ILT Plasma > ILT Plasma

In response to the often repeated but not always remembered recommendation for cold melting and hot casting, lies the proposal of ILT to apply high-power thermal plasma in the heating of casting units. The aim is to heat only the amount of metal that will be casted at a given moment, with the consequent economic and metallurgical benefits.

We apply the technology that has been developed by our partner TECNALIA, the first private applied Research Centre of Spain and one of the most relevant in Europe, which after 15 years of research has been able to obtain several patents and achieve one of the greatest innovations that have occurred in the foundry industry world-wide.

Behind ILT Plasma, are INSERTEC and LORAMENDI, two industrial partners with extensive experience in the sector where we carry out our business, and the Applied Research Centre TECNALIA.
