Adhesive Curing Steel Washers with an Automotive Induction Heater

Dec 21, 2015 3:40:35 PM / by Brett Daly posted in Automotive Applications, EASYHEAT, bonding, induction curing


The application involved heating a steel washer to 200 ºF (93 ºC) to enable adhesive curing. This heating application will be part of an automated manufacturing process for an automotive industry part. The Ambrell Application Laboratory did testing and determined an EASYHEATTM 2 kW, 150-400 kHz induction heating system equipped with a remote workhead would be optimal for this application.

Induction Heating for Automotive Brazing - Flexible Metal Tubes

Nov 23, 2015 4:24:00 AM / by Justyna Bakker posted in Induction Brazing, Automotive Applications

Flexible tubes and hoses are increasingly an essential subset of a number of tube and pipe installations in the automotive industry. A flexible hose assembly not only provides flexibility in manual handling applications but also compensates for regular or constant movement. These hoses also absorb vibrations and often correct misalignment between rigid connections.

 

Flexible metal hoses in comparison to plastic or rubber hoses can handle a wide variety of chemicals, work at elevated temperatures, are often less susceptible to gas permeation and have the advantage of a wide variety end fittings. Flexible metal hose is typically produced in either strip wound or corrugated type based on its design and application. While the former has higher mechanical strength the latter is able to withstand higher pressure (using a stainless steel wire braid over the hose) and provide maximum leak tightness.

 

Ambrell EASYHEAT and EKOHEAT product lines are designed and developed to provide customized induction heating solutions for a number of applications in the manufacture of flexible metal hoses.
