Twenty-Five Years’ Experience in Electroslag Remelting Development
The first electroslag (ES) furnace in Western Europe was put in operation with the help of the E.O Paton Electric Welding Institute (Kiev, USSR) In July 1965 at a plant in Firmini (France).1 In 1973, at the IV Aircraft Conference in Burge, the first report comparing the characteristics of electroslag-remelted (ESR) and vacuum arc-remelted (VAR) steels for landing gear components of the “Concord” and “Aerobus” aircraft was presented. At the Aircraft Conference in June 1981, a report was made on investigations of the quality of critical aircraft components fabricated from steel produced by improved ESR techniques and equipment.
