  • Energy Saving
  • High-efficiency, high-speed, high-accuracy heating of non-magnetic materials
  • IH coil design utilizing electromagnetic field and thermo-fluid analysis
  • Reducuction of environmental impact with adoption of IH

induction heating (IH) has been developed and deployed for internal manufacturing equipment such as heat treatment and bonding. IH technology has been established using electromagnetic field and thermo-fluid simulation to heat non-magnetic materials such as copper and aluminum with high efficiency, at high speed, and with high accuracy.

This technology allows us to reduce CO2 emissions by 50%, achieve a 60% reduction in size, and save 54% more energy than either of the previous gas burner heating or electric furnace methods. Furthermore, product quality and productivity have been improved through this superior temperature control.
