Our UMH process

The inductive UMH process (Uniform Magnetic Heating) uses a low-frequency magnetic field for heating. Within this alternating magnetic field, components can be uniformly monitored and heated in a low-tension manner.

The UMH process is suitable for the following applications:

  • Pre-heating/post-heating
  • Reduction of internal stress
  • Shrinking
  • Demagnetization
  • Heat treatment before forming


System types

pro-beam offers three system types for various component sizes, with S-, M- and L-Lines. In addition, there are also various configuration levels possible upon request. These machines can be used as an integrated module or as a standalone system. This ensures a high level of flexibility when integrating UMH systems into industrial production processes.

The compact UMH S-Line is commonly used as an integrated module in interlinked systems (e.g. pro-beam Gearline). It offers perfect conditions for heating smaller components such as gear wheels for the automotive industry.

Alternatively, the UMH L-Line was designed for workpieces up to 30 kg and the L-Line was designed for large components with a weight of up to 50 kg. Both machines can achieve temperatures in the workpiece up to 500 degrees Celsius.
