What Is Induction Heating?
Induction heating is a non-contact manufacturing process used for bonding, hardening, or softening conductive metals. It offers advantages such as speed, accuracy, repeatability, and economy, making it a preferred choice for various applications including brazing, soldering, heat treating, and bonding.
Induction heating induces heat within the part itself by circulating electrical currents, resulting in no product contamination, oxidation, heat damage, or distortion, and high part quality. The process time and temperature can be precisely controlled within tight parameters, unlike other heating methods that may require extra time to heat up and cool down the part.
Modern induction heating systems are environmentally friendly, generating minimal waste heat, harmful emissions, smoke, and noise compared to older fossil fuel powered systems. Overall, induction heating is an efficient and reliable process for conductive metal manufacturing, providing superior results and a more eco-friendly alternative.
Induction Heating Systems
An induction heating system consists of a solid-state RF power supply and a copper coil. When a conductive metal part is placed within the coil, circulating eddy currents are induced, generating precisely localized heat. A cooling mechanism, such as a water chiller or heat exchanger, is necessary to remove waste heat from the system, although some power supplies utilize forced air cooling.
Induction systems are available in a range of power levels and frequencies, with lower frequencies most effective for larger parts requiring deep heat penetration and higher frequencies more effective for smaller parts. Fairview Coil Fabrication offers unbiased system recommendations based on your process requirements and application.
Overall, induction heating systems are reliable and efficient, offering precise and localized heating for conductive metals.
