There are quite a few different induction bending machines and induction heat sources on the market. The common theme between all of the equipment is how the material is heated. When the metals are subject to induction bending, they are heated externally (from the outside of the material and the heat transfers through the material to the inside of the material) using copper induction coils. The heat zone (heated area) is typically a fairly narrow circumferential area (2” – 6”), which matches the width of the induction coils that are being used to heat the material. Induction heat sources are extremely accurate in their ability to control the temperature of the material. Materials are heated using high frequency induced electrical power.
Companies using induction heat for bending will typically slowly move material through an induction heating coil and bend materials incrementally (in small increment sections) or they will use a fixed radius arm arrangement to reach a desired radius.
Quick heat, great uniformity
As it sits 10 seconds you see the heat band widening
No variation in the corners
Just want to let you and your shop guys know that the rolling of the beams that you did for us was a quality job and done and delivered on time. Thanks for the good work and hope to do more in the future.
I remember getting quotes and visiting the shop 30-some years ago and thought it was cool to watch the crew bend small pipe. Looking at these pictures shows how far your company has come. This is really interesting stuff! A guy would look forward to coming to work every day to do something this impressive. Keep up the wonderful work!
