Since 1986, our engineering expertise in developing induction metal-to-plastic bonding solutions has been applied by many automotive manufacturers worldwide as these manufacturers look to reduce weight, noise, and costs while improving fuel economy.
Whether your process involves heat staking of threaded metal inserts into plastic or injection molding, we have the right induction heating solution for your application.
This Month's Induction heat-staking Application Notes
Induction offers dramatically faster heating when compared to ultrasonics; faster heating means there is the potential to dramatically increase production rates with a highly repeatable and easy-to integrate processes.
Induction heating provides 'greener' manufacturing of pallets using reusable, recyclable materials, hands-free heating that involves minimal operator skill for manufacturing and even distribution of heating
Induction heating provides hands-free heating that involves no operator skill for manufacturing, only the metal shaft is heated so the motor is not affected, increased production due to rapid heating, decreased failure rate, originally used glue which ran into motor and caused failure and stronger bond
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.

Induction Heating Work Coils
The work coil is the component in the induction heating system that defines how effective and how efficiently your work piece is heated.
