Induction hardening of supsension solutions

State-of-the-art Sinac for state-of-the-art Eibach

The next time you watch a Formula One race on TV, you can be sure that most of the cars on the track are equipped with suspension springs from Eibach.

In fact, wherever  high-performance vehicles have to endure extreme conditions, chances are many of them will be fitted with Eibach suspension solutions. 

So it was a particularly proud day when EFD Induction heard they had been selected to provide a Sinac induction heater and coils for renowned 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   world renowned designer and  manufacturer of suspension springs, valve springs, stabilizer bars and  suspension systems. Although famous for its involvement in  motorsports, the company is also a major supplier for mass produced car models
