Fastener Manufacturer Orders Induction Heating System
Ambrell sold two EASYHEAT 10-kW induction heating systems for thread rolling to a fastener manufacturerfor the aerospace industry. The application involves rolling an array of materials including Inconel, Hastelloy and titanium. The outer diameter of the rods is up to 30 mm (1.2 inches) and the length is up to 51 mm (2 inches). Part sizes can vary, so the induction heating system needed to account for that fact. The rods, depending on the material, need to heat up to 482°C (900°F). The companyneeded to test the systems in the U.S. before implementing them in China.
