Please email for lead time

Product Options

Continuous casting method:
IMCS-1500RC  is an induction melting and continuous casting furnace,  which can cast the rod, plate or wire continuously for various non-ferrous metals and alloys up to 5 kg at Max. 1500ºC under the Ar gases environmentThis device is necessary for wire preparation of metallic wire for AM ( Click here to see details)

Power Requirements
  • Input Voltage: 380V AC, Three Phases
  • Max. Current: 60A
  • Output:  25 kW
Crucible Chamber

  • One set of standard graphite crucibles is included for melting and solidification ( please click the picture below for dimensions)
  • Max. melting capacity 5 kg ( Au based )
  • Max. Melting point: 1500 ºC.  (1700ºC is available upon request at the extra cost)
  • Traction speed: 20cm/min
  • Types and sizes of castable profiles (Please discuss this with our engineer for your application before purchasing it.)
    • Wire: φ6-φ30mm
    • Tube/Rod: φ10-φ50mm
    • Plate: Width: 2-70mm
  • Graphite crucible size: 160 * 220mm with an M50 thread (inner hole hole φ30mm
  • Graphite lower mold: M50 * 150mm
  • Melting time: 10min
  • Protective Gas: argon, nitrogen with a purity of 9999 (2L per hour needed)
  • Traction rod: ø8mm
  • Rapid cooling device: water-cooled copper mold
  • Casting: Traction pulling(speed adjustable),  8-10cm per minute, about 2.5KG per hour
  • Casting speed control is available according to customer request
  • Vacuum casting ( 5 kg or 10kg capacity) is available upon request at the extra cost ( see Pic left -- an extra vacuum charmer is added

Temperature Control
  • Max.Working temperature 1500ºC (1700ºC is available upon request at the extra cost)
  • B-type thermocouple allows the user to closely control and monitor the temperature with the most accurate readings
  • The heating is electronically controlled to minimize temperature overshoot and to hold the set-point temperature stable
  • Bottom-pour design of the crucible ensures minimal temperature drop in the metal casting during the crucible-to-flask transfer
Vacuum and Inert Gas
  • Vacuum requirement: 1bar (-29.9" Hg) at sea level
  • The vacuum gauge and handle provide easy monitoring of vacuum pressure
  • Inert Gas Requirement: 5 liters/ minute @ 0.7 bar (10 psi) hi-purity nitrogen or argon
  • Double stage rotary vane vacuum pump is included with this casting system
Water Cooling 

  • 16L/min Flow, 6K BTU/hr  water chiller is required, but not included  ( you can use tap water or chiller water in your lab)
     Please click the picture left to order if you need a recirculating water chiller

Warranty One year limited warranty with lifetime support
Compliance CE certified
NRTL certification is available upon request at an extra cost
Application Notes

  • Attention: A pressure regulator must be installed on your input gas tank ( click the picture below to review ) and the output gas pressure set below 3 PSI at all times after opening the gas tank with the gas maintained in a continuous flowing condition. Gas build-up with pressure levels exceeding 3 PSI may cause irreversible damage to the furnace chamber.  
  • Never heat the furnace while the gas release valve is closed and a positive pressure condition exists within the furnace chamber. The pressure gauge must be used to closely monitor the chamber condition at all times during the heating process; please open the gas release valve immediately once the chamber pressure has reached over 3 PSI to prevent unforeseeable damages.
  • The flow rate for gases should be limited to < 200 SCCM ( or 200ml/min )
     1000 L x 500W  x 1500 H mm
