Ambrell recently delivered a 250-kW EKOHEAT induction
heating system with eight encapsulated multiple-turn helical coils to a
fastener manufacturer. The company was looking for steel rods between 0.75-3
inches to be preheated to 2100ºF within a cycle time of 25 seconds for forging
or hot heading. Ambrell’s system is able to meet this objective. The fastener
manufacturer was able to leverage Ambrell’s Applications Lab, which performed parts
testing to determine the optimal system for the application.
