Ceramics for the Investment Casting Industry
Magma is a leading supplier of crucibles, ladles and spouts to the Investment Casting industry with over 20 years’ experience within this sector.
Magma’s crucibles are designed to give excellent corrosion and erosion resistance, good thermal shock resistance and a consistent performance in terms of reducing cast inclusions whilst maximising productivity.
With better spalling resistance than most conventional materials our crucibles offer a cost benefit both in terms of process and product. Crucibles range in melting capacity from 0.5kg to 3000Kg
Ladles and Spouts:
Magma’s Ladles and Spouts are manufactured from the same pre-fired materials as our crucibles, thereby reducing inclusions compared to rammed ladles and hand formed spouts. Ladle liners are available in a variety of sizes and spout configurations, as well as open top and t-pot designs. Choose from our current size list or contact us for a custom size. Preformed spouts provide a clean consistent metal pour from campaign to campaign and are custom made to your trough shape and furnace dimensions.
