Induction brazing and soldering the inlet caps and outlet pipes of fuel tanks
EFD Induction India has improved the soldering application with units recently supplied to the TVS Motor company.
Designed for brazing and soldering the inlet caps and outlet pipes of fuel tanks, the new machines now offer fully automatic operation. Controlled by a Siemens PLC S7200, pneumatics raise and lower the coil and move the components into position. The inlet caps and outlet pipes are soldered automatically and the operator only needs to lift away the completed tank. TVS is very happy with the new units and is placing further orders.
Advances in camshaft hardening
The team at EFD Induction India has just pioneered the development of an induction hardening machine for development succeeds in giving a uniform pattern at the base and nose of the camshaft. The customer is delighted with the unit and is planning a similar order for another facility.
Going to great lengths
Earlier this year EFD Induction India made its first delivery of an HardLine VL 2500 unit to an Indian customer. The unit is used for the hardening of shafts up to 2500 mm in length—from printing press ink rollers to truck axles. A Fanuc CNC system was used with the HardLine VL 2500. Together they give the operator much greater control over speed, position and accuracy and a better quality to the finished piece.
