Indutherm VC 3000 V
Available from Blue Power Casting Systems
The INDUTHERM VC 3000 V is a vacuum pressure casting machine for high precision castings according to the lost wax process.
Within Indutherm’s product range the VC 3000 V is one of the larger machines and is mostly used for casting of components in aluminium alloys. The VC 3000 V offers the best pre-condition for high quality casting: the hydrogen content of Al-alloys may be adjusted by regulation of 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 the form filling especially in filigree or thin-walled areas. Additionally, the form filling is even more improved by the Indutherm vibration system. INDUTHERM CASTING SYSTEMS developed the vibration system a few years ago especially for precious metal fine casting, and numerous trials have borne witness to significant improvements in casting quality: better mold filling (especially with delicate parts), much reduced porosity, finer grain structure and hence substantially better elasticity and reprocessing properties in casting products, better and, most importantly, more consistent density in all tested alloys and test molds. But more impressive than all the laboratory analyses were the increases in productivity, as confirmed by users in everyday casting use: the post-production time savings were valued at around 25%.
