Ajax TOCCO has been awarded an order for an industrial duty, dual-spindle servo controlled vertical scanner to induction harden inner rings used in transmissions. The scanner is equipped with a rotary index table capable of producing 600 parts per hour
Two (2) inner rings are manually loaded by the operator on the rotary index table tooling. A start button initiates the cycle, causing the rings to be indexed and raised up into the inductors where they are statically heated and quenched. At the completion of the quench cycle, the rings are lowered and returned to the load / unload position for removal by the operator. Quick change tooling allows for minimal change over time.
The scanner uses a solid-state, high frequency Pacer power supply and features Ajax TOCCO Magnethermic state of the art Magnescan QS control system with coil signature capability. This control package accurately monitors all of the induction hardening parameters to insure the precise results are obtained including:
- Energy Monitor
- Quench Temperature
- Quench Flow (Each Spindle)
- Quench Pressure (Each Spindle)
An integral quench recirculating system is built into the common base of the machine, and a side mount water recirculating system is provided for cooling the Pacer power supply.
Ajax TOCCO Magnethermic®, a subsidiary of Park-Ohio Holdings Corporation®, designs and manufactures world class induction heating and melting equipment for various industries and applications throughout the world. In addition, ATM provides a range of services including laboratory process development, preventative maintenance, equipment repair and parts, coil repair facilities, and installation services.
