From our vacuum arc melting furnaces we can melt and alloy to create buttons for pressing or rolling. We can cast alloy into rapidly quenched rod, shard or thin sections, or atomize into powder.
Induction processes include cold crucible skull melting, induction levitation melting, or melting in ceramic or graphite furnaces. All of these processes can be done in a vacuum or in inert or reactive gas atmospheres.
Arcast Inc has the ability to handle and process just about any metallic material. Our equipment is well suited to process:
Our equipment can be used for refining, alloying, casting and gas atomizing the above materials and most other metals.
We produce equipment and offer a toll in-house processing service. We have a range of arc melters and induction furnaces for our own development and for developing customers’ materials. We can process materials from elemental feed stock or from master alloys.
We can continuously cast ingots from elemental feed stock using cold molds. These can be done in a variety of configurations and sizes.
We have in-house capability for powder production. Methods include general ceramic based gas atomization and clean cold crucible (ceramic free) based gas atomization. Contact us for more details.
