What are the parts of an induction heating system?

Our systems include a power supply, cables, a workhead and a work coil.

Our power supply converts AC line power to a higher frequency alternating current, delivers it over a specially-designed cable to a workhead containing a bank of capacitors and a custom-designed work coil. This combination employs the principle of resonance to create an electromagnetic field within the coil to efficiently deliver energy to a workpiece.

The workpiece is placed in that electromagnetic field, inducing eddy currents in the workpiece. The friction from these currents generates precise, clean, non-contact heating. A water cooling system is generally required to cool the work coil and induction system.
