Lift-Swing Furnaces offer nonferrous and precious metal casters an easily installed, highly productive crucible melting system.
Inductotherm Lift-Swing Furnaces are free-standing units that install right on the foundry floor. They are an excellent alternative to our Push-Out Furnaces when sub-surface conditions or foundation restrictions make it impractical to provide a pit that is required for the Push-Out Furnace’s cylinders. When the charge in the first crucible is melted and ready to be poured, the induction coil assembly is raised, swung to the second crucible and lowered to start the new melt as the first crucible is removed for pouring. For easy, accurate transfer, machined slots guide coil assembly movement to the exact position. A rugged aluminum shell protects the coil while a specially designed base contains spills. Coil movement is controlled by a foot valve operating a cylinder within the support post. Either plant air or hydraulic operation is available.
