Thermo King, the world leader in transport temperature control systems for trucks and trailers, recently installed an automatic brazing machine from EFD Induction. The machine is employed to braze vibration absorbers, components used in the suction lines of air conditioning and refrigeration systems.
The Thermo King machine features an innovative ‘separable’ coil design. “This use of separable coils was decisive in winning the Thermo King order,” says Bjørn Røsvik of EFD Induction. “Indeed, it was essential for the whole automation process, making it possible to go from manual brazing to a fully automated, continuous production flow.”
The brazing machine is powered by an EFD Induction Sinac 18/25 generator. The Sinac model is a ‘Twin’ version with two independent power outputs. Each power output has a split transformer function that made it possible to install separable coils. The full system comprises an automatic handling solution, a power source and a chiller unit.
