We offer induction heating services, which includes free testing to verify that you get the best possible solutions for your project. This can include brazing, hardening, annealing, preheating, and shrinking depending on your needs.

At FOCO, we pride ourselves on offering world-class customer service and ensuring that every customer walks away happy. We understand that every business has different needs, so tell us how we can help!

Heat Testing Process

We perform induction heating tests on your parts (workpieces) using different heat levels to see what works best for your product. Then, we’ll provide you with a plan based on these results so that you can make an informed decision about whether or not induction heating is suitable for your application.

An example would be a project where we heated small pieces of gold and platinum. The aim is to achieve and sustain temperatures up to 1,600degC in 30+ minutes. Once the samples were heated to the melting temperature, they were ready for analysis of the isotopes in a spectrometer.
For customizable designs, especially those involving non-standard workpieces, we’ll let you your manufacturing options through testing alone!

Induction heat testing is the best way to find out which induction heating process and equipment works best for your application. We offer a wide range of tests in our induction heating laboratory so that you can get all the information that you need about how different pieces react when heated by induction.

We can test a variety of different applications including but not limited to:

  • Induction Hardening
  • Induction Melting
  • Induction Brazing
  • Induction Forging
  • Induction Preheating
  • Induction Annealing
  • Shrink Fitting

Make an appointment with us

All you have to do is let us know what kind of workpiece you would like to have tested and what heating application(s) it will be used for and then send it over to our lab (we will send you all the details via email). Once we receive your piece(s) we will set up an appointment with one of our expert engineers who will be able to provide recommendations based on your needs!

As the one-source provider for complete induction heating systems, FOCO provides unique testing capabilities for our customers. We strive to provide the utmost quality as a trusted heat testing vendor to ensure that our customer’s parts conform to the exact specifications. Our Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) procedures enable us to identify the slightest errors, ensure that your parts uphold quality standards, provide safe products for customers, and avoid expensive warranty issues. In addition, we have the capability and flexibility to test low-volume and high-volume parts and a wealth of experience examining various heat-treated and green components.

Although the basic principles are well known, advances in coils make induction heat a straightforward, inexpensive method of heating testing. Induction heating offers numerous benefits for manufacturing processes as it is a fast, energy-efficient, and flameless way of heating electrically conductive materials. In addition, induction heating provides reliable, repeatable, accurate, contactless, energy-efficient heating for a minimal time and is generally an excellent choice for materials testing.

By highly controlled use of electrically heated coils, induction heating allows you to test optimal physical characteristics for not just every part — but every part within that part. With FOCO, you can heat-test metal components without many problems usually associated with other heat testing processes.
