PRUFTECHNIK not only supplies premium alignment systems for aligning machines and shafts, but also the right induction heating tools for mounting bearings on shafts. The benefits of induction heating include safety, efficiency, and overall energy savings.
EDDYTHERM Portable can be used for all bearings and work pieces with an inner diameter of min. 20 mm (0.78 inches) and a weight of up to 10 kg (22 lbs). The maximum induction heat is 180°C (356°F), protecting your bearings against overheating and damage. The workpiece is placed onto the cone shaped heating surface. The integrated time and temperature regulation capability ensures that the workpiece is heated evenly with no risk of overheating.
How does induction heating work? In just a few minutes, the bearings are preheated by induction so that that they expand and glide effortlessly onto the shaft. When the bearing cools down, it assumes its original size and thus guarantees the desired tight fit on the shaft. Due to the induction heat, all tolerances and material properties are maintained without loss. No further work steps are necessary. EDDYTHERM Portable is a safe induction heating tool that only heats the work piece, not the tool itself.
