Based on the remarkable discoveries of the fathers of electromagnetism, Induction Heating and Melting became one of the most advanced methods of material production, modification and manufacturing. Industries that intensively use induction heating include steel, automotive, machinery, aerospace, electronics, crystal growth and some others. New applications are emerging in food and packaging industries, and even in medicine. But who invented induction heating and when did it happen? Various significant developments and methods that played a big role in induction technique are almost forgotten or at least not known to modern engineers. Knowledge of experience of the previous generations, especially of the works of the pioneers, can reveal many interesting ideas, which were abandoned at that time but could be practical today with more advanced materials, components and technologies. Knowledge of successes and failures of others will help to avoid mistakes and foresee future ways of induction technology expansion. The goal of this book is not to give an accurate chronological list of main events and achievements, but to show dynamics of technology and illustrate it with examples, multiple pictures and references. In July 2006 the world induction community lost one of its most distinguished members - Professor Alfred Muhlbauer--outstanding scientist, engineer, teacher and relentless promoter of Induction Technology. This book is his last imposing and great project, which was completed by his colleagues and friends.
