Induction Shrink Fitting a Motor Shaft and Roller

Nov 20, 2020 10:37:26 AM / by Brett Daly posted in Shrink Fitting, induction shrink fitting


 

A client contacted THE LAB at Ambrell needing to heat a roller assembly to shrink fit it to a motor shaft. THE LAB determined that an Ambrell EASYHEATTM 2.4 kW, 150-400 kHz induction heating system with a three-turn helical coil would be best for this induction shrink fitting application based on the client's heating requirements. The target temperature for the application was 450 ºF (232 ºC).
