Technical Notes

Induction heating is a fast, efficient, precise and repeatable non-contact method for heating metals or other electrically-conductive materials. The material may be a metal such as steel, copper, aluminum, brass or it can be a semiconductor such as carbon, graphite or silicon carbide. To heat non-conductive materials such as plastics or glass, induction is used to heat an electrically-conductive susceptor, typically graphite, which then transfers the heat to the non-conducting material.

Heat Staking: Inserting Metal Into Plastic

Heat Staking: Inserting Metal Into Plastic

One of the most common uses for induction heating is the heat staking of threaded metal inserts into plastic. Most thermo-plastics are too soft to sufficiently hold a thread, so brass or steel threaded inserts are added.
