The Arcast Inc Induction Cold Crucible Melter offers the ability to melt, cast and rapidly solidify metal alloys of nominal 100 gram mass, using a clean ceramic free cold crucible process. The process, also known as CCLM (cold crucible levitation melting) or CCIM (cold crucible induction melting), inables a reactive alloy to be fully melted and alloyed in one melt cycle. It also allows this to be done in a vacuum or a flowing atmosphere. It offers you the ability to melt and alloy metals at over 3000 Deg. C, such as titanium alloys, memory alloys and bulk amorphous glass alloys. The furnace is enclosed in a vacuum chamber and offers many standard options.
The standard options include:
There are also two vacuum options: medium (1E-2 mbar) and high (5E-6 mbar). All options are design for quick cycle times and user friendly operation. The intended use for the Induction Cold Crucible Melter is to allow metallurgists and technicians to alloy reactive or nonreactive metals, and cast these alloys with the least running and capital costs, while maintaining a high engineering standard.
