Forming a Large Steel Tube
Heating an area around elliptical hole in steel tube prior to forming; the client had been using a torch for this application.
Flattening/Bending Steel Tubes
Induction heats the tubes to forging temperature much more rapidly than an oven, targeting the precise portion of the part that requires heating every time, presenting a significant advantage over an oven
Forming a Magnetic Steel Part
Induction heated the part to forming temperature more rapidly than a torch. Induction targets the precise portion of the part that requires heating every time
Forging a magnetic steel rod
Testing determined that the magnetic steel rod heated to required temperature within 1.5 seconds with an EASYHEAT LI induction heating system.
Preheating a brass rod for forging
The client wanted to cut the cycle time it was getting from a torch in half, and the Ambrell induction process was able to meet that goal.
Preheating a billet for forging
The client needed to improve the cycle time of their gas furnace, and by preheating it prior to insertion into the furnace, time was saved and the client didn't have to invest in doubling the size of their furnace.
Pre Heating Mold Release Push Rod For Forging
To heat the ends of steel rods to 1800°F prior to a forging operation. Processing of the rods includes heating, pressing in a two part die to forge the push rod end, and a final heating in a channel coil to temper the rods and relieve the forging stresses.
Heating Inconel Billets for Forging
A four-turn helical coil is used to deliver uniform heat to the inconel billets. Both size billets heat to 2050°F (1121.1ºC) within 12 seconds.
Pre Heating Steel For Forging Horse Shoes
Induction heating provides for hands-free heating that involves no operator skill for manufacturing, improved production rates with minimal defects, low pressure and minimal residual part stress with even distribution of heating
