What Benefits Does Induction bonding Offer? 

  • Meets tight production tolerances with precise localized heat to small areas creating pinpoint accuracy

  • Increases production rates with faster heating cycles

  • Reduces defect rates with repeatable, reliable heat

  • Eliminates variability from operator-to-operator, shift-to-shift

  • Maintains metallurgical characteristics of the individual metals

Popular Induction bonding Application Notes

Select from our most requested bonding notes to learn how induction can improve the efficiency, effectiveness and safety of your heating process.


Induction Bonding Metal to Plastic for Dental ToolsInduction Bonding Metal to Plastic for Dental Tools

To prepare for induction bonding, the plastic handle was slid onto the picks or mirror and placed inside the induction heating coil and heated

Induction Bonding Steel CannulasInduction Bonding Steel Cannulas

For each size cannula, the power delivered to the part was optimized to create a bond between the cannula and its bushing, without discoloring the steel of the cannula or causing the bushing to become opaque

Induction Bonding Aluminum & Carbon Fiber CouponsInduction Bonding Aluminum & Carbon Fiber Coupons

To enable the process of bonding with induction, three custom-designed single position multiple-turn coils were built to generate the required heating for this application (helical, pancake and u-shaped coils).

Bonding Steel Wire; Rubber MoldingBonding Steel Wire; Rubber Molding

To heat steel wire embedded in rubber molding for a bonding application in the automotive industry

Bonding Steel Tubes to Plastic Tubes with InductionBonding Steel Tubes to Plastic Tubes with Induction

Bonding with induction took just five seconds with our lowest power unit to deliver the bond just where it was needed.


Debonding Rubber Gaskets, End RingsDebonding Rubber Gaskets, End Rings

It took a modest amount of time to debond the rubber gasket from the metal end ring in this release/debonding induction application. Heat is delivered only where needed.

Induction Bonding Adhesive to a Steel Washer (Automotive)Induction Bonding Adhesive to a Steel Washer (Automotive)

Bonding with induction heated a steel washer to the target temperature to enabling adhesive curing; it will be part of an automated process for an automotive industry application

Induction Bonding Plastic with a Steel Gasket (Automotive)Induction Bonding Plastic with a Steel Gasket (Automotive)

Induction bonding enables rapid heating, can easily be integrated into the client's manufacturing process due to modest space requirements and delivers a highly repeatable process.

De-bonding a Magnetic Steel Paint Can LidDe-bonding a Magnetic Steel Paint Can Lid

The goal of the induction bonding process is to quickly and cleanly remove the can lid and to pour out paint to reformulate. Induction enabled rapid removal of the paint can lids.

Bonding a Stainless Steel Sheet to a Soundproofing MatBonding a Stainless Steel Sheet to a Soundproofing Mat

The part was assembled with the mat in contact with the stainless steel sheet. The part was set on non-conductive material, and placed inside the coil.

About Induction Heating

Induction heating is a fast, efficient, precise and repeatable non-contact method for heating metals or other electrically-conductive materials. The material may be a metal such as brass, aluminum, copper or steel or it can be a semiconductor such as silicon carbide, carbon or graphite. To heat non-conductive materials such as plastics or glass, induction is used to heat an electrically-conductive susceptor, typically graphite, which then transfers the heat to the non-conducting material.
