InductoScan systems from Inductoheat feature a modular design that provides flexibility for a range of power supplies, controls, and components to be integrated onto a common base. The units can be customized to perform heat-treating applications such as scan, single-shot, lift/rotate, pick and place, rotary index, and linear transfer. Several systems are equipped with two independent power supplies, thus allowing each spindle to provide completely different operations or precise power control of identical operations. An upgraded control package features Allen Bradley Compact Logix/SERCOS Drive controls to eliminate the need for calibration, home switching, and servo homing routines. A Windows XP PC-based human-machine interface with color graphics and program storage is interfaced to the machine's programmable logic controller.
