Nippon Steel Stainless Steel Corporation and Sojitz Group met with our induction team at Fives headquarters in Paris for a detailed design review of the transverse flux induction heating system.

CELES EcoTransFlux™ is an induction heating technology with very high heating rates at extremely high temperatures, and a compact footprint.

It also has a minimal environmental footprint, making it beneficial for steelmakers to improve their carbon, stainless or electrical steel production.

A transverse flux induction heater with very high heating rates at very high temperatures designed for the specific requirements of high-strength carbon, stainless or silicon steel grades. Because it replaces a gas-fired furnace, you can achieve a significant reduction in NOx and CO2 emissions.


High-flux induction heating solutions offer an alternative to conventional steel strip heating processes. CELES EcoTransFlux™, transverse flux induction heating technology is a proven alternative for very rapid heating at high temperatures:

  • Heating capability: up to 1,200°C
  • High heating rates: up to 400°C/sec
  • Heating of non-magnetic materials: stainless steel, Gen3 AHSS, etc.
  • Thermal efficiency above 75% regardless of strip format
  • Compact units for easier integration
  • Minimized environmental impact
