New programm control system 

Thanks to a new control panel with real text LCD display, all programs and parameters are very easy and comfortable to set.
100 casting programs guarantee fast operation and consistent casting results. For all major alloys, e.g. for AGS, Alpha Plus, Heraeus, Legor and Pandora alloys, the parameters are preprogrammed. That means for you in practice: from the first flask on, you can expect good casting results without making expensive pretests.

Turbulence reduction software

This is a new system for a faster and more laminar metal flow.

The Indutherm Vibration System

The vibration technology (pat. pending) is the most important of all technical features. Independent scientific studies show that:

  • Vibration improves material flow and hence the quality of the mould filling, particularly with complicated moulds.
  • Castings exhibit a higher and more consistent density for all tested alloys and shapes.
  • Porosity is substantially reduced.
  • Risk of hot cracks is reduced.
  • 50% smaller grains
  • Castings have greater stress and elasticity properties, making them easier to process further.

In practice this means:
higher and more consistent casting quality, less waste, less post-processing, more possibilities for further processing.
