Innovations from Sandvik in focus at Thermprocess 2015

Three new, highly innovative heating products will be launched by Sandvik at the Thermprocess exhibition in Dusseldorf. The first ever Kanthal® Award will also be presented in connection with the exhibition. The award will be given to a nominee who has found a way to use products or services related to thermal processing in a sustainable way that has also improved the quality of life with regard to health and safety.

"We are facing an exciting period of growth for our entire product portfolio, delivering solutions ranging from traditional Kanthal products to complex heating systems," said Martin McIver, acting Marketing Manager.

"We think successful innovations often come from sharing ideas. This creates win-win solutions, and that is why we have initiated the Kanthal Award. The world faces new challenges in the future and a major one is using the planet's limited resources to support a continuously growing population."

"We think we can be part of solving this challenge and making the world a better place for everyone by supporting innovations that develop environmentally friendly energy sources or use energy in an efficient way," says Nicklas Nilsson, Vice President Sandvik Materials Technology and Head of Product Area Strip, Wire and Heating Technology.

Three new products have been added to the extensive program of heating products:

  • Kanthal® Flow Heater with an air/gas heat output of up to 1200°C (2190°F).
  • Fibrothal™ GSO, developed for use in really tough conditions but also with greatflexibility in power voltage, size and installation.
  • Superthal™ X heating panel, which is even more reliable and easy to use. Thanks to its new design the elements are stable during operation, thus prolonging the service life of the product even further.

Meet Sandvik in Hall 10, stand A39.

From 16 to 20 June, 2015 more than 7,900 visitors, half of them from countries outside Germany, will visit Thermprocess. This exhibition is the world's most important platform for the presentation of highly innovative technology and environmental concepts for industrial thermal processing plants.
