Aluminum is ideal for use as aerospace plate because it is lightweight, flexible and recyclable.It is also becoming useful for the automotive industry which is looking to the same advantages.
To manufacture automotive and aerospace plates, aluminum producers have to process all cold rolled series of aluminum alloys strips with a thickness within 0.5 up to 4 mm.
Production of high strength and high ductile aluminum alloys requests a continuous heat treatment process to get the mechanical characteristics of the material.
The annealing and solution heat treatment is followed by the water quench, which allows production of high strength and high ductility heat treatable alloys. The air quench brings the coils to room temperature.
REDEX Group provides fully integrated heat treatment lines and annealing lines for a full range of aluminum alloys dedicated to automotive and aerospace industries.
As such heat treatments of aluminum alloys requires temperatures more than 500°C close to the melting point of the material, the strip inside the furnace is transported with our Lay-on-air® technology.
REDEX Group, as a leading technology supplier of complete strip processing lines, is well known in the aluminum industry. REDEX Group lines are well designed with highly precise equipment, robust, maintenance friendly.
REDEX Group can offer complete fully integrated lines dedicated to all aluminum heat treatment for a turnkey operation. This includes the engineering, design and supply of all necessary items as coils management or coils transport between lines, entry and exit sections, complete strip motion of the line including loopers, bridles, steering units but also key equipment as pre cleaning, heat treatment section alkaline cleaning section, Levelflex®, dry lubrication.
Installation and start up of the complete line including the automation is also part of our scope of supply.
REDEX Group is a European Engineering company offering Mechatronics solutions worldwide.
