Ambrell sold an EASYHEAT induction heating system to a carbide tooling manufacturer. The client will use the system for brazing PCD (polycrystalline diamond) inserts to carbide for manufacturing cutting tools. The company was developing a new process to braze cutting tools ranging from 1/8 inch (3.2 mm) to over 1 inch (25.4 mm) in diameter. Induction was chosen because it can heat the parts to temperature in less than the targeted time of 20 seconds, and it’s highly controllable so there’s no risk of overheating the carbide. This system will allow the manufacturer to heat parts with different diameters and lengths.
