Induction meltings

In order to obtain the material properties required for your particular application, the industrial phase involves a rigorous (air or vacuum) melting process followed by remelting of special steels, alloys or superalloys. Our extensive catalogue comprises some 350 grades.

Air melting

metal melting furnace

Air melting of metal is carried out in an electric arc furnace. Solidification is obtained through ingot melting.

Air melting

Vacuum melting

steel melting furnaces

Used for alloys which are subject to higher levels of stress, melting performed in a vacuum induction melting furnace (VIM) makes it possible to not only improve the mechanical properties but also to assess the metal’s capability under hot deformation.

Vacuum melting

Remelting

vacuum arc melting

Using vacuum or slag, the remelting phase makes it possible to produce high quality ingots whilst controlling solidification and further improving the metal cleanliness. Remelting is used for certain critical parts with a view to improving their properties and reliability.
