PAM Plasma Arc Melting Furnace

Plasma Features

  • Processing under high temperature and inert gas atmosphere close to atmospheric pressure thus avoiding evaporation
  • Consolidation of alloys with highly volatile alloying elements (e.g. Ti-Alloys, Ti-Aluminides)
  • Refining of alloys with highly volatile alloying elements (e.g. Ti-Alloys, Ti-Aluminides) by cold hearth refining process
  • Recycling of revert material from machining steps
  • Recycling of precious metal in used catalysts 
  • Homogenization
  • Welding

As a single source supplier ALD is able to supply all necessary components and services for a complete plasma melting system which can consist of the following systems:

  • Plasma furnace with material feeders and ingot withdrawal systems
  • Plasma torch systems including power supplies with recipe based power – and torch pattern control by PLC
  • Closed loop cooling water system
  • Closed loop inert gas recycling and purification system
  • Weighing and Blending Units
  • Compacting presses
  • Turn-key installation and commissioning
  • Process support
