Induction Forging Billets for copper,steel and brass With Medium Frequency Heating System
Objective To heat inconel billets to 2050°F (1121.1ºC) for a forging process.
Material Small inconel billets 0.39” OD, 0.7” length (.99mm OD, 17.8mm length) with ceramic crucible 1.0” OD, 0.7” ID, 1.4” length (25.4mm OD, 17.8mm ID, 35.6mm length); large inconel billets 0.5” OD, 1.0” length (12.7mm OD, 25.4mm length) with ceramic crucible 1.25” OD, 0.87” ID, 1.37” length (31.8mm OD, 22.1mm ID, 34.8mm length)
Temperature 2050°F (1121.1ºC)
Equipment • DW-MF-20kW induction heating system equipped with a
• An induction heating coil designed and developed specifically for this application.
Process A four-turn helical coil is used to deliver uniform heat to the inconel billets. Both size billets heat to 2050°F (1121.1ºC) within 12 seconds.
Results/Benefits Induction heating provides:
• Uniform and repeatable results
