What is Induction Melting?
Induction melting is the process of heating metal using an induction melting furnace to bring the temperature to its melting point and finally melting the metal. An induction melting furnace usually includes an induction heating power supply and crucible. Induction heating power supplies provide heating energy. Metal is then placed inside the crucible. Metals that can be melted include ferrous metals (iron, steel) and non-ferrous metals (copper, aluminum, gold, silver, lead, tin, etc.).
The Benefits of Induction Melting
- Fast melting speed and high production efficiency.
- Uniform heating temperature and the induction melting furnace have the effect of electromagnetic stirring.
- Energy saving potential.
- Safe working environment.
Due to the many benefits of induction melting, FOCO induction melting furnace systems are widely used in foundries, small industrial workshops, laboratories, etc.
