In practical terms, electromagnetic induction involves putting a part (usually made of electrical conductive material) inside a magnetic field, which is kept variable with an "inductor coil" (inductance), which itself is connected to a power source and a capacitor bank, and the assembly forms an oscillating circuit at a so-called "resonance" frequency.
The high-power densities of induction heating provide several benefits over other heating techniques. This makes induction the overwhelmingly preferred solution in an increasing number of industries, including in the most high-end and cutting-edge sectors.
