Applications

Through the electrotracing process, there is the possibility of reducing to a minimum the machining allowance, thereby obtaining smooth surfaces that in some instances allow the elimination of subsequent machining.

The edge of the plank is heated and preformed quickly, precisely and uniformly, only in respect of the necessary segment (picture 1), thereby decreasing the formation of dregs, with a resultant longer duration of moulds. It is moreover possible to carry out, through simple tuning operations, the heating and tracing of the plank at any intermediate point (picture 3); heating and total tracing of the segment to be moulded (picture 3); elongated tracing of large volumes in moderate mould, thanks to the supplementary central body (picture 4).

The cold part of the plank, whatever its form might be, is not influenced by the heating process, and the energy consumed during the processing phase is transformed into heat on the piece to be heated, with a resultant reduction in the energy cost.
