With induction heat shrink fitting, a part is heated using electromagnetism induction, and no actual contact is made with a heat source. A part will expand during the heating process, and contract during the cooling process. In this way parts can be shrink fit.

Parts that are induction heat shrink fitted are used in virtually every industry including agricultural, automotive, aerospace, food and beverage, hydraulics, machine tool, medical, oil, railroad, and more.
