What is


Inductotherm Group companies use electromagnetic induction for melting, heating and welding applications across multiple industries. But what exactly is induction? And how does it differ from other heating methods?

To the typical engineer, induction is a fascinating method of heating. Watching a piece of metal in a coil turn cherry red in a matter of seconds can be surprising to those unfamiliar with induction heating. Induction heating equipment requires an understanding of physics, electromagnetism, power electronics and process control, but the basic concepts behind induction heating are simple to understand.
