Induction Innovations, is a family- owned and operated manufacturer of high performance induction heaters for the automotive aftermarket repair and restoration industries. The company’s headquarters and all manufacturing are nestled in Elgin, Illinois, just west of Chicago.
Induction Innovations’ induction heating tools were designed to solve problems such as removing stuck or corroded parts and adhesives in a faster, safer, and more precise way. Founder and President, Tom Gough, developed the first Inductor Series model in 2000 after dealing with 28 years in collision repair and experiencing firsthand the many time-consuming processes found in the vehicle and equipment repair industry.
Using an open flamed torch to remove parts can be dangerous – open flames are unreliable, can be time consuming to work with and can cause damage to the area surrounding the part, all of which affect the productivity of your business, your profits, and the safety of employees.
Induction Innovations’ induction heating tools can save you time and money by offering a combination of speed, consistency, and control by using invisible, flameless heat. The heat is transferred to the product via electromagnetic waves and the heated part never encounters any flame. The coil itself does not get hot, either.
The coil serves as a transformer primary and the part being heating becomes a short circuit secondary. When a ferrous metal object is placed within the induction coil, it enters the magnetic field and circulating eddy currents are induced within the part. These eddy currents flow against the electrical resistivity of the metal, which generates heat. This precise, localized heat is generated without any direct contact between the part and the coil.
Induction Innovations’ product lines run a wide range of power and portability, starting with the Mini-Ductor® product line. The Mini- Ductor series is the professional’s choice handheld flameless torch and the original handheld induction heater. The Mini-Ductor is the flameless solution to releasing seized or frozen hardware from corrosion and thread lock compounds. This line of handheld induction heaters are made to reach those tight-fitting areas where a flame cannot go. The next step up in power is the company’s Inductor® Series line, which features more than 2000 watts of power. The Inductor line releases adhesives holding parts bonded to vehicles or equipment such as auto glass and windshields, decals, vinyl graphics, bonded trim, spray-on bedliners and more.
The company’s newest induction heating system is the heavy-duty ALFe® series, ideal for those that require high end heat levels to release seized parts and panel bond adhesives from steel or aluminum. Induction Innovations currently offer the ALFe 3.5 and 5.0, which contain 3500 and 5000 watts of power.
