Induction Heating in Automotive & Transportation Industries

automotive induction heating

Induction heating has been widely used by the Automotive and Transportation industries for many decades. Its adaptability to high volume and fully automated production makes the induction heating equipment the preferred choice for a variety of manufacturing processes. Automotive manufacturers and their parts suppliers are using the induction heating for heat-treating, annealing of parts before bending or forming, automated heat staking or soldering, curing of adhesives, and bonding.

Ultraflex also provides induction melting and casting equipment, used by foundries for producing precision casted engine blocks and automotive parts.

The growing Electric car industry is using induction heating for many processes such as heat expansion for shrink fitting and mounting of electric motors and stators.

How Induction Heating is used in Automotive and Transportation?
