The customer is developing a university lab experiment to induction melt silicon and is still developing the process.
Induction Melting 30 lb(13.6 kg) & 60 lb(27.2 kg) lead ingots to form battery posts & connectors
A single turn coil encapsulated in custom blocks is used for sealing the tube. Two tubes are placed between the coil blocks and a 7lb (3.2kg) load is applied to the top of the coil.
The crucible is heated using an induction coil with a four turn pancake at the base that extends upward into a three turn helical coil.
Induction melting provides hands-free heating that involves no operator skill for manufacturing, repeatable, dependable results, more efficient and cost effective then gas furnace, does not heat up the manufacturing area and increases production.
Induction melting provides hands-free heating that involves no operator skill for manufacturing, amounts of glass are precisely controlled by the glass preforms and even flow of glass creates aesthetically pleasing bond.
Induction melting is the only feasible way to remove the plastic coating, leaving it in an unpolluted form for recycling. It is a faster process
The bonded assembly is placed (glass up) within a helical coil which circles the bonding slug. Induction heats the material to the melting point in 5-7 seconds.
