Precise control of the entire alloy chemistry process

Our Vacuum Induction Melting (VIM) furnaces can process a wide range of materials.

Our furnace equipment has proven to consistently deliver value and competitive advantage for products for the automotive and consumer industries as well as critical, high-value equiax, directionally solidified or single-crystal aerospace parts.


  • Combination DS/SC/Equiax equipment offers industry’s fastest process conversion
  • Multi-zone mould heaters
  • One or two axis precision pouring (auto teach, profile and constant volume)
  • Precision temperature measurement (OPTO-TC)
  • Closed-loop solidification control
  • Door-mounted furnace melt box assemblies
  • Horizontal bar feeder assembly includes X-Y motion control, for simultaneous loading of bars and liners or alternate bar loading via rotation
  • Vertical bar feeder designs are available for larger installations
  • Unmanned startup and/or shutdown of vacuum equipment (Sentry package)
  • Video systems provide improved process monitoring and control
