Innovative. Industry Leader.
Speed, temperature and cost. We routinely are asked to heat metal parts safely & rapidly, with consistent temperature throughout the part. Our customers need to accomplish this in a manner, that is continuously usable and with the ability to monitor both of time and temperature. While we need to monitor the time and temp, we also needed to set precise control points in order to provide consistency in repeated use and minimize any risk of overheating damage. Fast is not always the best answer!
A Low Frequency Approach
We developed the Easytherm 60 “Special” for our customer to heat roll rings in a precise controlled manner yet with a system powerful enough to allow multiple parts to be heated in one machine cycle. Utilizing a part cradle and sliding yoke arrangement, we teamed our state of the art controls with 63A power to provide a robust solution. Built to work with the customer’s assembly requirements, the Easytherm 60 Special can run 3 shift every day without the need for any cooling.
The Middle Frequency Approach
After receiving sample parts form our customer, we developed together a spec and began testing the best approach toward heating the part in the time frame needed. As the part was a solid casting, faster localized heating provided by the EasyHeat induction system allowed us to manufacturing a special coil that applied a heavy induction field to the inner bore of the part and rapidly heated the entire surface.
Once enough time was allowed for the part to stabilize and soak, the coil was removed and a large planetary assembly was placed in the main bore. This entire process saved the customer over 12+ hours furnace and assembly time. Once the gear assembly was placed in the carrier, final complete assembly begin on the gear box housing. No need for the part to cool down!!
