Objective Heat the end of an aluminum copier roller to 400 ºF (200 ºC) to cure epoxy
Material Aluminum roller 4.75” (120mm) diameter, 2’ (0.6m) long with 1.5” (38.1mm) thick plug at end
Temperature 400 ºF (200 ºC)
Frequency 52 kHz
Equipment • DW-HF-25 kW induction heating system, equipped with a remote workhead containing eight 1.0μF capacitors for a total of 2.0μF
• An induction heating coil designed and developed specifically for this application.
Process A four turn helical pancake coil is used to heat the end of the copier roller assembly. The assembly is heated 90 seconds to cure the adhesive.
Results/Benefits Induction heating provides:
• Faster process time
• Hands-free heating that involves no operator skill for manufacturing
• Even distribution of heat between tube and end plug
