The heat generated by the coil is one of the major design aspects of a DC linear actuator. In addition to significantly shortening the life expectancy of its mechanical components, the temperature changes can affect the actuator’s efficiency and repeatability.

Crosslinked Polyethylene (XLPE) is extensively used as an electrical insulating material in Power cables for underground distribution and subsea transmission. It is gradually replacing the typical low-density Polyethylene in such applications, because of its excellent insulation characteristics (high dielectric strength, low dielectric permittivity and loss factor) and its great mechanical and thermal stabilities. XLPE come to be used on a large-scale voltage transmission for more than 200kV.

Induction heating process is widely used in a various industrial applications such as welding, forming, brazing, hardening and other non-contact heat treatment processes.
