A thoroughly thought-through concept with the finest details

Forms the basis of the technological advances made in our VC machines guaranteeing optimal casting results whatever class of machine you opt for. Automatic inert gas or vacuum in the melting chamber to avoid undesired oxidization or the formation of inclusions during melting, particularly important when casting silver or red gold. The special œoxidation-reduced castingœ system eliminates the danger of oxidation while the flask is cooling down.

Turbo Pressure

Optimizes the casting of very small and filigree objects. For the production of jewelry it guarantees perfect results when casting with stones. Turbo Pressure allows a precisely defined pressure to be achieved rapidly. For all program-controlled VC models, depending on the selected program the Turbo Pressure will start automatically exactly at the required time.

More user control

The integrated data printer (optional for VC 500) records the parameters of every casting (ISO 9001). All machines with an induction generator can be remotely serviced via a GSM modem. The GSM modem enables Indutherm to remotely monitor and, if necessary, modify important parameters. This allows many potential operational disturbances to be detected in advance and hence avoided. If the machine isn™t working properly or a difficult casting procedure is being carried out, we can remotely provide quick and straightforward assistance.

Highest level of safety for certified production

The digital or program control of our machines means we can ensure a high level of safety i.e. we can guarantee an ISO certified casting process. Until recently flasks with incorrect or different temperatures were a safety risk. During casting of very small or delicate parts the temperature of the flask is of utmost importance. The measurement of the flask temperature (standard for machines from VC 500D onwards) is an important feature with regards to safety. The temperature of the flask can be monitored to within one degree accuracy.
