The Induction Heating Guide

What if you could heat metal parts without any physical contact, at speeds unheard off with conventional methods...with pinpoint accuracy, consistency, and up to 90% efficiency...without open flames, loud noise, or harmful fumes?

This guide will show you how all of the above can be accomplished with lean, green induction heating. If you're searching for an industrial heating alternative, we'll show you exactly how this technology works and how it can benefit your manufacturing process.

No other heating method offers such an impressive combination of economy, quality, and speed for processes such as industrial hardening, brazing, annealing, tempering, soldering, and heat staking. With the proper setup, even non-metals can be efficiently heated. And this technology will easily fit on your manufacturing floor, eliminating the delay and cost of off-line processing and outsourcing. Whether your process requirements dictate a benchtop heating unit for a work cell, a fully-automated production system – or something in between – there's an induction heating solution that will meet your needs.

We hope you'll use this guide to learn about induction heating and decide that this innovative heating technology is worth further investigation for your application. You can access the entire guide through the links below, or click on the link at left to download the convenient 12-page PDF version.

What is Induction Heating?

Learn the basic theory and principles of induction heating. Watch a short video clip that demonstrates how induction heating works. Learn how the characteristics of the part – metal or plastic, magnetic or non-magnetic, thick or thin, etc. – are important factors to consider.

Advantages Of Induction Heating

Why choose induction heating over convection, radiant, open flame or another heating method? For many modern manufacturing processes, induction heating offers an attractive combination of speed, consistency and control. Here's a short summary of the major advantages that modern solid state induction heating offers for lean manufacturing.
