Local furnace and power supplier manufacturer Saftronics Induction Heating has relocated to the N4 Gateway Industrial Park in Pretoria, Gauteng. The new 1 000 m² facility comes equipped with a state-of-the-art test facility and a 10 ton crane, allowing the company to broaden its horizons and be involved in large scale projects.
Saftronics Induction Heating is headed up by Deon van Staden, who has been in the furnace manufacturing industry for over 38 years. The company was formed when van Staden’s company Solid State Induction Heating joined forces with Saftronics (Pty) Ltd in September 2012.
Saftronics Induction Heating manufactures box furnaces, lift-swing furnaces and induction billet heaters for the induction heating and melting industries. However, according to van Staden they are able to customise a solution specific to a client’s needs.
“We have just completed a project at Transnet Foundry in Bloemfontein where we installed two 1250kW melters with two 3 ton furnaces. In this case we incorporated the existing cooling system, furnace frames and hydraulics into the project. Utilising our resources from within the group the transformer was rewound by our transformer division in order to achieve the required voltage output.”
The Saftronics Group has been operating from Johannesburg, Gauteng for nearly 50 years in the power electronics industry.
