INDUCTION HEATING APPLICATIONS
Heat Station induction heaters are currently used in industrial, medical, and scientific processes. These include brazing of tools, tubes, and various assemblies, soldering connectors and terminals, heating inserts for hot pressing into plastics, shrink fitting of gears, rings, and bearings, preheating for welding and molding operations, melting, heat staking, cap sealing, extruder barrel heating, curing coatings and adhesives, heating catheter molds, annealing, stress relieving, and process heating applications.
Induction heating is used to heat metals to be joined until a brazing alloy which is placed inside or in proximity to the joint along with a fluxing agent melts and creates a strong metallurgical bond between the metals.
Induction heating is used for a variety of processes which change the characteristics of metals including annealing, tempering, and hardening.
Induction heating is used to cause thermal expansion and allow the insertion or removal of a mating component. Gears to shafts, flanges to hubs, and bearing insertion are just a few common examples of shrink fit applications.
Induction heating is used to heat knurled threaded inserts to press into plastics and provide durable attachment points.
Induction heating is used to precisely heat metals to join and protect when a low melting point alloy is placed inside or in close proximity to a joint.
Heat staking, adhesive and coating drying and curing, preheating for welding and molding operations, cap sealing, catheter tipping.
