What Benefits Does Induction heating Offer?
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
A single position multiple-turn pancake shaped coil was built to generate the required heating for the application. Initial tests were conducted to optimize the power delivered to the part.
A custom-designed single position multiple-turn oval coil was built to generate the required heating for the preheating application. Initially, a helical coil design was used which did heat the part faster, but the pattern wasn’t uniform.
A custom-designed single position multiple-turn helical coil was built to generate the required heating for the application. Initial tests were conducted to optimize the power delivered to the part.
To heat non-magnetic steel tubing for an application in the energy storage market.
To heat surgical tools to burn-off the nylon coating; the client had been using a torch for this application. Within seconds of the power being turned on, the coating on the tool began to smoke and soon started to bubble.
Using induction to heat magnetic steel cutting tools for removal of carbide cutting tips. Induction efficiently and precisely heats the client's part in a controlled manner delivering only the required heat.
In static tests, it was observed that it took 2.5 seconds to heat an 11” (279 mm) length of sample wire to target temperature.
A custom-designed single position multiple-turn helical coil was built to generate the required heating for this application.
A custom-designed single position multiple-turn pancake coil was built to generate the required heating for this application.
The client wants to replace their resistive steel pipe heating process; it takes 15 minutes to reach the desired temperature.
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.
