AMAP Excursion to Otto Junker GmbH, Lammersdorf

On 10th September 2014 members of AMAP visited Otto Junker’s GmbH at Lammersdorf and attended a presentation of their brand-new induction furnace featuring two separate coils and flexible inverter technology. Dr. Wilfried Schmitz, head of R&D at Otto Junker, and his colleagues gave an impressive demonstration of the furnace capabilities to stir the melt fairly independently of the heating power. A tour through the coil manufacturing process completed this highly instructive excursion.
