Induction Heating a Gear for a Shrink Fitting Application [VIDEO]

Featured Image

 

A gear being heated with induction for shrink fitting

 

In the latest application video from THE LAB at Ambrell, a steel gear is heated to 400 °F (204 °C) for a shrink fitting application. An Ambrell EASYHEATTM 6 kW induction heating power supply is used. You'll see that temperature indicating paint -- which liquefies and turns clear when the target temperature is achieved -- is applied to two spots on the steel gear. 

 

 

 

As you saw, the heat cycle was 40 seconds for this shrink fitting application with an EASYHEAT 6 kW induction heating power supply. To view other videos, check out our shrink fitting videos page. If you'd like to have the applications lab test your part(s), visit the lab service request page.
