This invention broadly relates to the construction and use of a cylindrical heating element. In particular, this invention relates to the construction and use of a fine film multi-layer printed induction heating element in a cylindrical configuration to heat a nozzle of an injection molding system. The proposed heater is to be made by printing circular conductive patterns of the current carrying elements to produce inductive effect on the nozzle body. Eddy currents induced in the nozzle body will produce a heating effect as commonly known by Ohmic losses.
