iTherm® Feed Ring is produced using tool steel forged or rolled blocks and HTS proprietary additive manufacturing technology.
It is a single body component with equal mechanical properties as tool steel monoblock.
Cooling channels can be freely designed according to cooling/heating requirements of the product, not by the limitations of using the conventional drilling method.
It is highly customizable to specific customer requirements.
More freedom designing cooling channels
In comparison with conventionally made feed ring, iTherm® Feed ring gives you extra flexibility to bring cooling channels near the critical zones.
Even heat distribution on the working surface
In comparison with conventionally made feed ring, using iTherm® Feed ring the heat is distributed much more evenly over the surface, so the ring is cooling down more evenly and quicker.
In comparison with conventionally made Feed Ring, iTherm® Feed Ring only has two connectors for cooling water (IN/OUT). This results in leakage elimination.
Faster biscuit solidification
In comparison with conventional Feed Ring, using iTherm® Feed Ring you gain time in the phase of biscuit solidification, decreasing the biscuit problems related downtimes.
between 10 and 30 W/cm2 of heat extraction.
