Induction forging of plowshares
When EFD Induction last May delivered a 250 kW inductionheating system to a customer in Denmark, nobody knew that company history was in the making.

“It was,” says EFD Induction area sales manager Thorleif Steinmoen,“only later that we realized this particular machine was the one hundredth induction machine we’d sold in Denmark.”
The machine—installed at the production plant of Mølbro A/S in Broby, west of Copenhagen—is
being used to forge plowshares. Adds Allan K. Rasmussen, EFD Induction sales representative in Denmark: “The whole process went very well. The system was up and running within one day.” Mølbro opted for our the EFD Induction solution only after making a detailed evaluation of all their options. Says Rasmussen: “They chose our machine because of its documented economic and technical benefits. Our after-sales service was another important factor behind their choice.”
One technical feature that impressed Mølbro was built-in automatic impedance matching. This ensures
exceptional heating times and power consumption levels. Feedback from Mølbro A/S shows that their new machine has slashed heating times by 25% compared to their previous forging equipment.
