April Machine Design Issue Features IA Technology READ ARTICLE
ROCHESTER, NY: April 10, 2005 -- Machine Design, a leading monthly publication for design engineers in the OEM, process and consulting industries, features IA's induction heating technology in an April article titled "Lean, Green Heating Machines".
Written by Lory Wells Hedges of High Tech Rochester, the magazine article describes how modern induction heating systems offer unique advantages over furnace brazing and soldering operations: fast operation, a smaller equipment footprint, pinpoint heating control and improved energy efficiency. Ms. Hedges includes examples of two companies who realized considerable energy cost savings by installing IA turnkey systems in their manufacturing cells.
In a separate sidebar titled "Induction Heating Basics", the author briefly explains how induction technology allows a conductive part to be heated without any direct contact with the induction coil; why copper, brass and aluminum heat more slowly than steels; and how the heating technique varies according to the size of the part.
