Fluxtrol Incorporated®, a merger of Fluxtrol Manufacturing, and Centre for Induction Technology can partner with you to attain optimal induction heating solutions using our proprietary magnetic materials, scientific knowledge, engineering experience, and innovative solutions.
Fluxtrol Manufacturing was founded in 1981 by Robert S. Ruffini, inventor, entrepreneur, and induction heating enthusiast who specialized in the development and manufacture of soft magnetic composites for magnetic flux control in induction systems.
In 1993, he founded Centre for Induction Technology (CIT) for the purpose of education and promotion of induction technologies. As a visionary he had invited Professor Dr. Valentin Nemkov, one of the world’s foremost experts in induction heating technique, to lead CIT’s technical efforts: to provide innovative and practical solutions for much needed productivity, to develop and enhance Fluxtrol‘s portfolio of products and educate user-professionals for the induction excellence for all concerned. Fluxtrol, Inc. and CIT have not only been advancing induction heating technologies for more than three decades, but also have become a world leader in the manufacture and supply of soft magnetic composites. Additionally, we provide a wide range of induction heating technology engineering services to a multitude of global industries.
We have a team of 20 induction heating experts including ten engineers with a wealth of real industry experience that service a global distribution network covering more than 50 countries. Our engineering team along with the combined efforts of our customer’s specialists has brought forth many innovative solutions being used in thousands of applications ranging from automotive to aerospace, oil and gas, special metallurgy, biomedical and food industry.
Research and Development
Research and development is one of the core competencies of Fluxtrol and Centre for Induction Technology. The three cornerstones of our R&D are:
- Fundamental understanding of induction technique
- Use of the magnetic flux controllers (made of soft magnetic composites)
- Computer modeling and process simulation
We are dedicated to promoting the art and science of induction technology. this mission of education and “Advancing Induction technology” comes in the form of personal training, conferences and seminars, as well as our special online Induction heating course.
Fluxtrol Inc. has a distributor network covering more than 20 countries and provides a wide range of magnetic materials and components, cooperative development and educational services worldwide.

We at Trueflaw have been using Fluxtrol's concentrators for many years. The high efficiency and control over the induction process that we get with these concentrators simply wouldn't be possible without them. Over the years, we've been very happy with the consistent high quality of Fluxtrol's products and can recommend them to anyone wishing to improve their induction heating process.
Fluxtrol's magnetic flux concentrators have exceeded our expectations in the manufacturing of suspension components. They not only helped us lower our induction heating costs, but also improved our part quality.
With the use of Fluxtrol's concentrators, we are able to process parts at a faster rate than using coils without their concentrators.
Fluxtrol and CIT made a lot for bringing the induction heating technology to new level of practical use and understanding of this complicated process. It is due to their research in theoretical aspects and use of different magnetic flux concentrator products.
Fluxtrol’s concentrators and design assistance helped Retech improve the performance of its cold crucible induction melting furnaces. The gains in efficiency have led to improved melting ability and product quality. This is very important for the advanced complex alloys being brought to market.
Fluxtrol was very good to deal with, both in providing initial design and manufacturing advice for getting the most out of their unique material, as well as help in the wider context of implementation, including cooling and power supply design. I’d certainly use them again in the future.
CIT is well known for contributions in the knowledge base and education via publications, conferences and lecturing. Prof. V. Nemkov is an active member of the Group “Education, Research & Dissemination of Knowledge” of the UIE.
