We are sorry that our scheduled casting seminar cannot take place as planned. For operational reasons a group of participants had to cancel their reservation.

We will try to find a new date for this seminar in near future. If you want us to inform you about the new seminar date, please contact Chester Wallace, Phone +49 7203 9218-36, Email: casting@indutherm.de



Indutherm Atomiser presented at the SDMA 2013

TF 4000 tilting furnace for melting and pouring

At the 5th International Conference „Spray Deposition and Melt Atomization” (SDMA 2013) in Bremen from September 23-25, 2013 the latest Indutherm project has been presented:

The Indutherm Atomiser
for small-scale powder batch production

This ZIM project* carried out in collaboration with the University of Bremen deals with gas atomisation of alloys; e.g. on Cu-, Au-, Ag- or Sn-basis.

Hagener Symposium 2013
“Modern production processes – quality and productivity in powder metallurgy"

in the city hall Hagen on November 28/29, 2013. We will be represented as exhibitors in Hagen, too, and we are looking forward to welcoming visitors from research and industry!


Successful launch at Baselworld 2013:
compact and highly efficient TF series tilting furnaces

TF 4000 tilting furnace for melting and pouring

At Baselworld we presented a completely new developed generation of tilting casting machines. The TF 1200, TF 2000 and TF 4000 models substitute their correspondent predecessors, which are used in the jewellery industry and in precious metal foundries. They are equipped with new high performance induction generators that reach the melting point significantly faster and ensure thorough mixing and homogenisation of the molten metals. Depending on the model, the capacity ranges from a crucible volume of 1200 to 4000 ccm, corresponding to approx. 60 kg of 18 ct. gold.

Original Indutherm consumables: Quality pays off!

Recently we have analysed the documented results of our customer dialogues which were related to certain casting problems.

The result: Using original Indutherm consumables definitely pays off through better casting results, fewer post-production work and longer lifetime of your machine and the consumables themselves. This is the result of a study, in which we have analysed the documented results of our customer dialogues which were related to certain casting problems.

The small TM series melting machines are from now on replaced with new MU versions. They offer same power and melting capacity as the TMs, but in the stable MU housing with large deposit area, with easier handling and optionally equipped with one or two vacuum chambers (= MUV 100 C bzw. MUV 200). The MU / MUV series now covers a crucible volume range from 50 to 1200 ccm.
The C versions MU 100 C and MU 200 C reach a maximum temperature of 2.000° C.

Energy efficiency that goes that bit further

In a recent tendering process for a range of precious metal smelting machines for a large metal refinery, the principal aim was to achieve defined casting volumes per hour. The providers in the final round had to demonstrate the capabilities of the machines under working conditions (requirement: smelt 100kg of silver and cast it into ingots within an hour). With its TF 12000 tilting casting machine (60kW, max. 1500 degrees C, 12,000cc crucible volume), Indutherm was up against a competitor machine with more than twice the power. Yet Indutherm was faster - and offered the additional benefit of substantially less energy consumption.

The magic "V" for perfect casting

Vibration casting and a perfectly aligned Vacuum pressure system

What are the most important factors for successful and efficient casting production? A consistently high casting quality, making the costs for post-processing predictable and, above all, keeping them down. A reject rate that is as low as possible. And a high resilience of the casting component during post-processing. This is why many foundry managers attach particular value to two things, or rather two "V"s, when it comes to casting machines...  more


The fastest and most economic way to produce multicolour rings

For the production of multi-coloured rings sintering is the optimal way. Tubes in different metals or alloys, which have been produced with a continuous casting machine, are cut in sections. These sections get connected under pressure and at temperatures just below the solidification point. The fusion between the layers has the same durability as the metal itself – assuming the material for the layers is accurate and the process has been executed correctly.

Solar Power: photovoltaic elements on our roofs

In connection with the construction of our new annex we stocked our roof areas with all in all 336 photovoltaic elements. We will inform you about the produced number of KWh as soon as one year of feeding-in has passed.


Up to 15 flasks per hour with the VC 650 V

vacuum pressure casting machine with program control for overlapping casting

Program controlled "Overlapping Casting" makes it possible. As every experienced casting man knows, the metal in the flask should cool down under vacuum for some minutes after casting. The program control of the vacuum-pressure casting machine VC 650 V integrates this cooling down phase into the automated casting cycle. For the user this means: He gets indicated by display and in addition by an acoustic signal when the cast flask can be removed and the new flask can be inserted for the next casting. In the meantime the crucible can be filled, the melting chamber can be evacuated and the next charge can be molten. Thereby it is avoided that the flask is taken out too early and also that any time is wasted. The result: 12 - 15 flasks per hour is no problem any more!


Not only for cars...
