The vigorous development of the automotive industry has brought unprecedented opportunities for the development of auto parts industry. The induction heating technology is also being applied in the field of automobile manufacturing more and more widely.
In the process of smelting, casting is a method to form metals which are easy shaped. This method can be used to make various parts with different sizes and shapes. It can be said that in the development of the automobile industry, everything can be used in best way, almost all casting methods can be done in the automotive industry. The main smelting processes methods for the production of automobile parts at home and abroad are mainly including the melting process of cupola, the melting process of medium frequency induction furnace
and the double melting process of the cupola medium frequency induction furnace. But induction melting furnace is widely used in foundry industry because of its technical advantages.
In terms of heating, according to statistics, the induction heat treatment parts of the former Soviet Union in the automotive industry have accounted for 40% to 45% of the heat treated parts. With the development of induction heating technology, its application and development level is self-evident.
The induction heating technology is mainly used in the automotive industry in the following areas:
(1) Metal melting.
(2) Forging blank heating.
(3) Auto parts heat treatment.
(4) Automotive parts after bonding the parts induction heating and curing.
(5) Semi-solid forming of induction heating.
(6) Induction heating assembly.
(7) Induction heating brazing.
