Our Products and Services
Induction Heating Power Supplies
To complement our range of induction heating power units Inductelec Limited offer a range of parts handling and positioning solutions. All levels of complexity can be accommodated from simple static jigs and tooling for brazing and soldering to robot fed, multi axis motion controlled progressive hardening systems.
Inductor & Coil Design
A key element of all induction heating systems is the geometry of the induction heating coil.
The relationship between the coil and work piece is critical to the results achieved in any induction heating system. Recognising this Inductelec Limited have invested heavily in a number FEA modelling tools including Altair Flux and ANSYS to ensure that optimum results are achieved.
The Altair system allows the temperature dependence of the magnetic properties of the steel to be taken into account. This is particularly important in hardening applications as the eutectoid temperature and Curie point are normally closely related. As such the heating effect is very non linear in this temperature range.
In addition to Altair we also utilise the ANSYS magnetic/thermal/fluid package to model stresses and MHD (magneto hydro dynamic effects.) Due to the rapid evolution of both computer hardware and software, modelling is now more feasible than was previously the case. Inductelec can boast 15 years of practical experience with FEA modelling and as such are able to develop inductors and coils with closely defined heated areas and tight ΔT.
Induction Coil Manufacture & Repair
In addition to our coil design department Inductelec Limited also offer a fast efficient manufacturing and repair service. Our highly experienced coppersmiths are able to repair coils and inductors of any manufacture. Recognising the importance of fast turnaround not only do we carry extensive materials stocks, but by utilising our “in house” machining capability we can control all elements of the repair thereby giving us total control over timescales and costs.
