Almex’s LARS® Treatment cleans metal by removing physical impurities (hydrogen gas and inclusions), chemicals (alkali metals) & metallurgical impurities (alkali salts, sludge, and inter-metallic). LARS operation is based on the proven principle of high-energy diffusion and chemically driven mass transfer.
Almex’s CASTRIGHT II™ Automation System integrates all the peripheral equipment and processes involved in the casting operation. The system integrates Allen and Bradley PLC’s with custom designed HMI interface screens providing a very user friendly and intuitive layout. Our control systems boast multi-language support for worldwide compatibility.
For alloy development work , Almex has designed a dedicated research and development casthouse where small runs of 1.5 mt per cast can be undertaken. The facility is a mini version of a complete casthouse including tilting melting furnace, LARS® Purification System, CFF Filtration, MEGA™ casting machine, and CASTRIGHT II™ System Automation.
