The induction specialist

Smit Heat Treatment is a specialist in the field of induction. This is a technique that works on the basis of alternating current. This alternating current affects a magnetic field that consists of a beam. It basically works likes an induction cooker, in which the alternating current heats the bottom of the pan, but not the cooker itself. Smit Heat Treatment uses this process on a larger scale.

Advantages of induction heating

Induction annealing or induction heating has various advantages:

  • Short assembly and disassembly times
  • Ideally suited for the local heating of workpieces
  • Using high frequency induction enables you to process a series of small workpieces in a short time
  • Can be used for the smallest and largest weld seams
  • Suitable for the heat treatment of round and sealing seams
  • Optimum energy yield due to inductive heat generation
  • Suitable for the execution of pre-heating work
  • Precise temperature measurements by measuring the temperature of the workpiece
  • Registration of the heat treatment on 6 or 12-channel recorders
Annealing techniques

Medium frequency induction annealing

Smit Glühdienst GmbH is specialised in high-frequency induction annealing as well as medium-frequency induction annealing. Medium-frequency induction annealing is ideal for the low stress annealing or pre-heating of round and sealing seams to a diameter of more than 10 metres. Important advantages of inductive heating are the short warming up times and the incredibly consistent temperature. Induction annealing is possible in any desired location.
