Tilt casting with controlled filling for maximum quality

Controlled filling for maximum quality: Just like the skillful pouring of wheat beer, Kurtz casting machines fill the melt into the mould with low turbulence. Optimum filling speed is made possible by the freely programmable tipping speed. This ensures high quality and removes irregularities from the process.

Significant reduction of recirculating material

Compared with gravity casting, tilt casting offers the advantage of a significant reduction in the amount of recirculating material. This is achieved by utilizing the moulded part contour as a cast-in system and a reduced gating area. At the end of the filling process, the metal cast last collects in the gating area, which now serves as a feeder. The advantage of the modular design is also here the flexible attachment of core pulls with programmable travel speeds to adapt the machine to a wide range of requirements. The machines are completed by Kurtz with external units for melt handling and part removal to form automatic casting cells.
