Our large vacuum pressure casting machines are mostly used for precise castings in aluminum alloys. They are always the first choice for parts with complicated geometry or when the number of pieces is not large enough for die-cast production. VC1000, VC3000, and VC12000 offer the best pre-conditions for high-quality casting in aluminum: the hydrogen content of aluminum alloys may be adjusted by regulating the vacuum during melting. This way, the foaming of molten metal can be avoided without any additives. Overpressure in the melting chamber during and after casting and simultaneous vacuum in the flask chamber optimize the form filling especially in filigree or thin-walled areas.
All our large VC machines are now equipped with a new program control system. The casting process is controlled via an LCD full-text display. Complete casting cycles may be stored for repeatable castings.
These machines are designed to be as easy to use as possible for the caster, producing top results with very little training required. This line also breeds efficiency with the ability to Change of crucible/stopper rod in a very short time
The RS 232 user interface on these machines is designed with business in mind. Aside from the control, it grants the user, a complete data record is available to be both accessed and printed.
VC1000, VC3000, and VC12000 boast top-of-the-line performance results at a much more economical price tag than its contemporaries, representing leading value-performance ratio marks in the industry.
Each machine is available in two versions: The standard versions offer 20 casting programs, the V-versions have 100 programs and as the most important innovation, they use the vibration technology for improved form filling.
The magnesium casting versions are constructed according to strict safety requirements and guarantee safe and easy casting of magnesium – and of course of every other metal too.
These machines are perfect for all industrial applications, and most of all factories. Acquire the ability to rapidly prototype models no matter the industry. These machines can be found in the automotive, component, orthopedic, medical technology, and machinery construction fields. Even great for sculptors!
