ATOM-FI: Development of a metallic alloy atomizer for the intelligent factory

07/06/2016

The general objective of the project is to study and realize a new type of powder metal atomization machine with some innovative features. The machine is designed according to an innovative double chamber system. This system provides many advantages over the traditional gravity casting system: the melting chamber and the process chamber are completely independent and,...

Melting pure platinum

15/09/2015

In this video you can follow the melting and pouring of pure platinum using a Topcast TMF/R Melting Furnace. The process starts with the loading of platinum sheets into the crucible and the placement of a mold (in this case another crucible) . Then the platinum is heated and melt into the crucible by induction. Then the crucible is rotated by means of an handwheel:...

Melting a steel sample by means of a Topcast 12kW induction melter

14/05/2015

In this video you can follow the melting of a sample of steel scraps using a Topcast TMF12P Induction Melting Furnace. It is a very fast analysis method to evaluate the steel content in a lot of metal scraps, coming from a container, truck or ship. The resulting ingot can be analysed in an XRF fluorescence tester. The same furnace can melt...
