This is part 4 of my inductive heating series. In this video, I make a pancake coil for inductive heating the surface of parts that wouldn't make sense to build a regular coil for. It can also be used for cooking. Induction cooktops are more efficient than a gas or electric stove because there is less wasted heat.
Links to equipment shown in the video:
Meanwell RSP-1000-48 Power Supply
Litz Wire for Custom Induction Coils
Temperature Meter 2000F(1300C)
Power Meter 100V 50A
Cast Iron Mini Skillet
Aerosol Fire Extinguisher
Fiberglass Exhaust Wrap
Here's a patent about litz wire for induction heating and reasons why it's beneficial.
