WHAT IS INDUCTION HEATING?
Induction heating is a process used to heat metals by exploiting electromagnetic induction: the component that requires heating is positioned near an inductor, which, through the generation of an alternating electromagnetic field, transfers energy to the metal by heating it.
Induction heating is one of the most widespread methods in industrial environments as it enables energy and process efficiency to increase, reducing consumption, and consequently, costs.
WHY CHOOSE INDUCTION HEATING?
There is not only one reason that exists to favour induction heating, but rather a mix of factors that make this process highly advantageous from many points of view:
- Environmental impact reduction
- Reduction of costs, therefore greater commercial product value
- Improvement of the finished product due to process automation
- Controlled plant shutdown risks.
