Following a trend towards induction wire heating, WAFIOS forming technology experts recently met wire heating experts from HIMMELWERK GmbH in Wuppertal to discuss the advantages of wire heating.

WAFIOS explains the trend towards induction wire heating has recently sharply increased, especially in the forming of stainless steels, special alloys such as Inconel® and titanium materials. In the last five years, WAFIOS Umformtechnik alone has equipped approximately 20 different cold formers in various expansion stages with induction heating – not only in Europe, but all over the world.

“The advantages of wire heating in the immediate vicinity of forming has impressed users,” comments WAFIOS. “These include optimised material flow and thus higher quality products, as well as an extended tool service life – potentially even forming with fewer press stages is possible. The workshop enabled us to start what we hope to be an even closer cooperation with HIMMELWERK.”

WAFIOS Umformtechnik will emphasise the advantages of wire heating even more proactively from now on. In addition to personal discussions with users, further marketing measures are also planned – so that everyone who uses the quality machines from Wuppertal learns about the decisive advantages of induction wire heating.
