Induction melting furnaces
Our high-quality steels are melted in our induction melting furnaces. The comparatively small melting-aggregate allows a large degree of flexibility, which offers Lohmann the opportunity to develop special programs for specific requests.
Moreover, induction furnaces have the advantage that the pre-determined analysis can be kept very precisely since very little evaporation and slagging of the alloy-metals takes place.
Pre-sorted scrap in high-grade steel, which is almost 100% recyclable, forms the basis of the load material; the fine-tuning of the melt-analysis takes place with ferrous alloys, highly available in alloy-metal, which are added in measured doses after the computer-assisted spectroscopic analysis.
