Indutherm GU-Series Granulating Machine - VC

Solutions for Granulation

  • For frequent or permanent production of granules, our GU series shotmakers will be the first choice
  • If you only want to produce granules occasionally, the addition of vacuum pressure or a continuous casting machine with a granulating tank is a good alternative
  • For the production of micro granules, we recommend our GU500 micro

The Granulating Machines - GU500, GU1000, GU3000, and GU12000

These shotmakers are developed especially for granulating bullions, sheet metal, or casting residues into proper grains. The granulating tanks are very easy to remove for cleaning. The GU machines are available with crucible sizes from 245ccm, up to 12,000ccm.

Major applications

  • Preparation of alloys out of gold and master alloy
  • Preparation of alloy components
  • Preparation of alloys from components
  • Cleaning up of already casted metal

The Micro Shot Systems GU500 micro, GU1000 micro, and GU5000 micro

The GU micro-series was developed for the production of micro granules with a grain size of between 0.1mm and 1mm. The systems are based on the Indutherm granulation units, but all key components, particularly the jet system, are special developments. The main areas of application for the micro-granules are in metal laser sintering processes, in jewelry surface design, and in soldering technology.

The Granulating Tank for casting machines in the VC and CC series

The optional equipment of vacuum pressure or a continuous casting machine with a granulating tank is a suitable solution for occasional granulating. Granulating tanks are available for all machines in the VC series from VC400 up to the VC12000 and all CC machines.

The main advantages of the new generations of shotmaker

  • Easy installation of the granulating tank
  • Fast-changing between casting process and granulating
  • Ergonomically and perfectly balanced design for safe and easy handling
  • Optimized streaming behavior of the cooling water
  • Reliable separation of water and granules
