Electric resistance of metals increases according to the elevation in temperature. Non-uniform temperature distribution in cross-section can be automatically sacrificed if we use electric resistance heating, and uniformly distributed cross-sectional temperature can be easily obtained. A continuous heating system using electronic resistance heating is developed, and its characteristics to the heating of stainless steel are examined through a series of basic experiments. Through the investigation, it has become clear that uniform continuous heating of stainless steel can be realized by proposed heating system. Although the composition of heating system is quite simple, high rate in temperature elevation can be obtained. Also, we can precisely control the temperature distribution in feeding (rolling) direction by continuous electric resistance heating, because temperature of metals can be rapidly changed only by changing the degree of electric current and time to impose electric current.
