Trade name
Mini Arc Melter MAM-1 Buehler
Technical description

These units are used for the synthesis of 5-20 g alloys, including high-melting materials, by arc remelting. The furnaces have a built-in rotary pump, a tungsten electrode and a 180 A generator. The melting process is carried out on a water-cooled copper plate in a chamber after it has been drained and filled with inert gas. One of the furnaces is equipped with a system that allows materials to be obtained in the form of bars with a diameter of 3 mm and a length of 30 mm by sucking the liquid alloy into a copper mould (so-called suction casting).
