  • DEVEOPMENT OF THE INSTITUTE :: ELECTROSLAG CASTING

    The electroslag casting is based on an electroslag process of melting of a consumable electrode. The electrode melts by heat released in the electroconductive slag when electrical current passes through. A casting is crystallized in a thin rim of the slag skull. As a result of the slow and strict unidirectional solidification of a small amount of liquid metal, high chemical and structural homogeneity of metal is ensured. Typical parts which can be produced by the electroslag casting method are the following: blanks of stamp and cutting tools, blanks of large-sized gears, rings, pulleys, gear-wheels, different forks, lugs, cases, journals, bimetallic blanks such as worm wheels, rollers for rolling, and so on.
