Casting Ovens

Our casting ovens come in two styles, top loading and front loading. Designed to reach 1600 degrees, they are perfect for mold casting, and also can double for slumping, fusing and annealing.

For all casting kilns we use stainless for the lips around hot faces, with strain relief slots to prevent warping. With more power per cubic foot than annealers, casting ovens get to their higher temp faster.  Top loaders have an extra air gap and aluminum skin on the front to keep the user cool when leaning into a hot oven.

These ovens are lined with insulating firebrick that is backed by ceramic fiberboard making them efficient, durable components of your studio. Elements are recessed into slots cut into the brick wall, and door limit switches de-energize heating elements when doors are open to protect the user from any electrical hazard. Levelers are standard on casting ovens.
