3 Ways to Use Induction Heating for Fastener Production

3 Ways to Use Induction Heating for Fastener Production

Heating with induction is an innovative method which has proven itself in numerous industries for numerous manufacturing processes. Why? the answer is: induction heating is an efficient, effective, repeatable, non contact and safe process - perfect for fastener heating. Now, there are many ways to implement it into a manufacturing process. But what can Ambrell induction heating do for fastener manufacturers? Let's find out. 

1. Hot Heading

Induction is used for preheating bolt and screw heads prior to forging. Benefits of pre-heating with induction are: consistency, quality, increased productivity and lower footprint through energy savings.

2. Thread Rolling

Thread rolling – using a thread roll die to form a thread into a heated fastener – has gained popularity over thread cutting. Thread rolling pushes the material into shape against a threadroll die rather than cutting, which reduces material waste and stress to the fastener. Precision heating, higher quality of the fastener and increased efficiency are benefits of using induction for thread rolling.

3. Thread Patching

Induction heating is ideal for curing the paint or powder material used in thread patching. Rapid heating to temperature, controllability and the high quality process advocate for induction curing process.
