Induction is an efficient method for targeted heating. Components can be heated both completely and partially. Induction heating can be used for welding, straightening, preheating or for heat treatment.
We have developed a modeling method to image inductive heating to a 3D model. We use the boundary element method, which means we can do without meshing the air. That makes the application effective.
With the help of induction simulation, the process (position of the inductor, duration and frequency of the induction current) can be designed and the optimal shape of the inductor can be determined.
You can find a small application example in our video DynaWeld Induction:
