Immersion Quench Zone

An immersion quench zone is a rectangular box with coolant, and the extruded profile goes through this coolant. In this process, it is completely immersed in the coolant.

    The secondary toolbar with quench zone types is displayed.
  2. Click the Immersion icon.
    Adjust the zone position over the profile using the move tool in the micro dialog to move the box in X,Y, Z directions.
    A rectangular quench zone will be created. Micro dialogs to edit the box dimensions will be populated along width, length and height of the box. Another micro dialog with immersion zone parameters will be populated to edit the coolant temperature and zone start location.
  3. Press Esc to exit the immersion zone context.
