Learn about the many benefits of induction heating for medical device manufacturing processes.

Medical device manufacturers commonly turn to induction heating for their processes. Induction offers a fast, non-contact heating method for numerous applications including annealing steel tubes, catheter tipping, brazing miniature parts, soldering surgical tools, curing power coating, hardening surgical instruments, heating catheter tipping dies and more.

Additional induction heating advantages include:

-Improved productivity thanks to its speed

-Improved energy efficiency compared to a torch or oven

-Reduced defect rates due to induction's repeatability

-Does not contaminate the area being heated

-Extends fixture life since it heats only the targeted portion of the part

-Integrates well into production cells thanks to small workheads

We've created a brochure that includes ten application notes. These applications came from customers over the years and were tested by THE LAB at Ambrell. THE LAB offers complimentary applications testing, so feel free to request testing for your heating application. And, be sure to request our new medical device manufacturing brochure today.
