Further development and quality requirements imposed on production processes lead to determining new research to find optimal process parameters and configurations of the electromagnetic induction heating system. This work analyzes the process of mass heating for lengthy pieces by numerical modeling to obtain a uniform temperature by using multiple heating stages with different geometrical and electrical parameters. An important aspect treated in this paper is inductive heating stages alternating with phases of uniform temperature without heat. To achieve the intended purpose we used a commercial software for numerical modeling that has simulation facilities for the induction heating process in several stages. The results obtained by numerical modeling allow us to analyze several cases of induction heating, in a short time and to choose the best solution that provides a uniform heating of the work piece with low cost of material for devices and minimum power consumption.
