Designing the Quench System

Use the Quench System tool to create quench zones that make up the quench system for the profile.

Inspire Extrude models a quench system as a series of one or more quench zones. Once a quench system is designed, it can be saved to the quench system database and reused with other models.

Quench systems used by extrusion presses are often made of many zones. Each zone could have a different type of quench mechanism and associated parameters. Inspire Extrude supports four types of quench zones.
  • Spray cooling
  • Air nozzle cooling
  • Air fan cooling
  • Immersion quenching
