How Should I Specify the Billet Axial Taper?

Initial temperature of the billet is specified using:
  1. Billet Preheat and
  2. Billet Axial Taper.

The value of the billet preheat should be the value of the billet temperature at the Billet-Die end.

For example, if the billet preheat is 500 and billet axial taper is 70, then initial billet temperature will be 430 °C at the dummy block end and 500°C at the die end.
