Induction heating provides precise, consistent heat to very small parts resulting in repeatable, quality seals. By heating with medium frequency, arcing (which occurs at high frequencies) is avoided.
The solder formed a relatively uniform domed seal around the fiber despite the asymmetry of the open C coil. It took under 10 seconds to heat the part to soldering temperature
Induction heating provides ability to use same equipment for both assembly and repair, hands-free heating that involves no operator skill for manufacturing, and uniform control of heat from part to part
Induction melting provides hands-free heating that involves no operator skill for manufacturing, amounts of glass are precisely controlled by the glass preforms and even flow of glass creates aesthetically pleasing bond.
To heat a stainless steel housing to 18750 F in order to fuse a piece of R6 glass to the inside of the housing.
