DG180 Pressure Casting System for Sanitaryware

Our pressure casting plant DG180 is used for the efficient forming of large sanitary ware articles such as double washbasins, kitchen sinks and shower tubs made of ceramic slip (e.g. vitreous china/VC and fine fire clay/FFC) by hollow or solid casting.

The DG180 is designed for pressure casting molds made of porous synthetic material and consisting of two parts. In addition, the machine can be equipped with a wedge pulling device for a third mold part, e.g., for forming fastening holes in the article.

The high closing force and the ample installation space are well-suited to the production both of large articles in two-part, single-cavity molds and of smaller articles such as squat toilets, water tanks or lids in molds of up to four cavities.

The pressure casting molds will be brought together automatically in vertical position before being locked hydraulically. During casting, the closing pressure will be adjusted to the increasing slip pressure inside the mold.

The cast articles can be removed either in vertical or in horizontal position. For removal in horizontal position, the movable clamping platen will be turned to the required position.
