Before the dawn of recorded history, man discovered he could make useful tools from copper and its alloys. Today, the metal that was first made into simple axes and arrowheads is the essential ingredient in products ranging from water systems and church bells to electrical transmission networks and computer chips.

Customers of Inductotherm Group companies use our thermal processing systems to melt, cast, form, atomize, roll, forge, extrude, draw, solder, braze, weld, groove, cut, bond and coat copper and its alloys.

Inductotherm Group companies also are significant users of high-quality copper products. We use millions of kilograms of copper tubing, bus bars, wires and cables along with copper and brass valves, pipes and electronic components to build power supplies, induction coils, water pumping systems and other equipment for our customers.
