VC 12000 V Vacuum Pressure Casting Machine: best pre-conditions for high-quality castings in aluminium and other metals

Aluminiumguss, hergestellt mit VC 12000 V Vakuum-Druck-Gießanlage

The VC 12000 V is available with two different crucible versions: with the standard crucible with 12,000 ccm volume or optionally with an extra large crucible with 25,000 ccm. The VC 12000 V offers 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. This way, foaming of molten metal can be avoided without any melt additives. Overpressure in the melting chamber during and after casting and simultaneous vacuum in the flask chamber optimise form filling especially in filigree or thin-walled areas.

All our large VC machines are now equipped with a new program control system. The casting process is controlled via LCD full text display. Complete casting cycles may be stored for repeatable castings. As the most important innovation, all large VC machines use the vibration technology for improved form filling and casting quality.

Magnesium casting versions

The magnesium casting versions are constructed according to strict safety requirements and guarantee safe and easy casting of magnesium – and of course of many other metals, too.
