Curing Ceramic Fiber

A special steel tube and coil combination is used to build an induction heating oven to cure the fiber on a continuous basis. The ceramic fiber travels in an alumina tube inside a hot steel tube

Heating a Kovar Ferrule for Glass Soldering

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

Hermetic Sealing a Ferrule & Fiber Optic Cable

To heat a Kovar ferrule and fiber optic cable to 297°F within 10 seconds for a soldering application, to form a hermetic seal

Solder Fiber Optic Cable to Ferrule & Preform

Induction heating provides rapid localized heat only where needed, repeatable, consistent results with clean, controllable joints

Hermetically sealing a fiber optic cable in a kovar ferrule

Induction heating provides instant start up time, requiring very little power resources, pin point accuracy, a clean source of heat which is easily integrated into existing automated systems

Curing Epoxy On A Laser A Laser Diode Assembly

To heat epoxy on a laser diode assembly to 250°F within 5 seconds for a curing application

Induction Melting Glass for Fiber Drawing

To heat a metal susceptor vessel to 2200°F within 25 minutes with induction for a fiberglass melting application

Soldering Ferrule and Module Assembly

To heat ferrule and module assemblies for a soldering application in the fiber optics industry.

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.
