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.
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
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.
