INDUCTION HARDENING MACHINE – Manufacturer : Fuji Electronics Industry CO., LTD.
Induction Hardening Machine
From ball screws, train rails, automotive parts to heavy machinery parts; sizes big or small, Fuji Denshi’s induction hardening machines use state of the art technology that enables ideal hardening heat pattern with uniform hardening and less distortion than other competitor’s. For complex part shape, Fuji Denshi’s oscillation technology moves with the part’s shape and heat treats the part without making a contact to the heated area which results in more uniform heat pattern.
Machines that are capable of hardening work pieces over 10m are available also for large applications.
Power Supply Converter/Inverter
Fujidenshi’s FUJI-ELOMAT converters are designed as to have P(parallel)R(resonant) C(circuits) which has allows them to overcome all the demerits disadvantages of Serial Resonant Circuit converters with serial resonant circuits.
Fuji Denshi uses new style transformers that are less than 2 inch thick, making their equipment space-saver to meet customer’s limited space availability condition.
Coils that are used for Fuji Denshi ‘s induction heating equipment are one of the most power efficient coils in industry.
Accomplishing minimum use of the power and the efficient heating which will save customer utility bills are their organization goal, and they are doing so with their special coil designing engineers who design/make hundreds of coils each year.
ELECTROMECHANICAL DEBURRING MACHINE – Acritech Corp.
Automated Electrochemical Deburring System
Electrochemical Deburring Machine(ECMB) removes small burrs that were caused by drilling and milling during metal machining process. The advantages are to be able to reach the hard-to-reach areas of the machined metal, short cycle time, and the size of the deburring that can be done. When some mechanical deburring simply cannot reach the desired area, this electrochemical deburring can do the job. Also when multiple locations have to be deburred at the same time, this can do the job with short cycle time, and when desired areas to deburr is like a small pin hole, this can to the job.
Picture shows full automatic equipment that has part transferring loader inside of the deburring machine with washing station in it.
Semi-Automatic Electrochemical Deburring Machine
Semi-Automatic Electrochemical Deburring machines are also available for processes that can work with operator hand loading/unloading operations. This will be more cost effective than fully automated equipment.
Brushing Unit for Pre-Deburr Process
For more efficiency and precise electrochemecal deburring, Acritech also offers a brushing machine removes large burrs prior to the electrochemical deburring.
This pre-deburr brushing units can also be integrated to other machines and can be fully automated.
INDUCTION HARDENING MACHINE – Manufacturer : Capital Induction
Induction Heating Coil Fabrication
Capital Induction provides design/fabrication services of heat treat coils to suit wide range of induction heating needs.
Induction Heating Coil Repair
One of the service that Capital Induction offers is repair of a used coil.
When using a coil during mass production, some coils accidentally get damages.
Capital induction offers induction heating coil repairs for a fraction of a cost of getting a new coils made.
Capital induction is also a registered repair contractor is north America for all Fuji Denshi coils.
Capital Induction shares knowledges from Fuji Denshi and performs any repairing of transformers.
Repair services are better option for many times because of the cost and the turnaround time.
DIE CAST SYSTEMS – NIN Zinger (Suguro Corp)
Spray Atomizer / Mixing Atomizer for die lubrication
For more efficient and precise mixing and spraying of die lube, Nin Zinger carries arrays of atomizers that deliver more than satisfactory results.
When efficient spraying is a key to save running cost of die lubes, please refer to NIN Zinger’s atomizers. Spraying atomizers can be customized or using standard atomizer is also a good option for more cost effective way of accomplishing customer goal.
