Our new white paper on "Using Induction Heating with Electric Motor and Electric Vehicle Manufacturing" is now available. Check out the introduction to get a sense of this new document written by Dr. Girish Dahake from THE LAB at Ambrell:
A client came to THE LAB at Ambrell with a heat staking application involving heating a knurled steel shaft prior to staking into plastic. This shaft is used in the hinge of a consumer device. Controlling heat to the lower portion of the shaft was critical to this client, as they needed to preserve the lubricant applied to the unheated end.
A manufacturer in the medical industry came to THE LAB at Ambrell with a heat staking application involving a arthroscopic device. They needed to use induction to bond the device's sheath to the collet. Fast, localized heating that didn't impact fixturing were key considerations for this company, and ultimately the rationale for choosing induction heating from Ambrell.
A pallet manufacturer needed to heat magnetic steel to 300 ºF (149 ºC) for insertion into a polypropylene board and turned to THE LAB at Ambrell to design a solution. THE LAB determined an Ambrell EKOHEAT® 40 kW, 50-150 kHz induction heating system with a remote workhead and single-turn channel coil would work well for this metal-to-plastic insertion application.
