  • Capacity & Power For Large Scale Projects

    Our large vacuum pressure casting machines are mostly used for precise castings in aluminium 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 aluminium: the hydrogen content of aluminium alloys may be adjusted by regulating the vacuum during melting. This way, 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 form filling especially in filigree or thin-walled areas.

    The V-Versions With Vibration

    All our large VC machines are now equipped with a new program control system. The casting process is controlled via LCD full text display. Complete casting cycles may be stored for repeatable castings. 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.

    Magnesium Casting Versions

    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.
