Our production processes are focussed on the vacuum induction melting of alloys and we can produce individual melts from just 5kg up to 600kg. The form of these materials varies from cast alloy ingots, cast shapes through to powders and rapidly cooled flakes generated by strip casting. All of these materials include rare earth and non-rare earth elements.
Strip cast flake is produced by pouring molten alloy onto a rotating water-cooled copper drum to produce a rapidly cooled product with a specific microstructure. LCM has two 600kg strip cast furnaces that can deliver multi-tonne quantities and most of this production is of the NdFeB alloy family. We have also recently produced a 100kg strip cast of NdFeB and MnAlc alloy for the PASSENGER project, demonstrating our capability to produce high-performance alloys for various applications.
All of our products are produced to order and meet tight customer specifications with respect to composition, low levels of impurities, microstructure, physical form and excellent batch-to-batch reproducibility. You can therefore rely on LCM to deliver materials that meet your specifications when you need them.
