Induction Heating of Billets: The Thermal Influence of Skid Rails

The design of skid rails used in continuous induction billet heating systems is more complex than one might think. Due to the appreciable influence that skid rails exert on billet temperature uniformity, the ability to predict their thermal implications is valuable in efforts to improve induction billet heating quality and the final reliability of forged products.
