National Course and Webinars

 
NADCA offers a variety of options to address all of your educational needs.  Some of NADCA’s most popular education option are Webinars. 

Webinars are live web broadcasts presented weekly.  Attending a webinar is an excellent way to obtain vital information without the hassle or cost of travel.  Topics for webinars include, but are not limited to Safety, Results of Surveys and Studies, Various Processes, Economic Industry Data, NADCA R&D Research Results and New Technologies. A webinar presentation will not only address important information on the topic but also provide adequate time for questions, answers and discussion.

Below you will find a schedule of  National Courses and Upcoming Webinars.

    Energy Efficiency of Induction Melting Systems for On-Demand 01/22/2020 Induction melting systems specially designed for On-Demand Melting applications are a subset of commercially available induction furnaces. Although their working principle is the same, on demand melting systems are designed to produce small quantities matched with the immediate demand of the die casting machine. One of the implications of achieving high melting rates with an induction furnace is the risk of incurring in higher energy loses due to the higher power needed to achieve rapid melting. Thus, monitoring energy efficiency is key to developing successful on demand melting systems based on induction melting technologies. This study presents an analysis on the main factors influencing the energy efficiency of induction coils such as energy loss through the cooling fluid, load size, tuning of the resonant circuit, and frequency. An experimental setup was developed to measure water flow, voltage, temperature, and energy consumption. These measurements were later utilized to perform Add to Calendar
