Induction heating for the aviation industry

Induction heating for the aviation industry

Product quality and process consistency are obviously crucial to the aviation industry. That's why the accurate, repeatable and contact-free heat of induction heating has become so popular with aircraft manufacturers, airlines and their suppliers.


Our compact multipurpose Minac converters, for instance, are particularly sought after by maintenance divisions because of their flexibility and ease of mobility.


Here are some typical uses of our equipment within the aviation industry:

Induction brazing

Induction brazing in the aviation industry

Within the aviation industry demands on temperature levels and heat supply are complex and precise. That’s why induction brazing is ideal —the heat is accurate, controllable and repeatable. 


Here are some typical uses of our equipment within the aviation industry:

  • Induction brazing of fan blades and blades for casings
  • Induction brazing of various parts for fuel systems, e.g. fuel connections
  • Induction brazing of various components in hydraulic systems

Induction postheating in the aviation industry

Induction postheating is particularly suitable for reducing stresses caused by welding repairs in. for instance, for jet engine casings. This is not only because induction heating is accurate, repeatable and contact-free heat, but also because it meets all the rules for heat treatment in the aviation industry.


EFD Induction offers mobile, compact induction heating equipment. Welding joints can therefore be postheated on planes anywhere in the world—just take the equipment with you.

Sinac - Universal heat generators


Universal heat generators


Choosing Sinac gives you more than the market's most advanced, most reliable induction heating systems. You also get easy access to EFD Induction’s global service, training and spare parts network. This network—which is made up of manufacturing plants, service centers and local representatives—means you are never far from qualified help and support.  


Opting for Sinac also ensures you get the best possible solution tailored to your specific needs and conditions. Prior to designing your system, our engineers, metallurgists and material experts assess your requirements. Testing and computer simulation at our labs guarantee you receive equipment which is optimized to your applications and which can be painlessly integrated into existing production lines and processes.

Mobile heat generators

Minac - Mobile heat generators


The Minac range of complete mobile induction systems is even easier to use than its acclaimed predecessor.


A ready-to-use system, all that has to be done upon delivery is: 1) attach a coil, 2) connect supply voltage, 3) connect cooling water. In models with closed cooling systems, only the supply voltage needs connecting.


Once installed, the Minac's clear, menu-based and multi-language control panel ensures maximum ease-of-use. Moreover, this simplified control/user interface is common to all Minac equipment.


Many Minac models come in "Twin" versions offering two independent power outputs. The Twin versions feature split control panel displays—one for each power output.


The Minac is simple to operate. Handheld transformers (HHT) feature on/off and precise power controls. In fact, the HHT is as easy to operate as a regular electric drill. Flexible, water-cooled cables connecting the HHT to the converter allow easy access to workpieces.

Induction coils

Having the right coil—and keeping it in the best possible condition—is critical to the efficiency of your induction solution. After all, the coil is the component that actually delivers the heat to the workpiece.


Our induction coil services cover all your coil needs: from coil design through to coil manufacture, installation, maintenance, repair and replacement.


Coil design

Correct coil design is essential to cost-effective induction heating. This service ensures you get design customized to your heating applications and materials. Which, in turn, means that you get the right heating patterns and your induction heating power supply delivers maximum output. You can use the service when introduction induction heating for the first time, or when upgrading existing coils. 


Coil database

Each EFD Induction coil is documented in a database containing all essential information. This makes it quick and easy for us to repair and replace your coils with constant quality. You can use the service when introducing induction heating for the first time, or when upgrading existing coils.
