Induction heating rivets ends with IGBT induction rivets heater
Objective Heating steel rivets prior to head forming
Material Steel rivets
Temperature 1292 ºF (700ºC)
Frequency 283 kHz
Equipment • DW-UHF-6kW induction heating system, equipped with a remote workhead containing one 1.5μF capacitor.
• An induction heating coil designed and developed specifically for this application.
Process A single turn solenoid coil is used to heat the rivet to 1292 ºF (700ºC) for 10 to 15 seconds prior to head forming. A hand held work head is used.
Results/Benefits Induction heating benefits:
• Easy to use because of the hand held unit and foorswitch
• No flame or gas required
• Repeatable, fixed heat cycle
• Saves energy, only rivet head is heated
