Induction Innovations: Tools Designed to Solve Problems
Our induction heating tools are designed to solve problems such as removing stuck or corroded parts and adhesives in a faster, safer, and more precise way than using an open flame torch. Founder and President, Tom Gough, developed the first Inductor® Series model in 2000. He was inspired to invent these tools after dealing with 28 years in collision repair and seeing the many time-consuming processes found in the vehicle and equipment repair industry.
Precise. Safe. Reliable.
The most important reason to make the switch to induction heat over an oxy-acetylene torch is that it is safer and more reliable. Torches can produce inconsistent results and uneven heating. Flames cover a larger surface area which, can cause more damage and catch plastics, wiring, fuel, or trim on fire. Induction heat enhances workplace safety because of the precise, localized heat and no open flame. There is less potential to catch something on fire, damage the surrounding work areas or cause workplace injuries. When used properly by following the instruction manual, the results of induction heat are the same each time.
Our Tools Increase Your Profitability
Induction heating tools allow users to salvage parts, some that may otherwise be discarded. When using a torch, consumables such as gas expenses can add up. By switching to induction heat, those expenses can be greatly reduced or even eliminated. After purchasing the tool, additional costs may arise from purchasing new coils. Our coils are built to last around 200 uses and should be replaced when they start to look worn.
