Induction melting furnace

At the IMM, a vacuum induction furnace for melting novel alloys is operated. We have a vast wealth of experience with alloy systems based on aluminum, copper, magnesium, nickel, iron, various intermetallic phases and super alloys. On condition that all raw materials are pure enough, the alloys can reach a purity up to 6N. The common quantity of melt amounts to 4 kg (heavy metal) resp. 1 kg (light metal). The installation has a closed vacuum chamber and can be run under various inert atmospheres or high vacuum.

  • Production of alloys
  • Manipulation of the melt
  • Temperature measurement in the melt and data recording
  • Wide range of crucible materials and agents
Technical data:
  • Inductive Power 50 kw at 10 kHz
  • Maximal temperature 1800 °C
  • Vacuum to 5 x 10-5 hPa or inert atmosphere
