The new 50kg Vacuum Induction Melting (VIM) system, designed by Retech Systems LLC in Ukiah, CA, has been customized specifically to meet the demanding requirements of Tritech and its customers. This melting system will provide added capability for casting a range of products and materials through a number of cost and time saving features developed at Retech.
John McKellar, of Retech Systems, stated that “This 50kg VIM is ideally suited to meet the needs of Tritech and their customers. Nowhere else will they find a similar configuration that can and will improve capacity, composition and consistency that they will see in this system.”
As a part of the SECO/WARWICK group of companies, Retech can take advantage of the global manufacturing capabilities for this system, improving time and cost savings. Delivery is slated for late in 2016 with startup to begin shortly thereafter.
