Induction metal-glass sealing 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
Induction heating provides precise, consistent heat to very small parts resulting in repeatable, quality seals. By heating with medium frequency, arcing (which occurs at high frequencies) is avoided.
The solder formed a relatively uniform domed seal around the fiber despite the asymmetry of the open C coil. It took under 10 seconds to heat the part to soldering temperature
Soldering soda lime glass metal edged windows to steel time
Induction heating provides ability to use same equipment for both assembly and repair, hands-free heating that involves no operator skill for manufacturing, and uniform control of heat from part to part
Induction melting provides hands-free heating that involves no operator skill for manufacturing, amounts of glass are precisely controlled by the glass preforms and even flow of glass creates aesthetically pleasing bond.
To heat a stainless steel housing to 18750 F in order to fuse a piece of R6 glass to the inside of the housing.
To heat selected areas of a glass lined steel tank to 16000 F in order to perform repairs of cracks and chips.
