Bonding Steel Cannulas
For each size cannula, the power delivered to the part was optimized to create a bond between the cannula and its bushing, without discoloring the steel of the cannula or causing the bushing to become opaque
Bonding Aluminum & Carbon Fiber Coupons
Three custom-designed single position multiple-turn coils were built to generate the required heating for this bonding application (helical, pancake and u-shaped coils).
Debonding Rubber Gaskets, End Rings
It took a modest amount of time to debond the rubber gasket from the metal end ring in this release/debonding induction application. Heat is delivered only where needed.
De-bonding a magnetic steel paint can lid
The goal of the induction bonding process is to quickly and cleanly remove the can lid and to pour out paint to reformulate. Induction enabled rapid removal of the paint can lids.
Debonding inserts for manifold
A four-turn two-position helical coil is used to debond the inserts from the plastic. The coil is placed against the manifold and power is applied to the two inserts for 15 seconds to soften the plastic...
Sealing a Nylon Shell for a fuel vapor Assembly
Filter modules are assembled on the fixture with ring gasket. Pressure is applied to the modules, modules are rotated and induction heating is started. After 10-12 seconds, heating is halted and the modules are removed from the fixture.
Metal to plastic bonding of beer kegs
A single-turn solenoid coil is placed around the assembled beer keg and heated for 35 seconds as the keg is rotated. Pressure is applied with a press on the top rim whilst the keg is rotating, forming a seal between the aluminium mesh and the two halves of the beer keg.
Bonding Metal Housings to Plastic Holders for Lenses
Induction heating improves processing quality by delivering uniform heat to two parts at once using a single-turn peanut' coil. Localized heat enables easy alignment of optical components during final assembly
Bonding Solar Panel Shingles
To heat the stainless steel substrate of a solar panel shingle in order to melt the polymer encapsulant, allowing two shingles to bond together with a 3 inch overlap.
