A company in the Automotive industry is looking for an induction heating system that can reach the temperature of 175° C (347°F) and hold it within the tight tolerance of +/- 3 C. Induction heating will heat a steel cylinder to cure an adhesive for bonding of a quartz chip. Induction heating is a preferred method because it provides faster, controlled and more uniform heating.
Equipment: UltraHeat SM 5 kW induction heating system is recommended for this curing application to ramp up and hold the desired temperature.
The goal of this induction curing application is to heat two sides of a steel cylinder which is 1.064” (2.70 cm) OD, 7.25” (18.41 cm) long with a 1” (2.54 cm) heat zone up to 175 C (347°F) and hold that temperature for 60 seconds in order to perform bonding application. The desired temperature was reached in 13 seconds. A K-type temperature controller was used to measure the temperature.
Induction heating equipment provides the opportunity to define a temperature profile, thus regulating the power and preventing overheating of the parts to be heated.
