Rochester, NY, September 17, 2013 --(PR.com)-- GH Induction Atmospheres (GH IA), a leading American provider of customized industrial heating solutions, has built an innovative induction heating machine that processes two automotive starter driveshaft parts every 16 seconds.

A global automotive systems and components supplier contracted with GH IA to develop the machine specifically for a new starter driveshaft line. “Our customer was searching for an American company with design, build and service capability,” said Chip Laskowski, GH IA Director of Sales. "We met their requirements by modifying the already-proven machine design built by our parent company, GH Electrotermia."

The new machine hardens and tempers two driveshafts for automotive starters every 16 seconds. The design employs dual vertical induction scanners with multiple power settings and scan speeds along each driveshaft, servo-controlled automated pick and place, and integrated process verification. Hardening is accomplished at a temperature of 1600°F (871.1°C) and the tempering cycle operates at 400°F (204.4°C). The machine is part of a larger, continuous driveshaft manufacturing process that includes previous machining and additional grinding.
