CENOS Induction Heating is a finite element method (FEM) based computer-aided engineering (CAE) software designed for simulation of low- and medium frequency induction heating processes. CENOS Induction Heating couples electromagnetic and thermal calculation algorithms to cover the full spectrum of induction heating related problems.
CENOS Induction Heating allows 2D, axial symmetric, and 3D models for induction heating, pre-heating, hardening, brazing, annealing, tempering, and other processes for heating of various materials, such as steel, aluminium, copper, titanium, different alloys, and other electrically conductive materials.
CENOS Induction Heating application can also simulate solely electromagnetic (steady-state, harmonic, or transient), solely thermal (steady-state or transient), and resistive heating tasks.
CENOS Induction Heating its value for induction coil design, heating recipe optimization, energy efficiency, and coil lifetime improvements.
