In some applications, such as the forming of tie-rod heads, only the end regions of the workpiece need to be heated for subsequent deformation. Induction end-heating systems of all coil types are more sensitive to electromagnetic and thermal non-uniformities that are innate to the induction heating process.
This article introduces a practical technique that enables the reduction of burning loss or mill scale and increases yield in most kinds of steels. The technique is most successfully adopted in open-die hot forging and hot rolling of stainless and other expensive alloy steels.
The ISO 50001 international standard for energy performance was introduced in part 1 of this article. In this concluding installment, the individual stages of an induction heating line are examined for individual energy efficiencies. An actual energy audit is also summarized.
Version 2.10 of eVIEW induction heating system data-capture software accepts input signals from a data-acquisition unit (DAQ), enabling temperature monitoring and outputs to a spreadsheet to log user-defined alarms.
Founded as Galt British Forge in 1928, Canada’s Patriot Forge celebrated 85 years in business in 2013. The company has added facilities since the 1970s and targets its investments not only toward forging equipment and space but also toward support services, making it a full-service supplier of engineered forged components.
