Casting scheme in EMC using ElmaCast ™ technology
Liquid metal (1) from the dosing tray (2) is fed into the inductor (3). The inductor (3) creates a high-frequency electromagnetic field that keeps the melt from spreading and creates an intense MHD circulation in it.
The circulation of the melt ensures a high degree of homogenization of the chemical composition and thermodynamic conditions. Also, non-metallic inclusions (4) in the melt migrate from the area of the electromagnetic field, which ensures a high degree of metal purity.
Under the direct action of the coolant from the spray cooler (5), the liquid metal crystallizes. A high cooling rate (up to 1000–10,000 K / s) ensures the formation of a finely dispersed structure. The winding mechanism (6) continuously draws out the forming bar stock of the required diameter at a given speed.
