Bega Special Tools introduces new portable multi-purpose induction heater
Bega Special Tools introduces the MF Quick-Heater 3.0-3,5, a new portable, multi-purpose induction heater with maximum power output of 3,5 kW. This brand-new model is part of the MF Quick-heater 3.0 series, used for industrial heating of all kinds of ferro-magnetic parts. The heaters can be deployed for mounting, dismounting and pre-heating purposes. Weighing only 7.85 kg and having a size that can fit into a small carrying case, this powerful tool offers solutions for difficult circumstances where other systems are impossible to use.
The generator is combined with a flexible inductor which can be wrapped in or around a workpiece. It heats parts very fast or very controlled, depending on the application: dismounting, mounting, or pre-heating. Examples of applications are bearings, sleeves, gears, inner rings etc. The heater is easy to use - just plug into the mains 230V - with four different heating modes. Two temperature sensors make it possible to measure the internal and external temperature of a workpiece. When this Delta-T function is enabled, the maximum preset temperature difference between two points can never be exceeded. Smart electronics take care of an optimal operation frequency. The heating process is displayed in a 4.3-inch touchscreen. A log function can save or export data via the USB connection.
Induction heating is a highly efficient and eco-friendly method for industrial heating applications. There are many other reasons why to look at induction heating in comparison with conventional methods. Heating is controlled, fast and energy efficient. The quality of work is better, it enhances machine up-time. Since there is no open fire, there is no polluting smoke or noise. Personal safety is also a serious point to take into consideration.
The MF Quick-Heater consists of one generator MF 3.0-3.5kW, 230V; two magnetic temperature sensors; one pair of heat resistant gloves; flexible inductors, available in optional lengths of 5m, 7.5m and 10m, for a maximum temperature of 180°C.

Schaeffler strengthens its service business in the Industrial division
- Acquisition expands Schaeffler’s range of rolling bearing mounting and dismounting products
- 100 percent shareholding acquired by share purchase agreement signed on July 28, 2021
- A key step in the expansion of Schaeffler’s service business under its "Roadmap 2025" strategy
SCHWEINFURT | July 30, 2021 | Schaeffler has acquired BEGA International B.V. (Bega), a leading manufacturer of special tools for mounting and dismounting rolling bearings. The acquisition marks another step in the expansion of Schaeffler’s lifecycle service portfolio. Access to the IIoT platform created for Schaeffler’s OPTIME condition monitoring solution also opens up new possibilities for Bega’s intelligent maintenance tools. Customers will also benefit. They will have a common user interface for all touchpoints, which will help ensure a seamless user experience across the rolling bearing lifecycle, from installation to monitoring and maintenance, right through to repair. Customers and partners will be able to source solutions and services for rolling bearing maintenance and monitoring from a single provider and will benefit from more streamlined access to a range of upkeep and repair solutions.

Safe bearing assembly with induction heaters 4.0 technology
Meet the new generation of low frequency induction heaters. These are used for controlled heating of bearings, gears and other machine parts. By using smart processor technology, a tension-free and monitored heating process is better controlled. The process can be recorded by the log function. .
Correct bearing assembly is one of the critical processes that affect the lifespan of a bearing. Requirements for correct installation are increasing. Especially for very expensive bearings or for bearings in hard-to-reach locations. With the introduction of the new series, Bega meets the demand from the industry to be able to exercise a great(er) control over the heating and assembly process.
Two series have been developed: a BASIC series and a SMART series.
The BASIC series replace part of the current BETEX range. These heaters work with a simple keyboard and have a single temperature sensor. Heating can be done in time or temperature mode. Smart electronics ensure optimal heating and efficient use of power.
The SMART series is used when more control over the heating process is needed. These have a modern easy-to-use touchscreen. The heating process can be seen in a clear graph. Data can be saved and externally documented via a USB connection. By means of a double temperature measurement (Delta T) it is possible to fully influence the temperature progress.
Now it is possible for the operator to determines exactly at what rate a bearing is being heated. Speed is therefore not decisive, but stress-free heating is. This prevents damage.
Induction heating is a sustainable way of heating. It replaces old techniques such as ovens, oil baths or open fire, where much more energy is consumed. These methods cause pollution and safety risks. BETEX heaters are robust and made for industrial and intensive use. These modern induction heaters are very efficient in their energy consumption.
Founded in 1978 and headquartered in Vaassen in The Netherlands, Bega Special Tools manufactures and distributes special tools for safe, cost-effective mounting and dismounting of bearings and transmission parts. These tools substantially improve the quality and ease of maintenance and installation of rotating parts in machines, resulting in longer lifespan. Exported to over 60 countries worldwide, Bega products are used in production and maintenance departments of MRO and OEM companies within various types of industries, comprising special solutions for the wind energy, railway, mining and steel industries.
