Retech Systems LLC of Ukiah, Calif., formally commissioned a new two-gun electron-beam (EB) melting system to add capability to its Internal Research & Development (IR&D) team. The system will be able to melt a range of materials from titanium and titanium alloys to silicon and other refractory metals. It will be available for developmental use by Retech customers as well as the SECO/WARWICK group of companies (Retech became a part of the SECO/WARWICK group in 2011). System installation began early in 2015, with final commissioning taking place over the second half of 2015. Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum was one of several sponsor companies that offered support.
