A workpiece for an induction hardening is provided. The workpiece has a first inclined surface, a second inclined surface, and a connecting surface connecting the first inclined surface and the second inclined surface on a side toward which the first inclined surface and the second inclined surface approach each other. The connecting surface has a recessed portion. A hardened layer formed at the first inclined surface and another hardened layer formed at the second inclined surface do not overlap each other at the recessed portion.


A heating apparatus, a heating method, and a heating coil are provided by which a corner portion and a bottom portion of a recessed surface extending in a longitudinal direction of a workpiece can be heated in an equal manner. Heating coils are opposed to a portion of an annular worpiece having a continuously provided recessed surface, and the heating coils and the annular worpiece are moved relative to each other to heat the recessed surface by induction heating. The heating apparatus includes a first heating coil having a first corner conductor portion to be opposed to a first corner portion of the recessed surface and a first bottom conductor portion connected to the first corner conductor portion to be opposed to the bottom portion, and a second heating coil having a second corner conductor portion to be opposed to a second corner portion of the recessed surface and a second bottom conductor portion connected to the second corner conductor portion to be opposed to the bottom portion.

Object of the present invention is to provide a welding method prevented the fracture at the spot weld zone by recovering the strength of a spot weld zone, namely, the ductility and the toughness in the spot weld zone, and a weld structure manufactured by the method. In the welding method, the steel sheets are heat treated and spot welded and a spot weld zone composed of a weld nugget and a heat affected zone is formed at the outer periphery of the weld nugget, spot welded steel sheets are tempering treated by applying a high-frequency electrical current on the spot weld zone and a heat accumulation zone elevated a temperature is formed at the outer periphery of the weld nugget and a hardness at the weld nugget is made 150% or less of the hardness of the heat treated steel sheets and a hardness at the heat affected zone is made 30% to 90% of the hardness at the weld nugget before the tempering treatment; and the diameter of the weld nugget NR (mm) satisfies the conditional expression (1).


An induction heating device and an induction heating method are provided. The entire areas to be heated of the workpiece, even a large workpiece, can be readily and approximately uniformly heated to a predetermined high temperature, and uniform heating is possible even when the workpiece deforms in a non-uniform manner during heating. When areas to be heated H1, H2 are established on a workpiece W so as to extend in one direction and the areas to be heated H1, H2 are induction-heated, the deformation amount on one edge of the areas to be heated H1, H2 is different from that on the other. This induction heating device includes: heating coils 451 facing a portion of the areas to be heated H1, H2 when the workpiece W is induction-heated; and a relative transfer means for transferring the workpiece W and the heating coils 451 along one direction in a relative manner, and the heating coils 451 are disposed so as to correspond to the areas to be heated H1, H2 during the heating period.


A heating method, a heating apparatus, and a method of manufacturing a press-molded article using the heating method are provided. A pair of electrodes is arranged on a workpiece along a first direction. Each electrode has a length extending across a first heating area of a workpiece in the first direction. At least one of the electrodes is moved in the first heating area and along a second direction intersecting the first direction at a constant speed while applying electric current between the pair of electrodes to heat the first heating area by direct resistance heating. The electric current applied between the pair of electrodes is adjusted such that a heating temperature is adjusted for each segment into which the first heating area is divided so as to be side by side in the second direction.

A jig of a heating apparatus is provided. The jig supports a ring-shaped workpiece when conveying and heating the workpiece. The jig includes a central structure unit, a rotary drive mechanism accommodated in the central structure unit, and a workpiece support connected to the central structure unit and configured such that the workpiece is placed on the workpiece support to surround the central structure unit. The workpiece support includes a plurality of rotating rollers arranged in a circumferential direction around the central structure unit. The central structure unit includes a conveyor connecting portion to suspend the workpiece support together with the workpiece placed on the workpiece support, and a driver connecting portion from which a driving force is input to the rotary drive mechanism. The rotary drive mechanism rotates the rotating rollers by the driving force to rotate the workpiece along a ring shape of the workpiece.


A shaft holding sleeve is inserted in a fitting hole of a compressing machine of a shaft diameter enlarging apparatus that applies an axial compression stress to a shaft stock to hold an end portion of the shaft stock during a shaft diameter enlarging process for radially enlarging a portion of the shaft stock. The shaft holding sleeve includes a front end surface to be inserted in the fitting hole, an exposed portion to be exposed to an outside of the fitting hole, and at least one air communication passage extending from the front end surface to a surface of the exposed portion. A jig may be attached to the shaft diameter enlarging apparatus to facilitate the insertion of the shaft holding sleeve into the fitting hole.


In a direct resistance heating method, a current is applied to a plate workpiece having a varying cross-sectional area to heat the workpiece such that a high-temperature heating region and a non-high-temperature heating region are provided side by side. The method includes a preparation step of arranging a pair of electrodes on the workpiece, and a heating step of moving a first electrode from one end of the high-temperature heating region while applying a current to the pair of electrodes, stopping the movement of the first electrode when the first electrode reaches the other end of the high-temperature heating region, and stopping the current from being applied to the pair of electrodes when a predetermined time elapses after stopping the first electrode. A press-molded product manufacturing method includes pressing the workpiece that has been heated by direct resistance heating method using a press die to perform hot press molding.


A heating method, a heating apparatus and a method for fabricating a press-molded article using the heating method is provided. A plate workpiece has a main heating target region having a cross sectional area monotonically varying in a first direction and a sub heating target region provided adjacent to and integrally with the main heating target region. After heating the sub heating target region, the main heating target region is heated by a direct resistance heating to heat the main heating target region and the sub heating target region to be in a target temperature range. To heat the main heating target region, at least one of a pair of electrodes arranged to extend across the main heating target region in a second direction intersecting the first direction is moved in the first direction and at a constant speed, with electric current between the pair of electrodes being adjusted.
