Heating a conducting material by placing it in a rapidly changing magnetic field. The changing field induces electric currents in the material and I R losses account for the resultant heat.
Heating by combined electrical resistance and hysteresis losses induced by subjecting a metal to the varying magnetic field surrounding a coil carrying alternating current.
the heating of a conducting material caused by an electric current induced in it
Heating metals by means of an alternating magnetic field.
A process of heating by electrical induction.
The method of producing heat by subjecting a material to a variable electromagnetic field. Internal losses due to circulating eddy currents in the material cause it to heat up.
Is a method of providing fast, consistent heat for manufacturing applications which involve bonding or changing the properties of metals or other electrically-conductive materials. The process relies on induced electrical currents within the material to produce heat.
The heating of a electrically conductive material by an induction coil producing alternating magnetic fields which induce alternating electric currents to flow in the material and cause heating by resistance. Used in many heating process (induction fusing, induction plasma, induction hardening etc..) Induction hardening The localised surface heating of a medium carbon steel by an induction coil so that the temperature is raised above 900 o C. The part is quenched (or self-quenches by virtue of the remaining cool bulk of the component) and tempered to produce a hard martensitic structure at the surface.
Induction heating is the process of heating a metal object by electromagnetic induction, where eddy currents are generated within the metal and resistance leads to Joule heating of the metal. An induction heater (for any process) consists of an electromagnet, through which a high-frequency AC is passed. Heat may also be generated by magnetic hysteresis losses.
