Induction heating for the appliances industry

EFD Induction supplies induction equipment to the world's leading producers of refrigerators, freezers, dishwashers, washing machines and faucets. Our main area is brazing of compressor parts, but induction can also be used for the hardening of compressor parts and shrinking of parts used.


Brazing with induction heating

EFD Induction offers brazing in various important fields such as the automotive, aviation, electrotechnical and white goods industries. It includes brazing of aluminum, brass, copper, copper alloys, iron and cast iron, steel and stainless steel.


There are many reasons why using induction heating instead of gas for brazing is clearly beneficial. Induction transfers more energy per square meter than an open flame, resulting in faster heating cycles—put simply, you produce more components per hour.


The heat is also easy to check and adjust. You reduce the risk of overheating, which can lead to higher porosity and weaker joints. What's more, you reduce the risk of cold brazing as induction generates the heat in the base material.



Just as important, induction heating improves the working environment and safety. No gas needed, no open flame, no additional heating.

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.
