The machine also features a built-in mechanical manipulator for tilting and rotating metal ingots if re-smelting process is needed. The SS304 chamber ensures a clean and healthy atmosphere suitable for the most demanding experimental requirements.

 

Technical Parameters:

Features Utilize the vacuum suction force to draw melt into the cold copper casting mold at the bottom and from a 6mm Dia. rod metal alloy (upto 30g)

Designed for melting samples < 10 g up to 3000 °C under tiny positive pressure or low vacuum

Water-cooled SS vacuum chamber, electrode, and copper crucible allows arc melting of multiple samples without cross-contamination

Powerful arc melting power supply enables reliable, stable arc ignition

Easy electrode tilting and height adjustment via a handwheel

A built-in mechanical manipulator for tilting and rotating samples without breaking the vacuum

A tinted observation window on the front for monitoring melting process

Vacuum Suction Casting & Copper Crucible Vaccuum suction casting 6mm dia. rod, 30g max.

The sucking force is generated by evacuating the bottom cold copper casting mold. This results in a fast movement and cause the rapid solidification of the melt which is ideal for reducing the shrinkage cavity defects

One solenoid valve is built in for sucking operation

The water-cooled copper crucible has 7 cavities:

Central cavity (35mm dia. x 10mm depth) is for vacuum suction casting

The other six surrounded cavities (25 mm Dia. × 8 mm depth) are reserved for metal alloy pellet preparation, max. 10g

Vacuum Pressure

Gauge

A mechanical vacuum pressure gauge is installed for monitoring the chamber pressure.

The anti-corrosive capacitance diaphragm gauge is optional with additional cost.

Water Chiller & Gas (Optional) Water cooling is required (not included) for the chamber, copper mold, and electrode. Please consider our recirculating water chiller.r.

High purity inert gas with at least 5N purity (>99.999%) is required (not included)

5% Hydrogen + 95% Argon gas may be used to prevent oxidation during melting process

Net Weight 50 kg
Compliance CE certified

UL/CSA certification by NRTLs is available at an extra fee. Please contact us for the quote.

Warranty One-year limited warranty with lifetime support
Application & Warning Notes High purity Ar gas is required for the melting operation. Gas purification module is recommended to ensure gas purity. A two-stage pressure regulator must be installed on the gas cylinder to limit the pressure to below 3 psi for safe operation.

To avoid any damages to the mechanical pump or turbo pump, please install an Inline Particle Trap(maximum 1E-4 Torr vacuum with turbo pump) on the pump inlet port

Must Wear Welder Glass or Auto Welding Shade while observing the Arc while welding.

An example of the system setup with turbomolecular pump can be on the left

The unit is designed for arc melting operation under tiny positive pressure or low vacuum (0.01 – 0.11 MPa pressure, or positive 0.01 MPa to negative 0.09 MPa pressure). Never operate the unit at high vacuum or high positive pressure!

During arc melting operation, never allow the electrode to touch the material or the copper crucible! Do not operate the mechanical manipulator during the melting process.

Option: The user may use a quartz tube shielding to effectively reduce the splash and spilling while arc melting.
