GH IA Develops Induction Hardening Machine
May 21, 2012—GH Induction Atmospheres (GH IA), part of the worldwide GH Group, has built an induction heating machine that hardens, tempers, and quenches automotive parts on a rotating turntable. A global supplier of quality products for automotive and other industrial markets will use GH IA's new machine to harden automotive ball studs with increased speed, economy, and consistency. The development of this machine marks the first comprehensive technology transfer between GH IA and its new parent, GH Group. GH Group completed the basic system design at its engineering center in Valencia Spain; final design and manufacturing were completed at GH IA's Rochester, New York facility. The new induction hardening machine can process up to 240 parts per hour. "This new machine fulfills the promise of our exciting partnership with GH Group," said Dale Wilcox, GH IA's CTO. "With our combined engineering expertise and GH IA's American manufacturing and service capabilities, this machine is just the first of many innovative induction heating solutions we'll be developing for our customers."
