Nakashimada is a leading manufacturer of forging systems for a variety of industries, including automotive and aerospace. The NP121HF Hot Former is a two-die three-blow hot forming system that rapidly and efficiently heats and forges fasteners. It is a complete turnkey system that offers clients the latest output-enhancing hot forming technology.
Within the system, the heating component is driven by the Ambrell EKOHEAT 45kW/100kHz induction heating system. Induction’s consistency leads to unparalleled repeatability, while its rapid heating boosts productivity. Additionally, it only directs heat where it’s needed on the fastener, which is efficient and minimizes residual stress on parts. Finally, induction’s instant on/instant off heating minimizes energy consumption. For these reasons, induction is an ideal solution for “hot heading” or hot forging.
"We’re pleased to partner with Nakashimada and provide induction heating systems for their new, cutting-edge Hot Former systems," says Ambrell Director of Sales Tom Dickerson. "Nakashimada has nearly a century of experience in providing industry-leading forging systems to thousands of clients, while Ambrell has over 25 years of experience in providing induction heating systems to thousands of clients. So the partnership was natural and a true win-win for both companies and Hot Former owners.”
