Annealing an Aluminum Fuel Tank Fill Neck

Apr 16, 2021 3:10:32 PM / by Brett Daly posted in Induction Annealing, Applications Lab, annealing



A client contacted THE LAB at Ambrell as they needed to anneal aluminum fuel tank fill necks to 650 ºF (343 ºC) for bending. THE LAB determined that an Ambrell EKOHEAT® 30 kW, 50-150 kHz induction heating system with an eight-turn helical coil would be the right solution for the customer. The frequency for the application was 75 kHz.

A company contacted THE LAB at Ambrell to anneal the ends of metal stamp sets of various sizes with induction heating. They had been using a torch but wanted a safer and more repeatable heating method. The client needed to heat S7 steel of varying rectangular cross-sectional sizes to 1,400-1,800 ºF (760-982 ºC). THE LAB determined that an EASYHEATTM 7.5 kW, 150-400 kHz induction heating system with four-turn or five-turn helical induction heating coils (depending on part size) would be the right solution for the client and their requirements.

Preheating for Forging of Steel Pins

Nov 13, 2020 9:24:11 AM / by Brett Daly posted in Applications Lab, forging



A client needed to heat magnetic steel pins (spokes) for forging on a rim without heat treating and weakening the rim. They had been using a torch for this heating application and it took 20 seconds per pin. THE LAB at Ambrell determined that an EASYHEATTM 10 kW, 150-400 kHz induction heating power supply with a workhead and three-turn helical coil specifically designed for this application would meet this application's requirements.
