induction heating rivets
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
