Induction Heating and Heat Treating for Aerospace Applications

Induction heating is used to produce high quality, reliable aerospace components as well as unique combinations of engineering characteristics.

Electromagnetic induction is used for heating ferro-magnetic and nonmagnetic metallic alloys, as well as certain composite materials. Induction heating (IH) generates heat internally at well-defined regions on the workpiece, which shortens process cycles times and results in high production rates.
