VC 3000 V Vacuum Pressure Casting Machine
Overview VC 3000 V Vacuum Pressure Casting Machine
The all-round solution VC 3000 V
With its even greater capacity this system is a particularly versatile solution for the casting of large parts – especially with the optional large vacuum chamber. The VC 3000 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…

VC 3000 V Vacuum Pressure Casting Machine with program control and vibration system: for high-quality castings in aluminium and other metals
VC 1000 V, 3000 V and 12000 V 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. 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.
