In the field of aluminum extrusion, HybroHeat® furnace technology combines the advantages of cost-efficient preheating of log material in a gas furnace and precise temperature setting by means of induction technology. This new development is a result of a joint effort between IAS GmbH and OMAV S.p.A.. Since the end of September 2020, OMAV is part of SMS group as a wholly owned subsidiary.
The concept is based on proven technologies from both companies in which it joins efficient gas furnaces and saws from OMAV with high-performance induction plants from IAS in a single line. The advantages for the operator are, among others, lower investment cost resulting from a compact design and less operating costs achieved by reduced idle times.
