When it comes to bar end heating, it is crucial to maintain productivity without sacrificing operator safety and consistent results. In order to do so, induction heating is the surely the best option.
With an induction bar end heater it typically takes couple second to reach the ideal temperature of 1,000 degrees Celsius. While working it manages to successfully induce pre-set temperatures in precisely defined areas for optimal results and productivity without sacrificing safety. Only selective portions from end of a round or square bar will be heated. The combination of high-speed and accuracy effectively minimizes scaling and increase the production.
Most induction bar end heaters consist of a power supply, loading and unloading systems as well as induction coils. The automation and speed of these revolutionary pieces of machinery allow you to incorporate them into already existing forging lines.
Also keep in mind that since induction is a method of heating that does not require contact, factors such as noise and dust will be drastically reduced – This in turn will in turn further increase operator productivity.
The induction bar end heater is available in various designs such as horizontal and vertical:
- Horizontal – bar end heaters work best for agricultural tools and forging bolts. Their construction usually consists of multiple coils which means that several parts are heated at the same time in dedicated heating stations.
- Vertical – bar end heaters are much more versatile as they can heat various components. This form of bar end heater is available with different numbers of heat stations depending on the product. An advantage of vertical heaters is the fact that they exploit gravity in order to remove scaling, automatically.
With an induction bar end heater, work is done in rhythm, meaning jobs are delivered at set intervals for maximum productivity and safety.
