______________________________________________________________________________________________ Question of the Month: What is the difference between auto-tempering and self-tempering? Answer: Sometimes the terms auto-tempering and self-tempering are incorrectly used interchangeably. Here we will explore the differences in what these two terms really mean (Materials of this article have been adapted from the 2nd Edition of the Handbook of Induction Heating, […]
————————————————————————————————————————————————— Inappropriate coil design parameters and process recipe may result in crack development near oil holes. Longitudinal and transverse holes an induction heated component can cause an undesirable redistribution of eddy current flow, generating excessive heat in certain regions of the workpiece, which could potentially lead to localized overheating. Overheating can cause unwanted metallurgical microstructures, […]
According to a patented non-rotational crankshaft hardening process, heat patterns are “locked in place” and very repeatable since neither the crankshaft nor the coils are moving. The same pattern is achieved over many cycles.
