WHICH INDUCTION HEATER DO I NEED?

PROMOTION ARTICLE ON BEHALF OF INDUCTION INNOVATIONS

Induction heaters use magnetic flux to quickly heat ferrous metal and some aluminium parts, but which one is right for your application?

Our portable induction heater, the Mini-Ductor® Venom™, uses 1,000 watts of power, so when you do you need 2,000 watts of power provided by the Inductor® Pro-Max™?

To answer these questions, we’ve developed this handy guide to give you clarity.

Additionally, induction heating can be used to harden automotive parts to decrease wear and increase their lifespan. It can also be used to expand bearings so they can be mounted on an axle or other type of rod. These applications require either a service, hot plate or more sophisticated induction heating equipment.
