Induction Stress Relieving Applications & Equipment

Why use induction heating for Stress Relieving? Material can develop microcracks due to heat treating. Induction stress relieving equipment can be used to accurately set the power to specifically relieve the part of the material that’s under stress and relax the area in order to alleviate cracks and minimize metal fatigue. 4140 steel and other high carbon-based materials would benefit from induction stress relieving.

Induction offers key advantages

  • No open flames, no more need for using Oxy-Acetylene torches or storing flammable gas tanks. Induction is cleanflamelesssafe.
  • Fast and energy-efficient for multiple applications.
  • Localized heating: Precise “useful” heat can be focused only to the area to be treated.
  • Consistency & Repeatability: Evenly applied heat.
  • Automation: Feeders, scanners, heating – all can be automated with cost-effectively.
  • Quick/Instant On features make induction energy and cost-efficient.
  • Can be done in an atmosphere for a nice clean braze – no post-cleaning required.
  • Using our optional Master Controller V3+, you can control for Power and Temperature, or Power and Net Heating Time Presets for each braze joint diameter. Use the Controller’s “Quick Access” menu to pull up all the Presets for required braze joints prior to the day’s production run.

Why Induction Technology Solutions for Induction Stress Relieving?

Our systems verify that the part has reached the target temperature, using dual-color optical pyrometers. The induction power supply’s settings (power, temperature) are stored in our data logger and can be recalled by work order and downloaded as a .csv or, using our proprietary software, you can see the data graphically. Verified, repeatable, logged results, every time.

Thermal Profile Management and Monitoring

  • Up to 20 Programmable Temperature and Time Segments per Process
  • Up to 100 different storable processes
  • Maximum Power Output Programmable for Each Individual Segment
  • Temperature Tolerance Window Programmable for Each Individual Segment
  • Out-of Tolerance and End-of-Cycle Outputs for Each Process

Thanks to the Thermal Profile Monitoring software, coupled with the new SH15/SLE Optical Pyrometers, the user is now able to set specific temperature profiles, and monitor and certify the heating process of each production item.
