The systems are available for workpiece lengths of 300 or 600 mm and for diameters of 6 to 30 mm. Standard CC machines feature a conveyor belt with inlet and automatic speed control. All machines in the range are powered by the company's Sinac generators. The workpieces are rotated by hardened rollers with stainless-steel bearings. The hardening and quench area is completely enclosed and rejects are automatically separated. Hand wheels reportedly allow quick and easy changeovers between workpiece groups. As an optional function, a discharge belt with jam control is also available that automatically starts and stops the machine when no workpiece is on the line.
Productive hardening systems
With throughput speeds up to 12 m/min, the Centerless Continuous (CC) hardening systems from EFD Induction are claimed to offer unrivalled productivity, particularly when integrated into production lines.
