Applications

Induction heating allow the targeted heating of an object for applications including surface hardening, forging, end heating, annealing, melting, brazing, soldering and shrink fitting. Iron and its alloys respond best to induction heating, due to their ferromagnetic nature. Eddy currents can, however, be generated in any conductor, and magnetic hysteresis can occur in any magnetic material. Induction heating is often used to heat graphite crucibles (melting precious materials) and is used extensively in the semiconductor industry for the heating of silicon and other semiconductors.
