Induction Wire Heating & Forming for Nitinol Fixtures | Ambrell

Featured Image

Ambrell Induction Heating Applications Lab


A client had been using an oven for heating a fixture for Nitinol wire heating and forming. They turned to Ambrell to see if induction could reduce their twelve-minute heating time while saving energy and floor space. The client sent parts to THE LAB at Ambrell and took advantage of complimentary applications testing from expert applications engineers. 

THE LAB determined that an Ambrell EASYHEATTM 6 kW 150-400 kHz induction heating system with a specially-designed single position multiple-turn channel coil would be optimal for this application. The engineers at THE LAB determined that heating could be completed within seven minutes with an Ambrell EASYHEAT induction heating system. That heating time easily outperformed oven heating. 

 

Speed is the primary reason the client is switching to induction heating. Additionally, induction requires significantly less of a footprint than an oven and it is more energy efficient since only the part is heated. Finally, induction systems often have lower maintenance costs than ovens as there isn't downtime due to required maintenance such as relining.
