Free Webinar (Tuesday, August 30, 2016 2:00 pm): Addressing Modern Challenges and Preventing Common Problems in Induction Heat Treatment……. Posted. 08.18.2016
Induction heat treatment equipment offers an unmatched combination of reliability, efficiency, and flexibility to users. Despite the many advantages of induction, the modern design of heat treated components and associated heat treatment specifications and process requirements create numerous physical challenges. Addressing these challenges requires a combination of technical knowledge, practical experience, advanced computer simulation capabilities, and innovative thinking.
In this webinar you will learn about the implications of “lightweighting” and geometrical complexities; how to predict as-tempered hardness in induction tempering and stress-relieving; how to eliminate operations by combining induction heat treatment processes; and innovative approaches to maximize coil life.
Collin Russell is a software modeling design engineer at Inductoheat, working in research and development. He works closely with mechanical and electrical engineers, metallurgists, and failure analysis specialists. Collin’s work is concentrated in the computer simulation of induction processes in order to maximize heat treatment quality, improving equipment flexibility and capability, preventing premature inductor failures, shortening the “learning curve” in process development, conducting feasibility and failure analysis studies, and developing novel induction equipment and processes.
Prior to joining Inductoheat, Collin spent four years in various engineering roles at American Axle. He is a graduate of Kettering University (formerly GMI).
