Induction Function II. High frequency induction furnace coil with hot work piece. A molten metal is held in a quartz crucible in preparation for injection into the water cooled copper mold at the bottom. To inject the metal, the crucible will be lowered to 2mm above the mold and high pressure gas will force the metal out through the nozzle. That injection process is completed in under 1 second. The system is used for injection casting of metals which form metallic glass (amorphous metals).
