ABSTRACT --- Modern extrusion plants should have the equipment and
methods to provide them with a rational flow of materials, reduce product
handling in different phases, improve quality, and attain repeatability and a
reduction in the time the process lasts. We have designed the new
continuous ageing oven on the basis of these premises. This oven extends
along the extrusion line and removes the pile up of skips, reduces paths
travelled by skips to product output, makes profile ageing a high-quality
process, operates automatically, and reduces energy costs and process
time. Mechanical maintenance and breakdown times are also reduced.
