Induction Curing

How Does Induction Curing Work?

Induction heating provides a better solution for adhesive curing than air curing, hot fan curing or curing in large ovens which must be run continuously. Induction is used to heat the metallic material on which the curing adhesive has been applied

Induction curing Benefits 

  • 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
