Our Products

Located in the heart of Northern California's Sonoma wine country, Rayteq manufactures advanced, energy-saving electric melting furnaces for the light metal casting industries, writes and supplies software that effectively reduces utility demand charges, and produces new, high power density heating elements for higher melting rates and longer operating life.


Electric Furnaces

Rayteq's new high-powered, compact electric furnaces paired with advanced hybrid digital/analog power controls slash energy costs by melting aluminum or magnesium right at the die casting machine or molding line.


Demand Management Systems

Rayteq's Fleet Commander™ Interactive Demand Management System (IDMS™) next-generation technology that enhances the many benefits of electric resistance melting by dramatically reducing electric utility demand.



RAYTEQ high power density heating elements with new life-enhancing materials technology achieve higher melting rates while virtually eliminating internal stresses for increased strength and shock resistance.

More About Us

Gas-Fired vs. Electric Melting

Are you considering purchasing gas-fired melting or holding furnaces because of the current low cost of natural gas? Early in his career, at the University of California at Berkeley's Department of Mechanical Engineering, the author participated in fascinating studies examining the effects of metal casting variables on light metal casting quality. These studies were privately funded by several well-known U.S. aerospace foundries that were looking for ways to consistently obtain stronger, better castings.

World's first electric melters shipped factory ready for KW demand management system.

Payback studies* confirm Rayteq electric furnaces equipped with Fleet Commander™ IDMS™ melt cheaper than natural gas.
