Uniform Magnetic Heating (UMH) – a special thermal treatment process used in large scale production in the automotive and rail industry

Ruecker Nils - pro-beam systems GmbH (Germany)

As a specialist for electron beam technique the pro-beam group does not only offer job shop production, but manufactures electron beam systems as well as heating machines for several industrial applications. For heating of components pro-beam uses the UMH-process (uniform magnetic heating). Workpieces are placed into an alternating magnetic field for UMH heating. The change of the direction of polarisation generates friction losses and thus heat in the workpiece.
We will explain the theoretical fundamentals of the UMH- technology and its advantages compere to conventional heating process.
