• An induction heating coil designed and developed specifically for this application.
Process A three turn helical coil at a 45º angle is used to anneal a 1.2” (30.5mm) strip of saw blade prior to hole punching.
Results/Benefits Induction heating provides:
• Improved quality of blades at hole punching location
• Decreased scrap product
• Easily incorporated into existing production lines
