Ambrell will exhibit at theInternational Association for Crystal Growth Conference (ICCGE) once again. This year's edition will be held at the Keystone Resort and Conference Center in Keystone, CO USA and the vendor area will be open July 29-31.
A client from the automotive industry wanted to assess moving from torches to induction for a preheating for welding application. Their primary reason for evaluating switching to induction was speed of heating. With a torch, heating took 20 minutes and they figured induction could dramatically improve that metric and in turn increase throughput.
A fastener manufacturer contacted THE LAB at Ambrell as they needed to preheat steel wire prior to hot heading. The end products were screws. They wanted to heat steel wire to 350 °F (177 °C) within seconds. They turned to induction because they wanted to increase tool life with hot heading, as cold heading is harder on tooling.
Ambrell Induction Heating Solutions will exhibit at THERMPROCESS in Düsseldorf, Germany. The trade fair and symposium will take place 25 to 29 June and we'll be in stand 9E44. This is the 11th International Trade Fair and Symposium for Thermo Process Technology, with most visitors coming from Europe (57%) and Asia (26%). Heating technology, environmental and resource preservation, and energy efficiency will be popular topics at the symposium.
