- The MODULAR 6 NEW upgrades a machine which has enjoyed a fine reputation worldwide for over 20 years.
The very latest technology makes available to lost-wax casters of precious metals a completely renewed centrifugal casting machine embodying the mosfet solid state generator system.
- Automatic pneumatically-actuated coil lift system.
- Programmable centrifuge speed: 200/250/300/350 RPM (or other speeds).
- Programmable acceleration of the centrifuge rotation (up to maximum RPM for platinum casting in 1/3 seconds and 2 seconds for gold and silver alloys); continuously variable over a wide range.
- Electronically controlled gas cover system.
- Electrically-controlled fume extraction from crucible.
- Programmable spin duration (dependent on metal volume).
- Stepless heating power control.
- Optical (infrared) pyrometry system for melt temperature control.
- Adjustable blue glass screen for platinum melting.
- Accessory “kits” for crucible capacities: 500/1000/2000/3000 grammes gold and from 50 to 200, 100 to 350 and 200 to 500 grammes platinum, also 650 grammes steel.
- Maximum flask dimensions 150 mm ø x 200 mm h (6” ø x 8” h).
- Casting arm with double hinge feature to ensure a linear and smooth entry of the molten metal into the flask (avoiding the turbulence porosity). Provision for permitting egress of entrapped gases through the investment mould.
- All functions controlled by a PLC custom- designed microcomputer.
- Easily adjusted balance counterweights on the casting arm.
- Integral pressure-intensifier water pump for connection to an (external water tank not supplied ).
- Reduced machine height for ease of operation and placing flasks on the arm. Machine easily broken down for entry into workshops with reduced access simply by removing four bolts
