The melting of raw material components takes place in the IBE melting device, the latter being an advanced design of inductively heated crucible furnace.

Conventional technology:

  • cupola furnace (coke/gas), gas furnace or electrode furnace
    of high volume


  • changing composition of melt takes a long time
  • energy consumption
  • exhaust gases

Inductive melting:

  • minor melting volume
  • adjustable temperature control
  • higher efficency
  • flexibility (fast activation and shutdown)
  • possibility of thermal treatment
  • no burn-off of electrodes
