The coil shop at EFD Induction Sweden plays an important part of our worldwide network of induction coil services, making sure that our customers have access to perfectly working coils suited to their particular heating needs.
AT WORK: Coppersmith Ehsan Miran Hussein milling pieces of field concentrators.
The details of every single EFD Induction coil are entered into a constantly updated database containing all essential information. This makes it quick and easy for us to repair or replace your coils, anywhere — without compromising on quality or productivity.
For fifteen years EFD Induction Sweden has delivered high-quality induction coils to customers all around the globe.
“Yes, our coils find their way to users in the far corners of the world,” says Workshop Manager Maria Norberg, an EFD Induction veteran of twenty years. “We have major customers in USA, Mexico and Russia of course, but also in places like Angola, where our coils were used in the construction of the Cambambe dam.”
TEAM WORK: Being able to discuss with your skilled colleagues is important when designing a new coil.
Correct coil design is essential to cost-effective induction heating. To ensure you get the right heating patterns and your induction heating power supply delivers maximum output, coils are tailored to your specific applications and materials. Designing and making such customized induction coils are technically challenging tasks, requiring special skills and experience. In the workshop in Västerås, Sweden, they have both.
“Over the years we have made thousands of induction coils, most of them unique for a specific customer or application,” says Maria. “Our three coppersmiths Ehsan, Inger and Tomas are all experts in their field. They manufacture induction coils in almost all shapes and sizes, all according to our customers’ needs and demands.”
TESTING: When devising an induction heating solution, testing the coil critical to ensure it will work as expected. Coppersmith Inger Henriksson is performing meticolous tests to see that it works to perfection.
For the past ten years Maria Norberg has been responsible for monitoring the production – planning, communicating with colleagues and customers, and making sure everything gets done on time. Efficiency is fundamental to the way they work.
“We design new induction coils right here. The drawings are made in-house. That way, it moves very fast from sketch to finished product – all in one place,” she explains.
IN PRODUCTION: Coppersmith Tomas Eriksson is applying aluminium oxide coating to a coil before varnish.
Maria recently took over as Workshop Manager and is very ambitious in her new role.
“I aim to take our business to new heights,” she smiles. “We want to develop even further, reach even higher and get even better at what we do for our customers.”
