EFD Induction USA recently won major orders from two American Tier 1 automotive suppliers for induction scanning systems for the hardening of sun gears and output shafts. Each system comprises an induction scanner, power source and various optional features. Each system is powered by EFD Induction Sinac power sources and features CNC-based control systems and a closed-loop cooling system.
The first order comprises an EFD Induction rotary table (HardLine RT 550) hardening system for treating sun gears and a vertical scanner system (HardLine VM 1000) for hardening output shafts. The second order is for two vertical scanner systems, a HardLine VS 300 for hardening sun gears and a HardLine VL 1000 for treating shafts.
