Here are some of the advantages of induction heating that make it a popular choice for these industries:
Energy efficiency: Efficiency values higher than 90% are obtained due to the proper design of the power converter and the coil. In addition, high temperatures can be reached quickly and easily as the ambient heat loss is significantly reduced.
Precise heating: Induction heating can be used to heat materials very precisely. The electromagnetic field can be tightly controlled, making it easy to heat a small area to a high temperature without affecting the surrounding area.
Safety and cleanliness – There is no thermal or air pollution as the target is heated directly and no fuel substances are used.
High Efficiency – efficiency values higher than 90% are obtained due to the proper design of the power converter and the coil. In addition, high temperatures can be reached quickly and easily as the ambient heat loss is significantly reduced.
Improved control – precise regulation of the heating power can be achieved via appropriate coil design and control of the power converter. As a result, additional features such as local heating, pre-heating predefined temperature profiles may be implemented.
Industrial automation option – induction heating allows improvement of both the productivity and the quality of the processes. Quality is additionally guaranteed as the heating is contactless (no interference by the heating tool).
Overall, induction heating is a valuable tool for a variety of industries. It is a precise, efficient, safe, and clean way to heat materials, and it can be used for a wide range of applications.
