The increasing demands being made on the quality of special alloys means new ideas need to be found and incorporated into the ESR process. One of the new possible approaches is the use of a rotating electrode during the ESR process. To find out the influence of a rotating electrode during the ESR process, the atmospheric ESR unit at the institute IME/RWTH Aachen University was redesigned by SMS Mevac GmbH: its vertically-oscillating function has been changed to a rotating and vertically-oscillating function. This paper presents the results regarding the molten metal pool formation for better crystallization and the cleanliness of ESR ingots which have been remelted with rotating electrodes.
