Client turned to induction for brazing PCD inserts to carbide for manufacturing cutting tools
Scottsville, NY - Ambrell, a leading manufacturer of induction heating systems, has sold an EASYHEAT induction heating system to a carbide tooling manufacturer. The client will use the EASYHEAT for brazing PCD (Polycrystalline Diamond) inserts to carbide for manufacturing cutting tools.
The client was developing a new process to braze cutting tools ranging from 1/8” (3.2 mm) to over 1” (25.4 mm) in diameter. Induction was chosen because it can heat the parts to temperature in less than the targeted time of 20 seconds and it’s highly controllable so there’s no risk of overheating the carbide.
The client chose Ambrell thanks to free applications testing, which offered peace-of-mind as they knew the heating process would achieve their requirements prior to purchasing the unit. Additionally, the versatile EASYHEAT – which enables users to adjust taps and capacitors – allows them to heat parts with different diameters and lengths.
Ambrell has a great deal of experience with a variety of carbide tipping applications. Many customers switch to induction from a torch for this application. Benefits of switching include precise, controllable heating, speed, energy savings and operator safety.
Ambrell was founded over 25 years ago and has sold more than 10,000 systems into over 50 countries. All clients are offered free application testing to ensure their system achieves process objectives.
