Chromalloy expands manufacturing capabilities to become master alloy producer
Chromalloy is expanding its investment casting foundry in Tampa, Florida, to include a master alloy operation. “Chromalloy’s new vacuum induction melting furnace will be fully operational in December 2013 at our state-of-the-art investment foundry,” said Carlo Luzzatto, President. “Over the next 90 days we will meet the manufacturing requirements to commence production of master alloys for ingots used to manufacture gas turbine engine equipment.” Alloy ingots are used in the production supply chain of complex systems and manufactured parts, including the gas turbine engine components cast and repaired by Chromalloy for power system manufacturers. In addition to producing master alloy ingots for internal use, Chromalloy will be in a position to provide the ingots to other manufacturers of turbine components worldwide. With the new highly automated, multiple chamber vacuum induction furnace for master alloy, Chromalloy has the capacity to produce up to three million pounds annually.
