High performance material such as nickel base alloys are usually produced via the route VIM-ESR and/or VAR. Due to the complexity of these alloys special requirements on the furnace design and the process parameters has to be taken into account. This paper gives a brief overview of the basic principles of each process and the overall plant design highlighting the main features of VIM, ESR and VAR furnaces. Results will be given regarding the attainable ingot quality with respect to the chemical composition of VIM ingots as well as a comparison of the achievable macrostructure of ESR and VAR ingots.
