Induction heating is extensively used for brazing and heat treatment of materials to produce consumer and industrial products; structural assemblies; electrical and electronic products; mining, machine, and hand tools; ordnance equipment; and aerospace assemblies. It is often applied when rapid and localised heating is required in order to avoid distortions and to combine complex metal combinations and geometries. The process time is usually in the range of seconds. It is therefore very advantageous when large numbers of parts are handled automatically.
