The goal of this induction heating application test is to preheat stainless steel belt buckles in order to prepare them for the plastic coating application and curing. Induction heating needs to be performed for 4 parts at a time. Application of polymer coating on top of metal part is very common in the automotive industry and induction heating is a preferred solution of preheating the part.
After initial calculations we estimated that our UltraHeat SM-5/200 5kW power supply we’ll be ideal to take the part to 100C over 10 sec with some extra power left. The temperature of the part will be evaluated using a FLIR thermal imaging camera.
