VTC 200 V vacuum/pressure casting machine featuring vibration technology
With the VTC 200, INDUTHERM offers an extremely versatile casting machine suitable for a wide range of applications – and a number of options that were considered mutually incompatible up to now. Thus, while the VTC 200 V was originally designed as a high-temperature casting machine for casting steel, palladium, platinum etc. (max. 2,000 °C), large flasks also make it suitable for economically producing castings in gold, sliver, copper, aluminium and other materials.
The machine combines a dual-chamber differential pressure system with a tilting mechanism. The casting process is achieved by rotating the entire melting-casting unit by 90°. One benefit of the tilting system is the use of economically priced graphite or ceramic crucibles (without holes and sealing rods), these tend to have a longer service life. Some alloys, such as copper beryllium, quickly cause crucibles with holes and sealing rods to become untight and therefore useless, and for this reason, many casters have so far processed such alloys only in open systems – which means they can't choose to optimise the process with overpressure or vacuum. With the VTC 200 V, these handicaps no longer apply.
