TERAC INDUCTION STRAIGHTENING
Our time-saving deck and bulkhead straightening solutions are found 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).
Induction straightening uses a coil to generate localized heat in pre-defined heating zones. As these zones cool, they contract, "pulling" the metal into a flatter condition.
What are the benefits?
Induction straightening is extremely fast. When straightening ship decks and bulkheads, our customers often report minimum 50% time savings compared to traditional methods. Without induction, straightening on a large vessel can easily consume tens of thousands of man-hours. The precision of induction also boosts productivity. For example, when straightening truck chassis, there is no need to remove heat-sensitive components. Induction is so precise it leaves adjacent materials unaffected.
