Sob certas circunstâncias, o aquecimento híbrido usando fornos a gás e de indução pode ser desejável e rentável. A questão de se usar indução seguida por aquecimento a gás ou aquecimento a gás seguido por indução é aqui considerada.
A temperatura afeta muito a formabilidade dos metais para obter formas desejáveis. Há muitas maneiras de aquecer materiais metálicos, incluindo o uso de fornos a indução, a gás, aquecedores infravermelhos, elétricos e outros.
Under certain circumstances, hybrid heating using both gas and induction furnaces can be desirable and cost-effective. The issue of whether to use induction followed by gas heating or gas heating followed by induction is considered here.
In a fast-paced global economy, the ability of
induction heating manufacturers to minimize time between a customer’s request
for a quotation and a prepared quote based on efficient computer modeling is
critical to a company’s success.
Computer modeling is no longer just a useful tool, it has become a necessity. Computer simulation provides the ability to predict how different factors may affect the transitional and final thermal conditions of a heated workpiece and what must be done to determine the most appropriate process recipes.
In-line induction heating has become a popular method of heating billets in forging applications. There are many parameters to be considered in designing an induction heating system to meet the needs of modern forge shops. Application experience and computer modeling are important tools in developing effective induction billet-heating systems and avoiding unpleasant surprises related to common misconceptions.
The induction heating of round bars and round-corner-square (RCS) billets are often treated as equivalent applications, even though they are not. This article reconciles recent theoretical and practical achievements in providing required heat uniformity when inductively heating rectangular and trapezoidal workpieces.
Induction heating can offer benefits to forgers in certain applications. Process and design requirements for suitable applications are examined, as are common types of induction heating configurations.
