Ready for the future!

Our casting plants are already prepared for the requirements of the future such as Industry 4.0. The program control unit, the interfaces, and the GSM modem enable communication with other systems. For instance, remote control, online software updating, and robot integration in the casting process are all possible.

Thanks to its novel filling system, the new VC 680V vacuum pressure casting machine ensures maximum efficiency. With this innovative filling technique, it is no longer necessary to open the melting chamber for the next batch of metal. An automatic metal sensor signals when the material is missing in the feeder and needs replenishing.


  • lower personnel costs
  • more consistent casting quality
  • better process stability, less waste
  • optimized overlapping casting
  • up to 20 casting cycles per hour
  • high energy efficiency
  • longer service lives for consumables
  • minimized metal loss
  • replenishment without loss of pressure

Refilling without loss of temperature and pressure

The refill system with programmable dosing makes it possible to introduce the next batch of metal without the need to open the melting chamber. This ensures that the melting chamber temperature remains high and unnecessary loss of energy is avoided. Most importantly: No oxygen enters the melting chamber so the chamber does not need to be evacuated again and refilled with inert gas. This makes for faster casting cycles; the crucible and sealing rod benefit from the largely constant atmosphere and temperature and have significantly longer service lives.

An additional pressure tank integrated into the plant provides for even faster overpressure build-up for activation of the TurboPressure PLUS function.
