  Heatline Induction Melting and Forging Equipment

Melting with induction heating

Induction heating is a smart and proven way of melting metal and glass. EFD Induction has developed solutions within a variety of areas such as precious metals, tilting furnace melting, investment casting and lab applications.  


With an induction furnace the process is considerably cleaner than with a traditional furnace. This means you don't need to purify after the melting, which makes it possible to cut one step in the production process. Lower maintenance costs and machine inventory are some of the benefits.   


Induction is also safer and more cost-effective. No flame that leads to substantial heat losses or increases the risk of work injuries and fires. In addition, induction heat is accurate and repeatable—important to secure the quality in your melting processes.

Metal melting - The benefits of induction heating





Forging with induction heating


EFD Induction forging solutions have been installed in dozens of countries, mainly in the metal and foundry sector. Examples of materials you can process with forging induction are aluminum, brass, copper, steel and stainless steel.


With induction you get perfect heating control—time after time. All components are subject to the same temperature, so there's no risk of the wrong temperature producing the wrong shape or damaging the tools in the next production step.


Induction also produces less oxidation—important for the metallurgical composition of the metals and protection of tools.

Induction heating for the metal and foundry industry

Our very first equipment items were designed and built for the Metal and Foundry—and over the past five decades we have led the way in developing time- and money-saving solutions for the sector.


Our solutions for Metal and Foundry are mainly to be found in the following areas:

  • Forging of billet heaters and horizontal/vertical bar end heaters
  • Melting of metal and glass
  • Plasma heating of titanium and silicon
HeatLine is EFD Induction’s family of systems for melting and forging applications.
EFD Induction billet heaters heat practically any dimension of billets and slugs in materials as diverse as stainless steel, copper, aluminum, titanium and brass.
Automated, high-output solutions for bar end and partial heating.
EFD Induction's melting furnaces are proven solutions for labs and small to mid-size foundries.
