Pros of Precision Induction Annealing for Steel Hose Clamps

Induction heating can effectively deliver localized heat to parts of virtually all shapes and sizes. Recently, our applications engineers from THE LAB in Europe tested a clamp annealing application using an EKOHEAT® induction heating system.

 

First, let's provide a little background. Annealing with induction is a process that involves heating a material above its re-crystallization temperature. It is commonly used to make a sample more workable through increasing its ductility and reducing its hardness.

 

This application had challenging requirements: induction annealing the bended areas of only the steel hose clamps in 0.25 - 0.75 seconds per piece in batches of five. The temperature requirement was 350 °C (662 °F). After a series of complimentary tests from THE LAB, our engineers recommended a 15 kW system running at a frequency of 100 kHz.


Our induction heating solution will enhance the customer's productivity and throughput. Are you interested in putting induction technology to work at your plant?
