Induction Heating Speeds up Repair of the World’s Largest Rock Crusher

Red-D-Arc staff at the Moncton, New Brunswick branch recently helped a customer save time and money repairing the world’s largest rock crusher through the use of induction heat. The hydraulic cylinder that operates the pressure plates used by the enormous rock crusher needed to be brought to a temperature of 500 °F and that temperature needed to be maintained for 3 full days. This was required in order to allow welders to repair the lifting tabs on the cylinder. Normally 3 workers would have used blow torches to heat the metal which would have taken 2 weeks or longer. The Red-D-Arc Induction Heating System allowed them to get the job done in less than half the time. Induction heating has many applications in construction, shipbuilding, hydro dam maintenance and bridge building. Red-D-Arc technicians are recognized in the industry for their innovative application of this technology, ready to meet any variety of customer challenges. Ask us how induction heating can save you time and money on your next project.

Welding equipment and operations can be expensive, but these costs can be lowered by making a few minor changes. Many fabricators and manufacturers are aware they have problems in their operation but struggle with quantifying the real costs associated with those problems. Some things to consider when trying to lower your costs but increase efficiency and productivity are: the type of equipment you’re using, how old the equipment is, labor costs and properly equipped welding stations.

The Airgas/Red-D-Arc Weld Efficiency Analysis program can help you find hidden costs robbing your profits. This free program helps customers understand and control the hidden costs associated with many welding operations. We will analyze your welding operations and compare your results to peer benchmarks and best practices. A three-and-a-half day class is also available, designed to help you learn from experts, reduce your operating costs by 20% or more and improve quality …all without any capital investment.
