Induction casting machines help companies optimize and control their casting process while improving energy efficiency, increasing repeatability, and productivity. The main goal of Ultraflex is to offer the most efficient centrifugal and pressure induction casting technologies to save time and money for all customers. Utilizing our core competencies in engineering, we can offer a wide range of high-quality induction casting equipment systems that are well used in the jewelry and industrial casting industries.
Industrial induction casting is a manufacturing process during which a liquid metal is injected by centrifugal force into a mold of the desired shape. Once the metal is solidified, the mold is either ejected or broken.
Our centrifugal casting machines rotate the mold and crucible simultaneously at a very high speed, injecting the molten metal into the mold. The patented Rotating Coil System continues to provide power by rotating the coil with the arm and mold, keeping the metal in a liquid phase during the injection. The metal easily spreads along the walls of the mold where it solidifies. The solidification process usually starts from the outside to the core. The whole process is completed within 5 minutes.
UltraFlex industrial casting machines are suitable for titanium casting, where Alpha case is minimized, due to a controlled, protective gas atmosphere. Employing them for the high-precision casting of other metals and alloys (both lost wax and solid mold casting) is also common.
Most of our customers use the industrial casting equipment for the development of metallurgical samples which later undergo x-ray analyses, re-melting, a fusion of metal alloys and powders, casting of AAS, ICP, as well as casting of high-precision, near-net-shape, and 3D printed waxes.
