There are many ways to heat and heat treat metallic workpieces including the use of electromagnetic induction, which has become one of the most popular technologies due to its environmental friendliness, high energy efficiency, ergonomic advantages and ability to provide high production rates. In recent years, metal working industry has increased its technological knowledge of the production high quality components. This knowledge has led to many improvements in manufacturing powertrain and transmission components, gears and gear-like parts, long forged, rolled and extruded products and others. Novel steels appear quite regularly dramatically improving mechanical properties and microstructures resulting in many advancements in manufacturing critical components with superior properties including lower noise, lighter weight, energy efficiency, and lower cost as well as increased load-carrying capacity. The objective of this issue is to discuss innovations and breakthroughs that were recently developed in induction heating and heat treating technologies.
Suitable topics include, but are not limited, to the following:
- Theoretical and practical aspects of electromagnetic induction heating
- Innovative process technologies
- Computer modelling and optimisation
- Microstructural and grain size control
- Material properties
- Hardening/tempering/stress relieving
- Heating prior to warm and hot metal forming
- Nondestructive testing
- Failure analysis
- Thermal processing development
- Process monitoring and quality assurance
- Advanced coil designs
