Perfect solutions for gentle and fast mounting of rolling bearings

simatherm heating devices can be used to efficiently heat rolling bearings and other ring-shaped metal parts. They enable fast and clean assembly and replace conventional heating methods such as hotplates, hot oil baths, open flames and ovens. During the heating process, only the workpiece heats up, but the device remains cold. simatherm induction heating devices are used for workpieces weighing up to 300 kg.

  • Precise, even, quick heating
  • Automatic demagnetisation
  • There is no risk of damage (from excessive mechanical stress, open flames, dirty oil baths, excessively hot ovens and plates)
  • User friendly
  • Increased operational safety
  • Selectable power reduction for heating up smaller parts

Prevent premature bearing failure

Over 16% of premature bearing failures are caused by improper installation. The lack of proper tooling and know-how often leads to new bearings being subjected to high levels of stress and subsurface damage. This makes premature bearing failure inevitable. In order to prevent this, the correct procedure should be employed using professional, specialist tools throughout the installation process. Only in this way will the new bearings reach their expected service life.

Heating with induction

The heating of rolling bearings and ring-shaped metal parts by induction has proved to be an excellent method for installing these parts with both speed and care. An alternating electro-magnetic field induces a high current directly in the workpiece and raises this precisely to the prescribed installation temperature in a controlled manner.
