Induction straightening uses a coil to generate localised heat in pre-defined heating zones. As these zones cool, they contract, pulling the metal into a flatter condition.
Our time-saving deck and bulkhead straightening solutions are used in the shipbuilding industry (deck straightening), construction industry (straightening of bridges) and trains/trucks industry (production and repair of locomotives, rolling stock and heavy goods vehicles).
- Customers report minimum 50% time-savings compared to traditional methods
- Productivity increase through precision in heat-transfer; no need to remove heat-sensitive components
- Working radius of up to 60 meters (197’) from the heat generator
Induction heating is widely used to straighten ship decks and bulkheads.
Terac works just as well on bulkheads and other vertical structures as it does on decks.
For added ergonomic comfort, the handheld transformer can be attached to a balancer and suspended from a magnet or wire rope.
Operators can work with Terac within a 45m radius of the base unit. An optional extension unit lengthens the work area to 60m radius.
Note the easy-to-use controls placed on the handle. It usually takes only a couple of hours to train an operator to use the Terac system.
