The path to high performance and consequently high output passes through automation. The illustrated system with four pressure caster back-pressure casting machines is an example of an intelligently thought-out system.
The entire casting process from the molten metal supply to the x-ray inspection system is fully automated. A central robot between two casting machines performs multiple tasks: automatic strainer placement, component removal and, so-called ´emergency removal´, which is used for discharging start-up parts from the subsequent process chain.
An innovative access concept provides the operator with an ergonomically optimized workplace with optimum access, because three sides of the machine are open and not obstructed by additional equipment.
All maintenance and adjustment work is carried out from the operating level. The functional design makes a work and media platform in the upper section superfluous. Molds are replaced and furnaces exchanged from the rear of the machine.
