CPC (Counter Pressure Casting) Machine
CPC line of machines have been developed for precise control all parameters
of Counter Pressure Casting process and to meet casting manufacturer’s
requirements for efficient production of aluminum castings in permanent,
sand or combined molds. They meet the highest requirements with respect
to mechanical properties, structural strength density, surface smoothness
and dimensional accuracy.
Counter-Pressure Casting Machine - Basic Layout
The design of machines is the simple and reliable concept: rugged vertical
main frame, the top and bottom plates are tied together with four alloy
steel hard chrome plated tie bars. Between those two plates there are
two movable plates, guided on the vertical tie bars.
Top Plate: The top plate carries the main hydraulic cylinder
along with the hydraulic directional valves and safety locking system.
Movable Plate: The movable plate carries the upper mold and
the hydraulic mold ejection system.
Intermediate Plate: The intermediate plate holds the bottom
mold, as well as, hydraulic lock. It can also lift the furnace lid when
Furnace: The machine furnace contains a ceramic crucible, furnace
lid with riser tube, resistive heating element, two thermocouples, and
male power plug (when the machine is used in conjunction with a furnace
Cooling System: Cooling system consist two parts – cooling
of machine and cooling of die.
Cooling of machine provide cooling of seals areas of furnace lid and
intermediate plate and Hydraulic Power unit.
Cooling of the die is capable to cool the die with air or water. Change
of the kind of cooling is done from the control panel and control
is by time, by temperature or by both.
All cooling circuits have individual visual flow indicator , valve
for control of flow and optionally the flow indicator can have an
output signal that is shown to the operator monitor.
