Can induction heating be used in thread rolling?

Fastener manufacturing with induction heating

Induction heating can easily be integrated into the thread rolling production process and has proven to be a more rapid and consistent method of heat that leads to superior repeatability and increased production efficiency in high-volume parts manufacturing.

Benefits of using induction heating for thread rolling include:

  • Precise even heating of only the threaded part of the fastener for less material stress
  • Higher productivity: decreased cycle times mean increased production rates
  • Higher quality parts: produces stronger, more durable threads
  • Economical: reduces tool wear for longer tool life
  • Efficient: instant on/instant off, no oven ramp up time or heating the surrounding space
