Arcast Ind CC 20 Tilt and Pour

Our smallest tilt-casting furnace

The Arcast Inc Mini Induction Tilt-Casting Cold Crucible Melter offers the ability to melt, tilt-cast and rapidly solidify metal alloys of nominal 10 gram mass, using a clean, ceramic-free cold crucible process.

The process, also known as cold crucible levitation melting (CCLM) or cold crucible induction melting (CCIM), allows 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 atomosphere. It offers you the ability to melt and alloy metals at over 3000C, 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:
