This chapter is devoted to a discussion of the use of induction heating (IH) for a large group of applications where metallic workpieces are heated before forging, forming, extrusion, bending, coating, drying, and the like. Typically, in such applications, it is required to through heat the entire cross section of the workpiece uniformly, that is why they are referred to as mass heating. However, in other cases, it is necessary to heat selected areas of the workpiece, developing desirable temperature gradients. Space does not permit discussing all possible mass heating applications. Therefore, this chapter focuses on the most typical ones.
