What is induction forging?

Induction forging uses induction to heat metal parts before they are shaped or ‘deformed’ by presses or hammers.


What are the benefits?

Induction forging has several key advantages over furnace forging. The speed and controllability of induction ensures high throughput. Induction minimizes oxidation and helps maintain metallurgical integrity. Since induction delivers precise, localized heat, it also saves energy. The consistency and repeatability of induction make it ideal for integrating into automated production lines.


Where is it used?

Induction forging is widely used in the metal and foundry industries to heat billets, bars and bar ends. Metals commonly forged with EFD Induction systems include aluminum, brass, copper, steel and stainless steel.
