Heating rods for thread rolling to create fasteners

This is part of an automated line. The system was sized and the coil was designed to ensure 45 parts per minute can be heated to the temperature required for hot forming.

Heating threaded area of fastener

Induction heating is localized only to the threaded area, decreases production time with a flameless process and delivers even distribution of heating

Heating fastener blanks for thread rolling

Induction heating provides faster cycle times and extended tool life with preheat step, fands-free heating that involves no operator skill for manufacturing

Heating Steel parts for hot heading

Induction heating provides hands-free heating that involves no operator skill for manufacturing, direct application of the heat on the work piece with precision and consistency, even distribution of heating with low pressure and minimal residual part stress

Heating wire for hot heading

Induction heating provides hands-free heating that involves no operator skill for manufacturing, elimination of springback effect, extended die life, better grain flow and microstructure with even distribution of heating

Pre-heating three rods for hot heading

Induction heating provides improved production rates with minimal defects, reduced need for post production tempering and heat treating and even distribution of heating

Pre-heating single rod for hot heading

A seven turn helical coil is used to heat the rod. The rod is placed inside the coil and power is applied for two seconds providing enough heat to penetrate the inner core

Heating stainless steel rod for hot forming

Induction heating provides for hands-free heating that involves no operator skill for manufacturing, improved production rates with minimal defects, low pressure and minimal residual part stress with even distribution of heating

Stainless Steel 'J' Tape

Induction heating provides for hands-free heating that involves no operator skill for manufacturing, improved production rates with minimal defects, low pressure and minimal residual part stress with even distribution of heating

Pre Heating Mold Release Push Rod For Forging

To heat the ends of steel rods to 1800°F prior to a forging operation. Processing of the rods includes heating, pressing in a two part die to forge the push rod end, and a final heating in a channel coil to temper the rods and relieve the forging stresses.

Pre Heating Steel For Forging Horse Shoes

Induction heating provides for hands-free heating that involves no operator skill for manufacturing, improved production rates with minimal defects, low pressure and minimal residual part stress with even distribution of heating

Band annealing on Titanium fasteners

Our bar-end annealing systems provide operating frequencies from 400 kHz for hot-heading of small diameter fasteners to 2 kHz for larger cross-section beams or bars. Systems can be incorporated with pick-and-place robotics to deliver a flameless process,with heating limited to a specific area.

About Induction Heating

Induction heating is a fast, efficient, precise and repeatable non-contact method for heating metals or other electrically-conductive materials. The material may be a metal such as brass, aluminum, copper or steel or it can be a semiconductor such as silicon carbide,carbon or graphite. To heat non-conductive materials such as plastics or glass, induction is used to heat an electrically-conductive susceptor, typically graphite, which then transfers the heat to the non-conducting material.
