Using Induction Heating for Heat Staking

Feb 18, 2019 2:31:05 PM / by Brett Daly posted in Metal-to-Plastic, heat staking



Heat staking, which is also known as metal-to-plastic insertion, involves preheating an insert with induction and then pressing it into a hole in a plastic part. This is accomplished by positioning the induction coil over the hole and then holding the insert in the coil for a short period of time. When the correct temperature is achieved, the insert is pressed into the plastic. A narrow zone of plastic then melts and flows into the knurls of the insert. The plastic re-solidifies resulting in a complete assembly that often has much better mechanical properties than what results from alternative heating methods. The inserts are often brass or steel.

Using Induction for Nanoparticle Heating

Feb 14, 2019 11:48:53 AM / by Brett Daly

Nanoparticles are particles between 1 and 100 nanometers (nm) in size that are of significant interest to the scientific community because of their applications in a wide range of fields. For example, induction heating systems are used in hyperthermia (or thermotherapy) to generate alternating magnetic fields in the laboratory to elevate and manage the temperature of a solution of nanoparticles.

Application Insight: Brazing a Copper Tube and a Steel Plate

Jan 31, 2019 4:08:05 PM / by Brett Daly posted in Induction Heating, brazing


A company was looking to design a heating process for a new device they were developing, and they reached out to THE LAB at Ambrell to take advantage of their complimentary applications testing. The process involved brazing a copper tube and a steel plate. While this was a new process, the client also tested a torch as a part of their due diligence, and repeatability and quality were their top two priorities.
