Straightening with induction heating
The thermal straightening of welded plate constructions has been a key area of EFD Induction activity since the early 1980s.
Our deck and bulkhead straightening solutions are found in the ship- building industry (deck straightening), construction industry (straightening of bridges) and trains/trucks industry (production and repair of locomotives, rolling stock and Heavy Goods Vehicles).
Using induction for straightening means that you get the right heat, exactly where you want it. When repairing a steel chassis on a truck, for example, there’s no need to dismount heat-sensitive components such as brakes and cables. Induction also makes life easier for staff and the environment. No gas flame to emit dangerous fumes. No flame to burn the skin. And, in addition, induction heating is easy to learn and safe to use.
