Objective Preheat a steel rim for tire removal using induction with an air-cooled coil in under 5 minutes. The preheating should reach 232°C (450°F) to break the adhesive bond to facilitate tire removal.
Key Parameters Power: 7 KW Temperature: 232°C (450°F ) Time: 2 mins 40 sec.
Results and Conclusions:
The target temperatures were successfully achieved for each part with the air-cooled unit. Faster times can be reached by tuning the equipment to each part. The number of coil turns varied for each part.
