Induction welding is a form of welding that uses electromagnetic induction to heat the workpiece.
The welding apparatus contains an induction coil that is energised with a radio-frequency electric current . This generates a high-frequency electromagnetic field that acts on either an electrically conductive or a ferromagnetic workpiece. In an electrically conductive workpiece, the main heating effect is resistive heating, which is due to induced currents called eddy currents. In a ferromagnetic workpiece, the heating is caused mainly by hysteresis, as the electromagnetic field repeatedly distorts the magnetic domains of the ferromagnetic material. RVmagnetics MicroWire sensor is essentially a metallic alloy with glass coating. To melt the alloy we also use an induction method of melting it.
