What are the uses of induction furnaces?
The biggest feature of induction furnace heating is that the workpiece can be directly heated, the workpiece heating speed is fast, the temperature is easy to control, and no metal impurities are mixed in the heating process, so it has a wide range of applications.
The most common applications of induction furnaces are in the machinery manufacturing industry and metallurgical industry, so what are the specific uses of induction furnaces? Red Teng editor to introduce to you.
Quenching: heating the workpiece to a certain temperature and then cooling it down quickly, so that the metallographic structure of the workpiece is changed to a certain extent, thereby increasing the hardness and wear resistance of the workpiece, which is called quenching. However, after the workpiece is quenched, it will become very brittle and the fatigue resistance will deteriorate. In order to solve this contradiction, there is a surface quenching process.
Induction heating is the most ideal heating method for surface hardening, which can meet the surface hardening requirements of the workpiece by controlling the heating depth and heating time.
Diathermy: During the heating process, the internal and surface temperatures of the entire workpiece are approximately equal, which is called diathermy. The advantages of induction heating for diathermy are that it has high heating efficiency, fast speed, reduced metal burning loss, easy temperature control, and guaranteed heating quality, so it has been more and more widely used.
Melting: When the induction furnace is used for smelting, it has these advantages, which can provide workers with a better working environment, high heating efficiency, less burning loss of alloying elements in the solution, easy control of components, and high product quality, especially suitable for melting Various high-grade alloy steels.
Sintering: Sintering is used in powder metallurgy, and is often used to manufacture products such as carbide tools. Induction heating is an ideal heating method for vacuum sintering, which can improve the quality of products.
