Company Replaces Cold Bending, Oven Tempering with Induction Process
Ambrell installed an EKOHEAT 65-kW/100-kHz induction heating system for stress relieving steel bars. The client was cold bending bars and then tempering them with an oven. The steel bar requires a 50-mm heat zone. The induction heating system heatsthe steel bars to temperature within five seconds, enabling the customer to increase production. Heating the bars with induction is also significantly more energy efficient. The company also purchasedan optical pyrometer, controller and eVIEW induction heating software. eVIEW enables constant temperature monitoring and data logging.
