These include melting steel scrap to produce a variety of steels and steel castings. Inductotherm offers equipment to make stainless steel, alloy steels and master alloys for the casting industry and various applications including billet, shot, powder, castings and other specialty applications.

Our high power density, heavy steel shell coreless furnaces and efficient VIP® power supplies are leading a productivity revolution in high-production foundries.

Together with Inductotherm automation technologies for material charge drying/preheating, furnace charging, alloy batch preparation, computer control, fume collection and lining removal, these systems are increasing casting production while reducing energy and labor costs.

For medium to small steel melting operations, Inductotherm offers Dura-Line®, Mini-Melt®, and Rollover coreless induction furnaces.

About Inductotherm’s Traditional Coreless Furnaces

  • Coreless induction furnaces offer superior performance and outstanding durability for all your melt shop needs regardless of the size of your foundry
  • Able to meet the demanding requirements of the steel industry
  •  Dura-Line® Furnaces are designed to give foundries another choice in small- to medium-sized applications, while our Heavy Steel Shell Furnaces are built tough for the largest foundries

Advanced Solutions for Automation in Steel Melting

Inductotherm scrap drying and automated charging systems enhance safety and keep pace with melting operations. High-capacity heavy steel shell coreless melting furnaces assure a steady supply of on-specification molten steel, while our Meltminder® computer systems allow furnace operators to manage melting operations more precisely and safely while automating the collection of key performance data.

Recognizing that working on a melt deck is hard and sometimes dangerous, Inductotherm developed equipment that is designed to keep people away from molten metal. The ARMS™ (Automated Robotic Melt Shop) system is designed to perform all the dangerous melt deck operations such as slagging, temperature taking, metal sampling, making alloy additions, and verifying proper grounding.
