Shrink fitting of gear wheels
Sub-contractors to the automotive industry must constantly strive to trim costs, waste and lead times—while simultaneously meeting tough quality demands.
Little wonder then that more and more sub-contractors are opting for induction heating to shrink-fit gear wheels. This is particularly true for gearbox assembly lines, but it also applies to a range of processes involving the assembly of gear wheels onto shafts. Induction heating provides several cost and quality benefits. Heat delivery is accurate, too; with precise control of ramp-up times and holding temperatures. Moreover, induction heating reduces the risk of ovality, as heat delivery is accurate. The benefits of induction are easily available, as an induction heating system can be easily fitted into existing production lines. So if the prospect of better quality, more throughput and lower costs sounds attractive, contact us today. Together we can devise a solution to improve the productivity of your shrinkfitting operation.
