Vacuum Induction Melt (VIM)

Minimizing atmospheric contamination by melting under vacuum reduces oxides, nitrides and other detrimental inclusions and enhances an alloy's properties. Metalwerks excels at inclusion reduction and producing ultra clean alloys.

Our VIM furnace is capable of melting ingots up to 550 lbs. In addition, we can melt ingots as small as 50-70 lbs. The VIM can also produce multiple, individually poured ingots as small as 6 lbs each that are made from a single melt.
