Induction Heating in Tools & Equipment Industry

Hand Tools and Mining Industries induction heating

The tools and equipment are part of our everyday life. The design and manufacturing of tools like knives, saws, hammers, shovels, and screwdrivers can benefit from induction heating. Common manufacturing processes include heat treating, soldering, annealing, stress relieving, induction brazingshrink fitting, heat staking, and induction preheating. Induction heating allows you to establish full control over the process while monitoring every step. This makes it suitable for automated processes in high-volume production environments like tools and equipment manufacturing.

How Induction Heating is used in the Tools and Equipment Industries?

  • Selective hardening of tools (tips of hammers, screwdrivers, wrenches, etc.)
  • Induction hot forming and forging of tools – hammers, shovels, garden tools
  • Induction heat staking and plastic reflow – mounting of plastic or rubber handles to metal tools
  • Hardening and heat treating of knives, blades, and saws
  • Heat treating and brazing of drill bits and cutting tools
  • Curing of coatings and bonding of equipment components
  • Automated or robotic brazing and soldering of various tools and equipment parts
