The TF 1200, TF 2000 and TF 4000 models, which, like their predecessors, are used in the jewellery industry and in precious metal foundries, are completely new developments. They are equipped with new high performance induction generators that reach the melting point significantly faster and ensure thorough mixing and homogenisation of the molten metals. Depending on the model, the capacity ranges from a crucible volume of 1200 to 4000 ccm, corresponding to approx. 60 kg of 18 ct. gold. The melting unit and crucible can be tilted and locked in position by the user at multiple angles for gentler filling. Such “soft pouring” also prevents damage to the crucible. Pouring off is continuous and gradual, using a pivot lever. The operator is forced to stand to the side of the machine – away from the dangers of the pouring off area. The new TF machines offer the same maximum outputs as their predecessors – but the effective power consumption for a comparable melting load is significantly lower.
