Induction Curing Heating of Organic Coating Induction Heating is used to cure organic coating such as paint on metallic substrates by generating heat with in the subtract .By this mean curing occurs from within minimizing the tendency for formation of coating defects . A typical is application is drying of paint on sheet metal. Induction […]

A source of high frequency electricity is used to drive a large alternating current through a induction coil. This induction heating coil is known as the work coil. See the picture opposite. The passage of current through this induction heating coil generates a very intense and rapidly changing magnetic field in the space within the work coil. The workpiece […]

Induction Heating Shrink Fitting Camshaft Gear with IGBT Induction Heater Objective: Heating a camshaft gear with a bore size of 1.630″ to shrink fit over a steel shaft that has a diameter of 1.632″. A temperature of 5000F is required for the gear to expand 0.002″ in order to slip over the shaft. Production is presently done at […]

What Is Induction Heating? Induction heating is the process of heating an electrically conducting object (usually a metal) by electromagnetic induction, where eddy currents (also called Foucault currents) are generated within the metal and resistance leads to Joule heating of the metal.Induction heating is a form of non-contact heating,when alternating current flows in the induced […]
