The ferrous furnace is installed in the Rapid Tooling and Manufacturing unit to melt metal for casting process. Originally the tilting motion of the furnace was operated on by the hydraulic system.
However the failure of the metallic hoop of the existing hydraulic tilting system occurred due to the unbearable shear stress acted on it.
Therefore the tilting action is now controlled by hand in pouring the molten metal into casting mould. The operation temperature of the furnace is 1650íV1700 degree.
