Induction heating equipment made in Wisconsin involves heating an electrically conductive material, such as copper or steel, by using controlled radio frequency (RF) energy to create an electrical current within the object. Unlike other heating methods that rely on an external heat source to heat material, induction heating circulates electrical currents to generate heat from within the object itself. Products that are induction heated use thermal conduction to quickly and evenly transfer the heat from the surface to the object to its core. The induction heating process ultimately strengthens a material to its optimum physical condition to best meet its intended use.
The induction heating process is used to:
