Induction Heating Iron Bar Application

Induction heating iron bar is an energy-saving and efficient method of preheating before forging. According to the forging requirements of iron rods, our engineers heat iron rods with a diameter of 25 mm and a length of 150 mm in the FOCO induction laboratory. The iron rod was heated to about 900 °C in 5 seconds based on the experimental results.

The medium frequency induction heating machine has a large heating depth and is often used to heat iron bars, steel bars, billets, etc. For the heating and preheating of bars before forging, we have designed a dedicated induction heating system.

Heating process:

  1. Insert the iron bars into the induction coil in sequence.
  2. The iron bars are each heated to 900 °C for 5 seconds.
  3. The iron bars are removed from the induction coil.


Induction heating is a fast and safe method of heating iron rods. Compared with flame heating or resistance furnace heating, it is more energy efficient and safer to perform. It can also be pre-programmed to integrate induction heating machines into your production line for automated production. By setting the heating time and temperature, induction heating can guarantee consistent results.
