Theoretical studies and the practical experience of the Fluxtrol team show how important it is to pay attention to magnetic flux control. The video above showing the robot arm that moves a hairpin coil, with and without concentrator, has become a classic demonstration of magnetic flux control.
Multiple studies have been performed since this demonstration at the ASM show in 1999 and a firm knowledge base has been created for optimal design of induction systems using magnetic controllers.
It includes characterization of soft magnetic composites, study of the influence of magnetic controllers in different induction systems, application methods and performance prediction using computer simulation.
Robotic scan heating by hairpin coil and temperature prediction in the part and the coil with concentrator (temperature scales are individual).
