Induction Heating Speeds up Repair of the World’s Largest Rock Crusher

Red-D-Arc staff at the Moncton, New Brunswick branch recently helped a customer save time and money repairing the world’s largest rock crusher through the use of induction heat. The hydraulic cylinder that operates the pressure plates used by the enormous rock crusher needed to be brought to a temperature of 500 °F and that temperature needed to be maintained for 3 full days. This was required in order to allow welders to repair the lifting tabs on the cylinder. Normally 3 workers would have used blow torches to heat the metal which would have taken 2 weeks or longer. Red-D-Arc Induction Heating Equipment allowed them to get the job done in less than half the time. Induction heating has many applications in construction, shipbuilding, hydro dam maintenance and bridge building. Red-D-Arc technicians are recognized in the industry for their innovative application of this technology, ready to meet any variety of customer challenges.

Ask us how induction heating can save you time and money on your next project.

Red-D-Arc-Grimsby-SecondaryRed-D-Arc is supporting the development of future welding industry professionals thanks in large part to Joe Nagy – Regional Operations Manager for Canada. Joe reached out to Ed Stavnitzky, student achievement leader from the District School Board of Niagara (DSBN) and welding instructor Bill Meloche from the Grimsby Ontario High school welding tech shop to discuss ways in which Red-D-Arc could support their efforts. The DSBN adult welding program trains adults to CWB standard 4G and prepares them for a career in the welding industry. Red-D-Arc provided nine wire feed packages and a plasma cutting machine; helping to get this community project off the ground. Ten students started the program in the Summer of 2015 and eight finished with all position CWB certification. Ed and Bill recently informed Joe that seven of the eight graduates are employed in welding or welding related industries throughout the region. Joe has since reached out to Dan Tadic Executive Director at the Canadian Welding Association (CWA) and is in discussions to partner with the CWA Foundation Charity to help students, institutions and industries right across Canada.
