Gravity Casting Machine

Kurtz AK 10

Gravity Casting Machine in full equipment

Gravity casting is the classic casting process of all. Known for centuries, it still offers potential for improvement. Kurtz has developed a machine concept especially for customer foundries, which can be used universally due to its modular design. Flexibility with regard to a wide variety of castings is required here. Changeover must be possible without great effort. Kurtz machines meet these requirements without any problems. The basic machine is also suitable for the requirements of highly complex castings by adding core pulls and additional clamping units.

1. clamping unit; 2. ejector core puller; 3. clamping unit fixed with ejector core puller; 4. core puller bottom; 5. core pullers sideways; 6. clamping unit top; 7. ejector core puller top

Advantages of Kurtz Gravity Casting Machines:

  • Freely programmable control

  • Recipe management to store machine and process data

  • Solid machine design for harsh foundry conditions

  • Modular machine design: closing units, ejectors and core pulls are interchangeable

  • Continuous adjustment of all units available as option

  • Precise guiding of mould segments & high closing forces

  • Hydraulics with pressure and flow rate controlled pumps

  • Optimum accessibility

  • Hydraulic manual lever control or freely programmable microprocessor control with display and operator guidance

     

There is a special advantage of all Kurtz Gravity Casting Machines: add-on parts can be exchanged between both machine types.
