Electromagnetic Processing of Materials (EPM) relates to all branches of materials processing where some benefit could be obtained from an electromagnetic influence on the process. Some of the most common EPM technologies are resistance, infrared, induction, dielectric heating, electric arc and electron-beam heating These techniques offer a range of productivity, environmental and economic benefits. UIE has teamed up with Leonardo ENERGY to set up the EPM Academy, an initiative to introduce the benefits of these technologies to industrial users. UIE has almost 80 years of experience in this field, and is supported by an network of institutes covering this broad field of technologies. The EPM Academy is active through a series of monthly briefing webinars that are free of charge to participants. After the live webinars, the events are archived and remain available 24/7 to interested users.
