting line in order to independently operate the two existing crucible furnaces in the future. For this purpose, the second furnace receives additional equipment such as its own charging, water recooling, power electrics for 3000 kW with state-of-the-art IGBT technology and a new furnace insert body for 25 t. Both furnaces are equipped with energy-saving coils developed by Otto Junker, which can achieve for copper energy savings of up to 10%. The customer has been using this type of coil on one furnace since 2012 and has been able to confirm the aforementioned results, which was the reason for using them permanently on both systems in the future.
The customer can thus almost double its production for copper special alloys.
After receiving an order last year for a new brass melting furnace to expand the brass casting line, Induga received now the second contract to significantly expand their foundry output.
