VSG systems are cold-wall furnaces of corrosion-resistant stainless steel with water-cooled double wall vessel. The melting and casting device consists of a tiltable induction coil with coaxial power and coolant feedthrough and the mould table. The material of the applied crucibles is adapted to the melting material. If the melting material is non-reactive with carbon, crucibles made of graphite or clay-graphite can be used. Where required, crucibles of high-melting metals may also be employed as far as the melting material does not react with the crucible material. In these cases, the crucible acts as a secondary winding for power induction.
Otherwise crucibles made of oxide-ceramics are applied for carbon-reactive metals. Then the power is directly induced in the melting metal. Power is supplied by static medium-frequency converter systems. A VSG vacuum melting and casting system mainly comprises: the furnace chamber, the vacuum pumping unit, the power supply and the control cabinet, the melting and casting device as well as a vacuum lock for melt manipulations. These modules can be combined in different versions.
