You may have heard of cutting edge induction food cooking, where electromagnetic coils under the glass cooktop surface transfer energy into metal objects that produce heat. The cooking vessel is heated while the cooktop itself stays cool. Ambrell Corporation specialize in making the industrial version of such induction heating appliances, capable of heating a solid steel bar from room temperature to 2220°F (1204°C) in just 20 seconds! Come join us to learn about Ambrell’s fascinating induction heating technology and tour their new 80,000 square foot $2.1 million facility. We’ll also provide discussion about various programs available offering grants and funding to facilitate local business growth opportunities.
