Bonding a Gasket to a Sombrero Nut
A multi-turn pancake coil is used to preheat the nut. It is then transported to the next station where it is pressed onto a gasket for bonding
Bonding Metal Housings to Plastic Holders for Lenses
Induction heating improves processing quality by delivering uniform heat to two parts at once using a single-turn peanut' coil. Localized heat enables easy alignment of optical components during final assembly
Heating Catheter Tipping Die
To heat an aluminum catheter tipping die to above 2850F within 2 to 5 seconds for the forming of catheter material.
Annealing steel tubes in an inert atmosphere
Induction annealing heats steel tubes to 2000 ºF (1093 ºC) in an inert atmosphere for very small areas within precise production tolerances. A two-turn concentrator coil is used to heat the stainless steel tube. The annealing process takes place in an inert atmosphere to prevent oxidation.
Brazing steel dental tools
To heat a steel tip and shank assembly to 1300°F (704°C) within 3 seconds for brazing with induction heating instead of torch brazing.
Heating a catheter tipping die
A two turn plate concentrator coil is used to heat the die. To measure the temperature on the ID and establish the time-to-temperature relationship...
Hardening surgical blades
To quickly heat a steel surgical blade to 2000°F (1093°C) within 2 seconds so as to harden the blade edge.
Bonding Foil to a Plastic Bottle
It was confirmed that the aluminum heated sufficiently to create a bond between the foil and the bottle, meeting the client’s objective.
Heating Surgical Tools for Coating Burn Off
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.
