Automatic Piston Casting Machine: D&A 201

Automatic Piston Casting Machine performs a gravity casting process in permanent water-cooled moulds. Mould parts and cores are automatically separated from the product after solidification. A robot manipulator transfers  product to a cooling station where it is cooled by virtue of air and/or water currents. The casting machine is suitable for casting double Aluminium pistons of φ65 mm ~ φ92 mm with a core distance of 150 mm.
