Step 4: Cast the Melt

We offer two different mould options- automatic on the Beadmaster or manual on the Fusilux series.

The Beadmaster automatic fusion machine uses mouldibles, combination mould and crucible receptacles, to fuse and create the bead. There is no casting step, just removing the mouldibles for cooling.

The manual pour moulding on the Fusliux machines offers more flexibility during casting. The moulds are heated in the hearth chamber while the samples are melted and agitated. The melt is carefully poured from the crucible into the mould while the mould is still in the hearth. The hot moulds are then removed from the hearth individually using the sliding arms and forced cooling starts automatically.
