Induction Hot Forming Stainless Steel Tape With Radio Frequency Heating Equipment
Objective: To heat a stainless steel “J” tape to 3000F from room temperature at a rate of 15 feet per minute. The material is to be heated to aid in forming the “J” shape from flat stock.
Material: Stainless Steel “J” Tape measuring 0.562″ wide, 0.028″ thick and continuously fed.
Application: The DW-HF-15kW output solid state induction power supply along with a fifteen (15) turn rectangular helical coil were found to produce the following result:
* 3000F was reached on a 6″ section within 2 seconds in a static test which translates into over 15 feet per minute.
Equipment: DW-HF-15kW output solid state induction power supply including one (1) remote heat station containing one (1) capacitor with a value of 1.2 μF, and a unique fifteen (15) turn oval coil 6″ long, 1 1/4″ wide and 1″ high.
Frequency: 80 kHz
