A client was designing a new process and needed a method for heating wires and strips for coating removal. The application was for a company in the transformer industry. They were concerned about speed, repeatability and safety, so they turned to induction heating, and they trusted THE LAB at Ambrell to design a process that met their specifications and budgetary requirements. 


THE LAB determined that an Ambrell EASYHEAT
TM 4 kW induction heating system would meet their speed requirements. It was observed that the enamel-coated parts heated as expected. The coating darkened to black when heated. It was then easily scrubbed off. The copper wires required between 5 and 10 seconds to heat the enamel coating for stripping.

 

The client benefitted from the rapid speed and impressive repeatability of induction along with induction's safety since it doesn't introduce a flame into the work environment.
