VC series | Vacuum Pressure Casting Machines

The VC series Vacuum Pressure Casting Machines – a thoroughly thought-through concept with the finest details…

VC 650 Castings…forms the basis of the technological advances made in our VC machines guaranteeing optimum casting results whatever class of machine you opt for.

 

Below are a few examples of the additional features offered by Indutherm machines:

Automatic inert gas or vacuum in the melting chamber…HSC-Tree-Filigranschmuck

…to avoid undesired oxidization or the formation of inclusions during melting, particularly important when casting alloys containing copper.

The special “oxidation-reduced casting“ system…
eliminates the danger of oxidation while the flask is cooling down.

The Turbo Pressure function optimizes the casting of very small and filigree objects. For the production of jewellery it guarantees perfect results when casting with stones. Turbo Pressure allows a precisely defined pressure to be achieved rapidly. For all program-controlled VC models, depending on the selected program the Turbo Pressure will start automatically exactly at the required time.

More user control, if required

The integrated data printer (optional for VC 500) records the para meters of every casting (ISO 9001).
All machines with an induction generator can be remotely serviced via a GSM modem. The GSM modem enables Indutherm to remotely monitor and, if necessary, modify important parameters. This allows many potential operational disturbances to be detected in advance and hence avoided. If the machine isn’t working properly or a difficult casting procedure is being carried out, we can remotely provide quick and straightforward assistance.

Vacuum Pressure Casting MachinesHighest levels of safety for certified production

The digital or program control of our machines means we can ensure a high level of safety i.e. the user can guarantee an ISO certified casting process.

Flask temperature measurement

Until recently flasks with incorrect or different temperatures were a safety risk. During casting of very small or delicate parts the temperature of the flask is of upmost importance. The measurement of the flask temperature (standard for machines from VC 500D onwards) is an important feature with regards to safety. The temperature of the flask can be monitored to within one degree accuracy.

VC 400 Vacuum Pressure Casting Machine

The ideal machine for smaller companies…

…which produce moderate quantities but require considerably more capacity than that offered by the MC machines. Often, experienced casters are not particularly interested in automated functions or program control, and they can achieve the same quality with the VC 400 machine as with more advanced ones.

Its induction generator guarantees a fast heat-up and a thorough mixing of the molten metal by inductive bath movement.

The entry into the class of fully automatic casting machines

Constructed on base of the VC 400, the VC 450 is equipped with a completely new generator and a program control system with LCD display.
With help of the step-by-step display information and many automatic functions the handling of the machine is very easy even for less experienced users. The program control for 20 different casting cycles allows reproducible and consistent casting results.

VC500

VC 500 Vacuum Pressure Casting Machine

Semi-automatic casting machine for larger production quantities

For larger production quantities with continuous casting operation, greater performance (shorter casting times) with even larger crucibles and flask capacities (flasks up to 160 mmm ø/400 mm H) is important. The high maximum temperature of 1600°C extends the possible range of alloys. Temperature measurements in both the crucible and the flask mean the temperature limits are strictly adhered to. If alloys are changed frequently, 16 different temperature programs simplify working procedures.
The optional data printer records all the parameters of each casting (ISO 9001).

VC 1000 V Vacuum Pressure Casting Machine

For casting of larger parts

With a flask size of Ø 250 mm x H 500 mm the VC 1000 V is the smallest of the large volume VC series machines. VC 1000 V, VC 3000 V and VC 12000 V are always the first choice for casting of large parts with complicated geometry or when the number of pieces is not large enough for die-cast production. They offer the best pre-conditions for high quality castings in aluminium: the hydrogen content of aluminium alloys may be adjusted by regulating the vacuum during melting…
