A custom-designed single position multi-turn helical coil was built to generate the required heating for the application.
The client requested a system that would meet their time objectives which the heat easily did, boosting the client’s throughput.
The coil selected is not only capable of heating the 7/8”/22 mm tube, but also a smaller tube that the client needs to heat.
Heat steel cutting bits with diamond-carbide inserts for brazing and de-brazing; the end products are cutting tools
This configuratoin achieved the client’s objective. The channel coil – specially designed by lab at Induction foster– was critical to the application’s success.
Application engineers determined placing a turn that is targeted to the tube inside the part would optimize heating for this application. This heats the tube while the flange is being heated enabling both parts to achieve the required temperature concurrently.
Induction is able to rapidly heat the parts to the required temperature, especially with the heat’s Auto Tap feature. The Induction foster Applications Lab used their expertise to create the right solution for the system and the system hardware.
Produces repeatable, rapid and accurate heating cycles making it ideal for in-line production processes
Heating took less than 30 seconds, is highly repeatable and there is no open flame, clear benefits over flame heating. it a safer method of heating than torch heating
Heating took 30 seconds (or less), which can’t be matched when using a torch. This client was using an old induction system from another vendor, and the Induction foster system provided considerably faster heating
