Ajax TOCCO Magnethermic recently delivered 5 / 10 kW TOCCOtron AC induction heating systems to an international on-site heat treating firm. These systems are designed for portable / on-site preheat prior to welding applications.
The customer chose these systems over larger 35 kW induction heating systems due to significantly less equipment costs. At 5 kW continuous output, the customer stated the 5 / 10kW TOCCOtron AC systems satisfied the majority of their small to medium preheat prior to welding applications and was capable of heating 50 kg of steel to 200°C in 30 minutes.
The customer also cited a simple, robust design in addition to the light weight (hand carried), 100% aircooled design including quick setup and broad application capabilities as other factors in their decision.
Ajax TOCCO air-cooled induction weld preheat systems offer many advantages including:
• Controlled Cooling Rates
• Increased Penetration
• Increased Feed Rates
• Improved Quality
• Reduced Consumables
High-frequency induction heating cables can be configured for round, flat or irregular surfaces. No tools are required for installation and use. All electrical connections are made with quick disconnects and circular military style connectors. Other applications include bearing / sleeve shrink fitting, coatings curing, coatings removal, die heating and bulk heating applications.
