HOT FORMING

Discover The Advantages Of Induction Heating!

Induction 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

Benefits

Here are the advantages of hot forming with induction heating:

  • springback effect is eliminated
  • ductility is improved
  • low pressure & minimal residual part stress
  • better grain flow & microstructure
  • improved mechanical properties
  • reduced need for post production tempering & heat treating
  • improved production rates with minimal defects

Expertise

Induction heating in hot forming is applied for several different purposes:

Heading - forming a head on blot, screw or rivet

Blanking - cutting a whole piece from sheet metal

Punching - cutting a hole

Slotting - cutting of elongated holes

Perforating - cutting a group of holes

Trimming - cutting away excess metal

Shearing - cutting in straight line across piece

Bending - producing single, double, straight flange, edge hem, curl or double hem bends

 

In order for the hot forming process to succeed, an application should be tested including the following variables. Ambrell's experienced applications engineers will provide you with the necessary advice and recommendation.
