Increases in energy efficiency will be achieved thanks to a new furnace which, by means of an induction-based power transmission system, will allow highly flexible production. This increase in production flexibility addresses the current variability in demand for foundry products.
NIWE addresses these real and current problems by providing a new furnace, which will capture energy by inductive coupling. This will provide very fast transmission power from the network to the furnace. This energy will be supplied to the heating system, which, depending on the casting material, could consist of resistance or induction heating.
The speed of the power transmission system, as well as the wireless operation, will allow the use of smaller ovens. In this way, the reserve of molten material for feeding the molds will be smaller, and therefore the energy required to keep it molten.
In addition, the cordless oven will provide flexible operation, allowing quick modification of the factory layout, which is based on simple interchangeable ovens of different types and sizes, depending on demand.
