BDW120H6 Battery Pressure Casting Plant for Sanitaryware

Our pressure casting plant BDW120 H6 is used for the efficient forming of washstands, columns, shower tubs, squat toilets, water tanks and kitchen sinks made of ceramic slip (e.g. vitreous china/VC and fine fire clay/FFC) by hollow or solid casting.

The BDW120 H6 is designed for parallel operation of six pressure casting molds made of porous synthetic material with the six molds being capable of being operated fully independently regarding their technologies. This feature makes it possible to produce up to six different articles in one cycle.

Closing force and installation space are well-suited to the production both of large articles in two-part, single-cavity molds and of smaller articles in double-cavity molds.

The pressure casting molds will be brought together in vertical position before being locked hydraulically. During casting, two hydraulic short-stroke cylinders will adjust the closing pressure to the increasing slip pressure inside the mold. Once the machine starts to open, electrical geared motors will turn the clamping platens into horizontal position so that the articles can be removed.

All cast articles will be put down safely at the same time either on transfer trolleys or on other automated removal devices while keeping their horizontal position.
