Subject: Lead Patenting/Oil-tempered vs. Induction Heating


Our office is has been working with a local wire manufacturing company.  The wire is manufactured from coiled steel.  80% of their heat treatment process is done with lead patenting and oil quenching on 9 lines.  They do use one Induction Heating line, but do not realize the long term cost/environmental benefits of using this technology, or if they do, are more concerned with the capital investment (they probably spent @ $2-$3 million for their only line).  We want to show them induction heating is a feasible option.

Does anybody have case studies and actual cost justifications comparing these two methods of heat treating?

Thanks in advance.
