Continuous Casting Machines – The Only Ones with Vacuum and Quattro Drive
Continuous casting machines from Indutherm are more flexible and help to reduce production costs. With only one machine, custom alloys or semi-finished products can be produced in different shapes and sizes:
- wires or bars in every diameter you need, up to ø 85 mm (CC 1000/3000)
- sheets and strips, e.g. ring production, for stamping and pressing
- tubes, perfect as basic material for cutting in sections for wedding ring production
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.
The new CC/VCC generation 2015: 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.
