The book presents the current state-of-the-art of inductive melting
technology as it is deployed in manufacturing and processing metal.
Nowaday the energy efficiency of process heating plants is the new
challenge for industrial furnaces. The work focuses mainly on the
metallurgical processes involved in melting, holding and pouring using
induction systems. The fundamentals of inductive powe transmission and
the design of induction plants are described to the extent necessary to
understand the production process. Color images illustrate the

The book provides support not only for the specialists, but also for
students in reseach, development and practical applications.
