What makes up an induction heating system?

Components of an induction heating system

Power Supply

The induction heating power supply converts AC line power to a high frequency alternating current.

RF Power Cable

The high frequency energy from the power supply is applied to this specially-constructed cable


The RF power cable connects to the workhead, which contains necessary capacitors, other circuitry and a work coil

Work Coil

This water-cooled coil is used to focus an electromagnetic field around your workpiece

Your Workpiece

The electromagnetic field induces eddy currents in your workpiece when placed in it. The friction from these currents generates precise, clean, non-contact heat in your workpiece

Cooling System

A water cooling system is generally required to cool the power supply, workhead and work coil
