Within the automotive industry, induction heating has traditionally been used in the manufacture of large-scale parts for the main body, engine, electrical, steering, fuel and exhaust systems. With the broad operating frequency range of our Ambrell RF power supplies, we're able to heat parts of virtually any size. Larger parts such as camshaft gears can be heated at lower frequencies while smaller parts such as flexible electrical circuits are effectively heated at higher frequencies.

We offer exceptional customer service before and after the sale. Your automotive application will be analyzed and tested in the nearest Ambrell Applications Lab. There is no charge, and you will receive a system recommendation designed to deliver the best possible solution for your brazing requirements. Ambrell delivers the expertise, innovation and system quality to give your company a competitive edge.

Brazing, soldering, molding, adhesive curing, annealing, hardening, heat staking metal-to-plastic, shrink fitting, bonding and many other processes all benefit from the many advantages offered by modern solid-state induction heating systems.

Induction offers:

  • Selective Heating
  • Maximum Repeatability
  • Faster Cycle Time
  • Pin Point Accuracy
  • Flexible Set Up
  • Reduced Emissions
  • Increased Profitability
  • Improved User Interface
  • Reduced Scrap & Rework
