The Heat Mate Induction Heater makes light work of any job where a component requires heating to free off or become un-seized, particularly common in alignment adjustments. It is made safer by the flame-free process used to heat.
Heat Mate works by creating heat directly inside of the metal instead of heating up the entire component from the outside in.
This does not mean it's any less effective though! In fact, it is easily capable of reaching red heat (about 1000 degrees Celsius) in just a few seconds. By generating heat only in the desired point, the most common operations of straightening, bending and pin or bearing replacement can be carried out with ease! This method of heating is not only quicker and safer. It also can avoid any change in the metal’s characteristics.
Many tools will use oxyacetylene which can be inaccurate and heat larger areas than required.
The absence of a naked flame can lower costs by more than 50% compared with the use of oxyacetylene tanks. Heat Mate is able to heat a precise location rapidly, without needing to heat the whole area. This allows you to work close to cables, pipes and other components without the risk of damage normally seen.
