EFD Induction chosen for Eibach springs
SKIEN, NORWAY - 5/2/10. EFD Induction has been selected to provide a Sinac induction heater and coils for renowned suspension spring manufacturer Eibach. The Sinac has been bought by Schneider Maschinenbau of Lennestadt, Germany, who will incorporate it into an automated, high volume system for pre-heating stabilizer bar ends prior to forging.
Commenting on the project, Jürgen Schulte, Managing Director of Engineering and Operations at Eibach Germany, said: “I’m proud to work with EFD Induction on this important project. After all, state-of-the-art manufacturing technology is a cornerstone of our global reputation for quality. So we are extremely selectively about who we work with, but both Schneider and EFD Induction were able to meet our tough demands.”
The solution developed by Schneider and EFD Induction features a Sinac 50/80 capable of pre-heating Eibach’s extensive range of solid and tubular stabilizer bars. Only two induction coils are needed to cover the entire range. Eibach, which is headquartered in Finnentrop in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia, is a leading designer and manufacturer of suspension springs, valve springs, stabilizer bars and suspension systems. The company is the no. 1 supplier of suspension springs for Formula One cars.
