About Inductor Lite
The Inductor Lite is a compact, 2400W addition to the Inductor Series with a digital interface for manual heat control.
Using high frequency magnetic fields, the Inductor Lite utilizes Invisible Heat® to easily remove parts bonded to metal, including adhesives, logos, side moldings, direct glazed windows, stone guard protection, sealers, mechanical parts, and dents. In seconds, users are be able to release seized hardware from corrosion or threadlock compounds and other adhesives without the collateral damage and safety risks of an open flame.
Benefits of Use
- Reduce labor by as much as 75%
- Save, re-use and salvage parts usually discarded
- Save on the need for toxic solvents
- Reduce the need for expensive consumables
- Invisible Heat is safer than a torch
- 85V to 265V power supply offers flexible voltage
- Auto and manual heating modes
According to Tom Gough, President of Induction Innovations, “Some mechanics, body shops and other users have been asking us for a better way to control the induction heating temperature of our Inductor Series. The Inductor Lite gives users more control with both auto and manual modes. Auto is recommended at first as it keeps the Inductor Lite in a safe range but, if that’s not enough power or is too much, you can increase or decrease the unit’s percentage of power as needed.”
Features & Attachments
- Auto Mode: Inductor Lite only starts if the metal is ferrous (not suitable for aluminum or copper) and then automatically adjusts heating to avoid damaging auto parts due to overheating
- Manual Mode: Auto Mode can be bypassed when a higher or lower percentage of power is needed (from 0 to 100% with foot pedal control)
- Lite Fast-Off® Attachment: quickly and easily removes all adhesives and strips as well as side moldings in a few minutes without any damage
- Lite Glass Blaster® Attachment: peels off welded metal sheets and burns off stone guard protection with the heated scraper; it’s also suitable to remove glass (windshield, rear window, rear quarter light, sunroof, etc.)
- Lite Concentrator® Attachment: warms and releases all types of mechanical parts in a few seconds such as bolts, screws, shock absorbers, track rod ends, etc.
- Plastic Wedge Attachment: as a supplement to the other Inductor Lite accessories, the scrapers are essential to remove logos/badges and stone chip protection, etc.
- Cart & Cable Support: a metal trolley with a cable hanger on the side to manage all cords and accessories is optional for the Inductor Lite
- Lite PDR Baton Attachment: optional paintless dent removal attachment that is ideal for removing hail dents, door dings and other soft dents
