5The Continuous Casting Machines – the only ones with vacuum and/or quattro drive
More flexibility, lower costs Indutherm continuous casting machines help you to save production costs.
With only one machine, you can produce your own alloys or semi-finished products in different shapes and sizes in the shortest time, for example:
- wires or bars in every diameter you need, up to ø 90 mm (V-CC3000)
- sheets and strips, e.g. ring production, for stamping and pressing
- tubes, perfect as basic material for cutting in sections for wedding ring production
As the desired parts and alloys can be produced within minutes, you can reduce your investment for material in storage. Your processes will get faster, more flexible and more efficient. With optionally available equipment as for example sintering set for diffusion bonding and granulation tank the versatility of these machines may be enhanced even more.
The new CC/VCC generation: improved for even higher quality
The new CC/VCC machines are equipped with new and highly efficient induction generators. Thanks to a new control panel with full text LCD display, all parameters are very easy and convenient to set (100 casting programs).
To reduce the risk of oxidation during melting and during drawing, the new machines are equipped with inert gas function, vacuum system for the melting chamber (VCC), optical die temperature measurement, die cooler with inert gas flushing and additional secondary cooling system. All these measures are ideal especially for alloys containing copper such as red gold or for silver as these materials tend to oxidise easily. Degasification under a vacuum results in a substantially improved – because of the absence of oxidation – semi-finished product.
Optional quattro drive system
The optional drawing unit with four instead of two motor driven feed rolls produce smoother tubes and sheeting with reduced marks of transportation. This system is available now for each CC or VCC machine.
With a wide range of optionally available equipment the versatility of these machines may be enhanced even more.
Granulation tank and sintering kit
The easy to install granulation tank makes each CC machine even more versatile. CC 400 and VCC 400 are furthermore offering a third application possibility: with the sintering kit you can use this machine for diffusion bonding,e.g. for the production of multi-layer rings.
