Double stapler cartridge, 0.64” (16.25 mm) x 0.54”(13.71 mm) x 0.8”(20.32 mm) heat length, 0.0425”(1.07 mm) thick magnetic steel
Power: Up to 10 kW
Temperature: 1400°F – 1600°F (760°C – 871°C)
Time: Average 3.5 seconds
Results and Conclusions:
Testing was then done using a short channel/open coil which provided better heat distribution across the part. The positioning of the part in the coil makes a difference in how it heats. The temperature was verified using a dual color Williamson pyrometer with an accuracy of +/- 3.6◦F. The 10kW system can bring up the part up to 1400◦F (760◦C) to 1500◦F (815◦C) plus in an average of 3.5 seconds. Temperature was checked on the outside and the inside staple cartridge with a temperature difference of 50◦F to 100◦F (10◦C to 37.7◦C) or less depending on heat time. Temperature was measured on the inside of the parts before quenching. All parts were quenched in Quenchfast quenching oil.
