simatherm IH 045

Heat the most common rolling bearings up to 45 kg

Product request

World's first controllable induction heater with an app

The IH 045 is suitable for heating small and medium-sized workpieces up to 45 kg. Due to the external induction coil, the unit works extremely efficiently. The power can be adjusted in eight stages if required.

  • Connectivity with the "simatec World of Maintenance" app
  • Remote control
  • For rolling bearings weighing up to 45 kg
  • For workpieces with an inner diameter of 20 to 310 mm
  • Available for voltages of 100, 115 and 230 V
  • 8-stage power consumption combined with smaller yokes, allows smaller bearings to be heated safely and quickly with less energy
  • Extendable bearing support arms
  • Smallest and fastest device in its performance class
  • Smallest external induction coil
  • Supplied with three yokes as standard
  • Particularly compact design - including the yokes only 17 kg in weight
  • 3 year manufacturer warranty
  • Can heat a 28 kg bearing from 20 °C to 110 °C in 20 minutes, thus saving time and energy
  • Automatic demagnetization
