Arc Melting

Arc melting is used to melt samples on a laboratory scale in a protective atmosphere. In addition, alloys with a high melting point can be produced. The rapid cooling rate enables the formation of metastable phases or the desired microstructure.

Technical specification

Temperatures up to 3500°C
Up to 20 g samples per batch
Conventional water cooled melting crucible and suction casting option
In cooperation with Fraunhofer IWKS arc melting up to 500 g possible
