  • Publication number: 20190112688
    Abstract: A vacuum arc remelting system for forming an ingot from an electrode is provided that includes a crucible assembly configured to accommodate the electrode and the ingot, an electromagnetic energy source arranged about the crucible assembly, and a lift mechanism operable to move the electromagnetic energy source along a longitudinal axis of the crucible assembly. A magnetic field generated by the electromagnetic energy source is localized to an arc region during remelting, and in one form, the electromagnetic energy source is a coil assembly having a magnetic core and a plurality of coil pairs wrapped around the core, wherein the coil assembly is operable to generate a magnetic field from the coil based on electric current flowing in the plurality of coil pairs.
