With seven different versions from 550 to 3150kg capacity, the program provides for dosing furnaces of Foundry4 a high flexibility for use in die - and gravity casting.
The heating by SIC heating elements ensures low energy consumption at high service life. Compared to ladle furnaces systems, energy savings of up to 60% and more can be achieved.
The dosing of the liquid metal takes place via the application of compressed air of the entire interior furnace chamber, through a ceramic riser tube, the liquid metal is fed through a feed channel into the shot sleeve of the die casting machine or in a gravity mould.
The refilling is taken place exclusively with liquid metal and because of the specific design of the refilling device virtually with no contamination of the metal. The refilling is possible during dosing and takes place due to a built in the controller correction process without a change of the dosing quantity.
A generously sized cleaning aperture with pivoting cleaning door allows easy cleaning of the interior furnace chamber.
As a control a PLC control (made by Siemens type S7-300) is used, which activates the pneumatic actuators. High dosing precision, shortest dosing cycle times and a synchronized timing with the machine are guaranteed by the perfect interaction of technical components. Operation is via a 12" touch display.
The use of premium materials, modern insulating materials and high-quality refractory materials provides a high level of operational life expectancy with only little need for spare parts and maintenance. The wear and spare parts are compatible with many parts from other manufacturers of dosing furnaces.
