Our continuous casting furnaces are designed to produce a wide range of semi-finished products of the highest quality (tube, plate and wire).
The furnaces are provided with a powerful and efficient induction power generator to allow a fast melting and a perfect mixing of the alloy, which guarantees its homogeneity.
After the melting, the metal passes into the die, where a special cooling system guarantees the perfect homogeneity of the cooling temperature on the whole surface of the profile.
In order to reduce the oxidation, a continuous inert gas injection creates an oxygen-free chamber from the crucible until the drawing unit.
In addition, a direct water cooling by sprinkles on the profile coming out of the die guarantees a perfect deoxidation, an extra cooling and an annealing treatment, which is very useful for alloys with high content of copper (as red gold) or for silver.
The temperature of the crucible ad of the die is constantly monitored by two thermocouples in order to guarantee the best grain structure of the profile and to avoid metal leakage.
