A new Technical Bulletin released by eldec LLC discusses the use of induction heating for shrink fitting components of electrical motor assemblies. Since induction heat can uniformly and gently heat the outer housing of the motor without overheating any one area, shrink-fit connections are simple to assemble and disassemble. The process can be adapted for:
- Joining electric motor housings
- Joining motor shafts and rotors
- Short circuit ring brazing
- Other brazing applications
You can also learn more about induction shrink fitting by speaking with one of eldec's induction heating experts in booth number 1000 at the Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo at the The Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Michigan. The expo runs from September 12th - 14th.
