Vacuum induction melting furnace (Inteco)

The Vacuum Induction Melting (VIM) process has been established as the most important primary vacuum melting technique for today´s industrial production of high performance special steels and super alloys for most demanding applications. VIM produced ingots are often used as electrodes in Electro Slag Remelting (ESR) and/or Vacuum Arc Remelting (VAR) processes. INTECO’s competence in the field of special steel plants has included the development of a completely new furnace design (developed in recent years), which enables our customers to reliably produce high end materials in a most modern way.


  • Single- or multi-chamber design
  • Casting chamber in mould tunnel or turn table design
