For most metals, melting is the first step in producing a useful product. Four Inductotherm Group companies are leading manufacturers of melt shop and automated pouring systems for a full range of ferrous, non-ferrous, precious and reactive metals.
Many metals require heating and/or heat treating to achieve their optimum physical properties. Heating also is used as part of other metal forming processes. The Inductotherm Group companies manufacture heating and/or heat treating equipment.
Brazing and Soldering
Despite the many different ways to braze or solder a joint, there are specific reasons to choose induction brazing over others, including better joint quality, reduced oxidation, faster heating cycles, and more consistent results. Inductotherm Group companies manufacture custom, state-of-the-art brazing and soldering systems for a variety of applications.
Rolling mills require a wide range of thermal processes, which is why Inductotherm Group companies manufacture thermal equipment for both hot and cold rolling mill applications. For hot rolling mills, Inductotherm manufactures equipment to heat and reheat slab, bar and rod source materials.
Inductotherm Group companies also manufacture thermal equipment for cold rolling mill applications, such as melting, holding and heating zinc and aluminum coatings.
The application of heat is often key to many manufacturing processes, such as welding, cutting, bending, shaping, fitting and sealing, to name just a few. Inductotherm Group companies build equipment to perform a variety of thermal processing functions.
The creation and casting of superalloys and many other advanced and reactive metals require sophisticated vacuum or controlled atmosphere melting and remelting systems. Three Inductotherm Group companies are world leaders in the manufacture of these technologically advanced systems and related materials.
While most Inductotherm Group companies manufacture equipment for the thermal processing of metals, several companies in the Group build equipment for the thermal processing of other materials.
All Inductotherm Group companies offer their customers the industry's highest level of technical support and service, but for several companies in the Group, providing such services is their principal business. These companies operate well-equipped facilities located at major industrial centers around the world, providing field service worldwide.
