An induction coil with alternating current is used to introduce an electromagnetic force field around a work piece. The magnetic field induces an electric current (eddy-current) at the surface of the work piece. Resistance in the work piece causes the current to generate heat. Pipe dimensions we can bend: outside diameter (OD) from 16 mm. to 457,2 mm. (18”), wall thickness from 1.2 mm. to 100 mm.
And a desire for NIRAS to be a leading company within induction bending, resulted in the establishment of an internal laboratory in 2016. NIRAS laboratory is equipped with modern, high quality preparation and testing equipment for microstructural analysis and hardness testing.
