Detail low pressure caster b

LOW PRESSURE CASTER B

YOUR ADVANTAGES

  • Compact design
  • High separation forces
  • Quick furnace exchange thanks to liftable lower mold clamping platen
  • Automatic locking and unlocking of the furnace plate to the lower mold clamping platen
  • Production possible with multiple dies
  • High withdrawal accuracy thanks to massive mechanical synchronization
  • Easy to maintain

THE PRINCIPLE

On application of pressure, the molten metal rises through a riser pipe from the furnace into the die, where it solidifies. The die opens and the casting is ejected. After removal of the casting, the die halves are cleaned and the process starts over.

The design of the low pressure caster enables production with different or multiple dies, thereby achieving a higher level of flexibility.

In the form of the "low pressure caster b" low pressure casting machine, Fill provides an impressive machine concept that unites casting, cooling, and ergonomic operation in a reproducible process and delivers high-grade aluminum castings as a result.

Its compact construction allows the "low pressure caster b" to be maintained at its operating height and without any additional equipment (ladders). The unique function of the liftable lower mold clamping platen makes it possible to change furnaces very quickly. It is also possible to change furnace with or without a furnace plate.
