Induction heating has several notable safety advantages to open flame, according to Josam. This includes eliminating the use of gas, minimizing the risk of personal injury, and minimizing the risk of damage to sensitive machine parts. An induction heating system can also require less maintenance.
Josam offers two induction heating systems for North American customers.
The JH1500 is lighter and easier to maneuver than its predecessor, and features enhanced software. Heat is applied directly to the material without the need to disassemble nearby heat-sensitive components. Chassis, axles, joint reinforcements, bolts, clamping rings, pins, and heavier steel parts can simply be heated up for loosening, adjusting, or straightening. Featuring five output levels, the JH1500 is water cooled with a compressor for optimal running time and fits the needs of most shops that execute demanding types of heating work.
The JH1000 is ideal for lighter straightening and loosening of coarser machine parts, such as nuts and bolts, bushings, bearings, and smaller chassis parts, making it fit for truck and construction machinery workshops. It is designed for improved movability and has a long hose package and cables for long reach. The heating effect can be controlled through the five output levels on the control panel and efficient cooling is provided via a fan and condenser unit in a closed water cooling system.
