Description

The second edition of the Handbook of Induction Heating reflects the number of substantial advances that have taken place over the last decade in theory, computer modeling, semi-conductor power supplies, and process technology of induction heating and induction heat treating. This edition continues to be a synthesis of information, discoveries, and technical insights that have been accumulated at Inductoheat Inc. With an emphasis on design and implementation, the newest edition of this seminal guide provides numerous case studies, ready-to-use tables, diagrams, rules-of-thumb, simplified formulas, and graphs for working professionals and students.

Reviews

"The 2nd Edition of the Handbook for Induction Heating is equivalent to having 3 world class experts on staff without paying high priced consulting fees. For your seasoned, and probably more importantly, your new and emerging manufacturing and process engineers, this comprehensive guide provides the details your company needs to compete around the world. Significant technical achievements have occurred since 2002 with the last edition. Rudnev, Loveless, and Cook have compiled an indispensable, world class text replete with the basics and advanced concepts of induction heating. The case studies also illustrate and inspire the design and deployment of innovative concepts which transform theory into application. If you are not reading and using this tour de force, it is safe to say that your competitors have read and marked up their copies."

Jon D. Tirpak, PE, FASM; Executive Director, Forging Defense Manufacturing Consortium, and Past President, ASM International (2015 – 2016)

"As an automotive plant we are performing several heat treatment processes, among them induction hardening. Rear axle shafts, ring gears, couplers, etc. … all require induction hardening in order to obtain the required material properties like case depth, surface hardness, … . Although we have decades of experience, it is of crucial importance to have -theoretical and practical- technical support from specialists. The Handbook of Induction Heating is an exceptional help and reference work for everyone that is involved in IH. Not only when everything goes fine, but also when you face problems like undesirable or unexplainable results after IH, machine issues, etc. This book has given us the answer to many questions over the years and it will continue to do that. The 2nd edition is even more enhanced, and contains again a wide spectrum of many different issues that belong to the world of the practitioners of IH. One more thing to add: in the seldom event that one of the problems you face is not mentioned in the book, you can easily turn to the authors and ask them your question. This is what we experienced and appreciate enormously."

Mike Bogaerts, Supervisor Materials and Chemical Lab, CNH Industrial, Antwerp, Belgium

"Induction heating is used in many applications which include heat treatment, forging, extrusion, rolling, bonding, brazing, sealing, shrink fitting, drying, and bending. A thorough knowledge of the process enables one to optimize its use in ever-increasing number of applications. This handbook assimilates the broad experience of the authors to accomplish this need."

Tirupathi R. Chandrupatla, Rowan University, New Jersey, USA

"A very comprehensive, must-have textbook that heat treatment engineers should definitely read. You can learn every aspect of induction hardening and become an expert starting from scratch."

Tusas Motor Sanayii, Ali Firat Dinler, Turkey

Dr. Rudnev is considered by many as one of the leading global figures in the induction heating and heat treating industry and is known within the American Society for Materials (ASM International) and among induction heating professionals worldwide as "Professor Induction." In 2006, Dr. Rudnev was elected as a Fellow of the ASM Int’l in recognition of his distinguished contributions in materials science and engineering. His credits include more than 40 patents and inventions and more than 200 publications. Dr. Rudnev contributed materials to 10 Handbooks devoted to various aspects of induction heating, heat treating, material science and computer modeling. In 2013 – 2016, he was elected as the Chairman of the Technical Committee of the Forging Industry Association (FIA) of North America.

Mr. Don Loveless was Group Vice President of Technology (retired) at Inductoheat Inc. and continues as a consultant. He received his Electrical Engineering degree from Western Michigan University. His global responsibilities included development of 14 models of induction heating power supplies including IGBT and MOS FET inverters as well as medium and high frequency transformers for a wide variety of applications of induction heating and heat treating. Mr. Loveless joined Inductoheat in 1972. His credits include a great deal of "know-how", technical reports and research & engineering publications, including his contribution in several Handbooks published in USA and Europe. Mr. Loveless has been granted 18 US patents with 14 pending and has numerous related foreign patents. His inventions include system design and process innovations as well as power electronic components, circuits and process control strategies. He is a life member of the IEEE Industrial Applications, Power Electronics and Industrial Electronics Societies.

Mr. Raymond Cook was Vice President of Engineering (retired) at Inductoheat Inc. He is a registered Professional Engineer in the State of Michigan, with a B.S. degree from Western Michigan University and M.B.A. from Wayne State University, Michigan. Mr. Cook’s credits include a great deal of "know-how" and he has been involved in the pioneering designs of high-, medium- and low-frequency solid state inverters, load matching equipment, machine and system designs, process control and monitoring systems for a wide variety of induction heating and heat treating applications including hardening, annealing, tempering, stress relieving, shrink fitting and many others. This includes the InductoScan Technology, which has become an acknowledged standard in modern induction scan hardening. Mr. Cook has been with Inductoheat for more than 36 years. He has written numerous technical publications including several chapters for various Handbooks.
