Induction fastener heating Benefits 

  • Meets tight production tolerances with precise localized heat to small areas creating pinpoint accuracy

  • Increases production rates with faster heating cycles

  • Reduces defect rates with repeatable, reliable heat

  • Eliminates variability from operator-to-operator, shift-to-shift

  • Maintains metallurgical characteristics of the individual metals

Heating rods for thread rolling to create fastenersHeating 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 fastenerHeating 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 rollingHeating 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 headingHeating 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 headingHeating 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 headingPre-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 headingPre-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 formingHeating 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' TapeStainless 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 ForgingPre Heating Mold Release Push Rod For Forging

To heat the ends of steel rods to 1800°F using induction 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 induction heating in a channel coil to temper the rods and relieve the forging stresses.

Pre Heating Steel For Forging Horse ShoesPre Heating Steel For Forging Horse Shoes

Induction forging 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 fastenersBand 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.
