For certain applications Ni-base alloys have to be produced by applying two vacuum processes. The common practice is to produce an ingot in the vacuum induction furnace (VIM) which is then taken as electrode for a subsequent remelting operation under vacuum (VAR). This paper describes the production of an Inconel-600 which was produced at the special melting shop of People Steel Mills Ltd. After a short overview of the production capabilities detailed results will be given with respect to the internal as well as surface quality. For example the non-metallic inclusions across the cross section of the VAR ingots through Scanning Electron Microscopy were examined. The result shows a definite pattern of the distribution of non-metallic inclusions and carbide precipitation across the grain boundaries. Ultimately this paper highlights the differences in the achievable quality over the entire production route leading finally to a material with superior quality and enhanced properties.
