Arcast Ind 500 induction melting furnace

Versatility in a small package

The Arcast Mini Induction Melter offers the ability to melt, cast and rapidly solidify metal alloys of nominal 500 gram mass, using an induction ceramic or graphite crucible.

It offers the ability to melt and alloy metals at up to 1700C. The furnace is enclosed in a stainless steel vacuum chamber and offers many standard options.

The standard options include:

  • Melting and alloying cold furnace
  • Tilt-casting with mold options
  • Vacuum casting with mold options
  • Centrifugal casting with mold options
  • Free fall gas atomizer (for powder metallurgy)

There are also two vacuum options: medium (1E-2 mbar) and high (5E-6 mbar). All options are designed for quick cycle times and user friendly operation.

The intended use for the Induction Melter is to enable metallurgists and technicians to alloy nonreactive metals and cast them with the least running and capital costs, while maintaining a high engineering standard.
