What Is Arc Melting Equipment?

Arc melting equipment is a sophisticated tool that melts down various metals and materials using a high current, low voltage electric arc between an electrode and the material. This generates intense heat that enables the material to reach its melting point. Essential components include:

  • An arc melter, which applies the electric arc. 
  • Melt spinners, which rapidly cool or solidify molten material. 
  • A protective atmosphere, usually vacuum or inert, to prevent unwanted reactions. 

What Applications Are Arc Melting Systems Used For?

Arc melting furnaces and systems play a crucial role in various scientific and industrial processes:

  • Metallurgy and materials science: The arc melter creates and studies new alloys, ceramics and composite materials by melting and mixing different elements and compounds. 
  • Production of specialty alloys: High purity and specialized alloys, often used in the aerospace and automotive industries, are produced through arc melting. 
  • Material recycling: Arc melting can assist in the reprocessing and recycling metals and other materials, aiding sustainability efforts. 
  • Crucible welding: Melt tools can be used for crucible welding, creating a strong joint between two metal surfaces by melting a small area where they meet. 
  • Metallic buttons: The arc melter can create metallic buttons, small samples of pure or alloyed metal often used in research and testing applications. 
  • Material densification: Researchers and industries utilize arc melting to densify materials, reducing porosity and increasing density, enhancing the material's mechanical properties. 
  • Arc casting: Arc melting finds another prominent application in arc casting, melting materials before casting them into specific shapes or forms. This technique proves invaluable in manufacturing and materials research.
