A manufacturer of sink products had been using a torch for brazing their brass assemblies. However, repeatability had become an issue so they turned to THE LAB at Ambrell to test induction heating for their brazing application.
A client in the food processing industry had been using an alternative method for knife heating, but wanted to consider induction because it's fast and comparatively safe. Consequently, they turned to THE LAB at Ambrell to assess the viability of their application.
Be sure to watch the latest induction heating application video from THE LAB at Ambrell. It involves hardening a fastener tip with an Ambrell EKOHEAT® induction heating system and a custom-designed channel coil. As you can see in the video, heating the stainless steel/carbon tip took less than three seconds.
Annealing is a process where heat is applied to a material to increase its malleability and make it more workable. Or simply put, a metal is typically heated to a specified temperature and cooled, which results in a softened material that is more easily formed. Induction is one heating method that is commonly used for annealing.
