For years, EFD Induction has been a trusted supplier of induction heating solutions to numerous automakers around the world. We also work with many tier-one suppliers and sub-contractors.
Induction heating is used within a variety of fields in the automotive industry. For example:
engine parts such as valves, crankshafts, camshafts, connection rods and starter rings
transmission parts, for example CV joints, tulips and axle shafts
suspension parts such as shock absorber rods, springs and suspension arms
parts for automatic and manual gear gearboxes, for example rings, selector shafts and sun gears
clutch springs and brake pads
camshafts, crankshafts, drive shafts, torsion bars, couplings, rocker arms, rock drills, chains, suspension arms, clutches, brake discs, steering wheels, CV joints, tulips, shock absorbers, inner and outer races, control rods, valves and output shafts.
aluminum parts for air-conditioning systems, for example evaporator and condenser connections (tube-to-tube, tube-to-block, tube-to-tank)
steel and copper components, e.g., brake linings, fuel injection pipes
short-circuit rings for electric motors
magnets in electric motors
doors, hoods and trunks
fenders and rear-view mirrors
transmission parts, for example shrink fitting of gear wheels
engine parts and brake discs (polymerization)
truck making and repair
Induction hardening. What makes it so effective?
Learn about the potential and benefits of induction hardening.
Brazing aluminium is a demanding task. The reason is the need for exact temperatures. EFD Induction has unrivalled expertise in this application and is the world's leading developer of induction heating solutions for aluminium brazing.
EFD Induction is the world’s largest induction hardening equipment maker with close to 70 years experience.
EFD Induction’s patented simultaneous multi-frequency hardening. The process achieves true contour hardening of small gears in well under a second.

A HardLine Centerless Pusher induction hardens steel bars.
High throughput and consistent heating outcomes are essential when heat treating bars and shafts.
We design, make and maintain customized induction coils for camshaft hardening. These formed coils deliver precise heat patterns and penetration depths for perfect hardening results.
There are many reasons why induction heating is the preferred method for hardening camshafts.
Our induction camshaft hardening solutions are used by many of the leading names in the truck, bus, excavator and earth-moving equipment industries. Our systems are also widely used to harden marine camshafts.
Car crankshafts, truck crankshafts, marine crankshafts — EFD Induction systems are used worldwide to harden every imaginable type of crankshaft in a wide range of production volumes.
