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?
