EFD Induction designs, builds, installs and maintains a complete range of induction heating equipment. With more than 20,000 installations in 80 countries for a wide range of industrial applications, EFD solutions bring the benefits of induction technology to many of the world’s leading manufacturing and service companies.

EFD Induction has been developing induction heating solutions for almost 70 years. Today, the company is one of the world’s largest industrial induction equipment makers, with sales and service companies, manufacturing plants, workshops and product development centres in the Americas, Europe and Asia.

EFD Induction improves heat processes by making them cost-effective, safe and robust, and by minimizing their energy consumption. Best-in-class solutions are optimized to customers’ needs.

Induction heating solutions can be profitably used in virtually any industrial application that requires heat. EFD Induction hardening machines, for example, are widely used in the automotive industries. EFD Induction equipment is also commonly found in the metal and foundry, tube and pipe, wire and cable, aviation, shipbuilding, HVAC, oil and gas, power generation, appliances, and electrotechnical industries.

The key benefits of induction heating are improved throughput, better and consistent quality, and reduced costs. Induction heating is incredibly quick. It takes less than one second to achieve a uniform surface temperature of 1,000°C on small metal components. It is accurate, repeatable, safe and controllable, and it requires a minimum of energy.

EFD Induction has unrivalled knowledge of applications as diverse as annealing, bonding, brazing, curing, forging, shrink-fitting, hardening, straightening, tempering, welding, melting, plasma, optical fibre and glass. To ensure our metallurgists and engineers are top experts, the company has built its own research labs.

Equipment from EFD Induction is supported by a global network of factories, workshops and offices. In addition to manufacturing facilities in Germany, Norway, France, China, India, Poland, Romania and the USA, EFD Induction also has sales and service companies in Austria, Brazil, Denmark, Finland, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Russia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Thailand and the United Kingdom.
