Pillar Induction manufactured and installed a solid-state-style 50-KHz power supply and heat-treat system for a hydraulic fitting manufacturer.

The IGBT-based power supply has a PLC/HMI operator interface with Ethernet connectivity. The system controls provided all of the part recipe information, including the part number being run, tooling part numbers, process parameters and induction-coil part numbers. In addition to a state-of-the-art controls platform, the system featured all of the required NFPA and OSHA requirements, such as light curtains, guarding, a low-voltage controls platform and standard process safeties.
