Why use induction annealing

DaWei induction annealing provides many advantages over other heating methods and is commonly used for annealing applications. Heating through induction provides reliable, repeatable, non-contact and energy-efficient heat in a minimal amount of time. Solid state systems are capable of heating very small areas within precise production tolerances, without disturbing individual metallurgical characteristics. Induction can be used for either surface or through heating; case annealing is possible depending on time, temperature and the material's characteristics.

Induction Annealing is a metal heat treatment in which a metal material is exposed to an elevated temperature for an extended time and then slowly cooled. Induction Annealing heat treatment is largely characterized by induced micro-structural changes which are ultimately responsible for altering the material's mechanical properties. The ultimate goal of this process is to reduce the hardness of the metal and improve its ductility.
