Brazing Golf Ball With Induction
Objective: Heating steel golf ball mold to brazing dimple insert
Material: Golf ball mold 2” in diameter, braze flux paste, dimple insert
Temperature: 1400 ºF (760 ºC)
Frequency: 260 kHz
Equipment • DW-UHF-10kW induction heating system, equipped with a remote workhead containing two 0.5μF capacitors for a total of 0.25 μF
• An induction heating coil designed and developed specifically for this application.
Process A four turn helical coil is used to heat the golf ball mold to 1400ºF (760 ºC) in 3 minutes and the dimple insert is brazed to the mold with braze flux paste.
Results/Benefits Induction heating provides:
• No flame process.
• Reliable, repeatable, non contact and energy efficient heat in minimal time.
• Even distribution of heating.
