An optimum fi lling rate is made possible by the freely programmable tilting rate. This guarantees high quality and takes irregularities out of the process.
In contrast to gravity casting, tiltable casting offers the advantage of a clear reduction in returns. This is achieved with the utilization of the casting contour as a cast-in system and a reduced gating area. At the end of the fi lling process the last of the poured metal collects in the gating area which now serves as a feeder.
The advantage of the modular construction is also the flexible addition of core pulls with program- mable speeds to adapt the machine to a wide variety of demands. Intermetal machines can be completed to automatic casting cells by adding external units for melt, handling and parts removal.
