Controlled Filling for Maximum Quality

Just as the Bavarian expertly pours his Weissbier in the glass, Kurtz casting machines fill the molten metal into the mould with low turbulence. An optimum filling rate is made possible by the freely programmable tilting rate. This guarantees high quality and takes irregularities out of the process.

         

Clear reduction in returns

In contrast to gravity casting, tiltable casting offers the advantage of a clear reduction in returns. This is achieved with the utilization of the casting contour as a cast-in system and a reduced gating area. At the end of the filling process the last of the poured metal collects in the gating area which now serves as a feeder. The advantage of the modular construction is also the flexible addition of core pulls with programmable speeds to adapt the machine to a wide variety of demands. Kurtz machines can be completed to automatic casting cells by adding external units for melt handling and parts removal.
