If you want standard AA6xxx series alloys, continuous homogenizing is your first choice. Most of these billets are homogenized in one of the 120 continuous furnaces manufactured by Hertwich and installed around the world. We configure all our homogenizing plants to meet all your wants and needs relating to throughput, floor area, and technical features. However, batch-type homogenizing is still the best technology for some applications: alloys which require long holding times of 6 - 12 hours, large-only log diameters, frequent temperature changes, or intermittent production. That explains why, in recent years, Hertwich has supplied several batch homogenizing plants featuring state-of-the-art technology. As a result, they achieve outstanding metallurgical quality and productivity.
