Inductor Technology

Microfusion technology allows identical inductors to be produced from the same 3-D manufacturing mold. The inductor (the business end of induction heating machines used for metal hardening, brazing and other metal-heating processes) consists of specially shaped conductive material through which alternating electrical current is passed. Traditional inductor manufacturing is a one-off process; copper tubing is shaped by hand to conform to engineering specifications. This makes it exceptionally difficult to manufacture absolutely identical inductors with the same performance characteristics. With Microfusion technology, multiple inductors can be produced from the same pre-qualified mold. This increases repeatability and consistency when multiple induction systems are running the same process, and significantly reduces maintenance and calibration time when inductors need to be changed.
