Die Casting: Crucible Furnace

By Furnace Engineering

Furnace Engineering together with Nabertherm offers a range of Crucible Furnaces for melting and holding requirements. The range starts from a small 1 litre bench top furnace up to the large 400 litre capacity furnace. The furnace can electrically heated, Gas or Oil fired, Stationary or Tilting.

The furnaces heat around the crucible to ensure good temperature uniformity of the melt. The high grade insulation in the furnace results in low casing temperature, energy efficiency and long life.

The floor of the furnace is sloped to an emergency runout port minimising damage to the furnace in the event of crucible damage. Temperature control system monitors both the chamber and melt to prevent thermal cycling.
