3 Advantages of Induction Heating vs Torch Heating | Ambrell

Brazing is perhaps our most popular induction heating application. We consistently see companies moving to induction brazing from torch heating. Here are the primary reasons you may want to consider induction if you’re currently torch brazing, or using a torch for another heating process: 

1. Superior Repeatability

When induction is properly implemented into a process, you can count on the same result every time. Operator inconsistency with a torch sometimes leads to varying results and uneven heating. If an operator moves on, or you need multiple operators over different shifts or days, quality can become an issue. 

2. Faster Heating

Induction typically heats parts to temperature more rapidly than a torch, resulting in a higher production rate.

3. Process Safety

There is no open flame with induction, resulting in enhanced workplace safety. Additionally, it introduces less heat into the working environment, creating a better environment for employees. 


Induction heating versus other heading methods

The graphic above compares induction heating with other heat sources. More transferable heat means that the energy is used and transferred in a localized, precise manner. The graphic illustrates that induction heating is clearly superior over other heating methods often applied in a production process.

So, in a nutshell, the benefits of induction are a production-boosting rate of heating, less footprint due to reduced energy use and enhanced workplace safety. In short, induction helps you become  cleaner and greener.

Now, expert guidance is critical when determining the right induction solution for an application. Are you considering switching from torch or furnace heating to induction?
