Highest quality produced with low pressure

Successful appearance at the Aluminium 2010 trade fair. The Fill

low pressure caster unites casting, tool cooling, and ergonomic operation in a single process.


The Austrian high-tech machine engineering company Fill presented a very convincing machine concept at Aluminium 2010 from 14th - 16th September in Essen in the form of the low pressure caster, a low-pressure casting machine of the highest quality. Thanks to extremely high traversing speeds, the low pressure caster impresses with the highest levels of cost-effectiveness. "The future is in lightweight construction. Our challenge is to find new solutions that increase our customers´ productivity," says CEO Wolfgang Rathner. Alongside the low pressure caster, the high-performance bandsaw speedliner shuttle was also to be seen live in action at the Fill exhibition stand.


Essen / Gurten, 23rd September 2010Cost-effectiveness combined with leading edge technology; these are the two parameters behind the development of the new machines and systems from Fill. Outstanding examples of this were to be seen at Aluminium 2010 in Essen (14th - 16th September 2010) at the Fill exhibition stand in Hall 1A (stand 1A230). The innovative low-pressure casting machine, low pressure caster, and the high-performance bandsaw, speedliner shuttle, attracted a great deal of attention from customers and trade representatives alike.


Low turbulence with maximum productivity

The low pressure caster impresses with a whole range of benefits. It enables low-turbulence casting combined with maximum productivity thanks to its high traversing speed. The stiffness of the machine allows customers to reduce the taper of the tools (castings) to an absolute minimum. A synchronization shaft permits stress-free movement, allowing either one large die with uneven weight distribution or two different dies to be manipulated. The outstanding ergonomics of the new machine are obvious. First and foremost, they make operation, maintenance, cleaning, and assessment of the two die halves much simpler for the user. Pivoted slides ensure the greatest possible ease of use of this, the latest, technology from Fill.


Ultimate sawing precision

The highest levels of precision, performance and flexibility in the production of aluminum and composite panels are guaranteed by the speedliner shuttle high-performance bandsaw. The blocks of aluminum or composite material are guided on servo-driven shuttle systems and divided into panels by means of the horizontal fine-cutting bandsaw module. Kerfs as narrow as 1.4 mm ensure high levels of cost-effectiveness. Depending on individual requirements, the Fill speedliner shuttle  can be operated as a stand-alone machine or in a production line of several in-series, automated bandsaw modules.
