A client in the high voltage contracting business wanted to move away from flame heating, so they turned to THE LAB at Ambrell. They needed to heat four types of copper busbars for a brazing application. The target temperature was 1,400 °F (760 °C). THE LAB determined that an Ambrell EKOHEAT® 30 kW, 50-150 kHz induction heating power supply with a custom-designed single position multiple-turn helical coil would meet their objectives.

A client needed to heat the stainless-steel substrate of a solar panel shingle in order to melt the polymer encapsulant, allowing two shingles to bond together. THE LAB at Ambrell determined that an Ambrell EASYHEATTM 1.2 kW, 150-400 kHz solid state induction heating power supply would work well for this bonding application along with a workhead and coil specifically designed for this application. The assembly needed to be heated to 266 ºF (130 ºC).
