To improve production rates and fastener quality, fastener manufacturers use heat in their heading, threading and patching production processes. With induction heating, fasteners are heated quickly, efficiently, and with maximum repeatability. The features and benefits of induction heating include:

  • a rapid heating method for improved productivity and higher volumes

  • Precise, even heating of all, or part, of the fastener

  • A clean, non-contact method of heating

  • Safety and reliability; instant-on, instant-off heating

  • Cost effective; reduces energy consumption compared to other heating methods

  • Easy to integrate with remote workheads

Induction delivers benefits to

Heading

Induction heating is commonly used for preheating bolt and screw heads prior to forging

Thread rolling

using a thread roll die to form a thread into a heated fastener – has gained popularity over thread cutting

Thread Patching

Induction heating is ideal for curing the paint or powder material used in thread patching
