VACUUM INDUCTION MELTING FURNACE
Flyvacuum offers custom designs for Vacuum Induction melting furnaces tailored to meet customers demanding requirements.
Vacuum Induction Melting (VIM) is used for melting of metal via electromagnetic induction under vacuum. An induction furnace containing a refractory lined crucible surrounded by an induction coil located inside a vacuum chamber. Material is charged into the induction furnace under vacuum and power is applied to melt the charge. Additional charges are made to bring the liquid metal volume to the desired melt capacity.
When the desired melt chemistry is achieved, the crucible is tilted and the molten metal is poured into the molds. VIM is a process used to make superalloys, stainless steels, magnetic and battery alloys, electronic alloys, and other demanding high value alloys.
