Once the material has melted, the induction power is shut off, and the molten mass can be dropped or forced into a mold for forming. This application is leveraged in the jewelry, dental, electronics, and aerospace research industries for a contaminant-free environment.

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.
