A heating apparatus and a heating method are provided. The heating apparatus includes a coil configured to receive AC power to form a magnetic field that inductively heats a workpiece, a spray unit configured to spray cooling fluid including a liquid to the coil in a form of mist at least during a period in which the AC power is supplied to the coil. Alternatively, the spray unit may be configured to spray the cooling fluid in the form of mist to a heating target portion of the workpiece placed in the magnetic field at least during the period in which the AC power is supplied to the coil.


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 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 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 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.

Provided are: a welded structural member whose spot-welded part has both strength and ductility, and whose rupture strength proven by a rupture test such as a cross tensile test is high; and a method for welding such a structural member. The welded part 3 of the welded structural member 1 made of the above steel plates bonded by overlapping their faces and forming the welded part 3 by spot welding includes: a molten and solidified part 4; and a heat-affected zone 5 surrounding the molten and solidified part 4. The hardness on the welded surface increases to harder than the hardness of the steel plates 2 (base material) along a direction from a region outside the heat-affected zone 5 toward the heat-affected zone 5.
