Induction Furnace Designed with RF Cafe Formulas

John C. Nordt Induction Furnace Design with Help of RF Cafe Formulas - RF CafeEngineering Technician Tom D. from the John C. Nordt company sent me an e-mail saying that he used some of the formulas he found here on RF Cafe to help him design inductors for a custom induction heating vacuum furnace used for melting precious metals used in their manufacturing processes. He needed to either replace existing equipment with very expensive commercial equipment or build one of his own design. It was a first-pass success. Of course the real credit goes to Tom for having the skill and inventiveness for tackling such a challenge. The company was founded in 1872 by a German immigrant after whom it is named. John C. Nordt still operates today as a family business with a highly skilled engineering and production crew. The video I have linked is a worthwhile watch if you appreciate metals forging, casting, milling, and finishing, as well as a bit of American history. The vault used to store gold, silver, and other highly valuable metals is impressive. I wonder if the employees have to pass through a metal detector going in and out of the production area? A mere chip of lathe scrap could fund a large pizza and 2-liter soda.
