WCM60/2 Pressure Casting System for Sanitaryware
Our pressure casting plant WCM60/2 with increased mold installation space is used for the efficient forming of toilet bowls for so-called rimless and one-piece toilets made of ceramic slip (e.g. vitreous china/VC and fine fire clay/FFC) by hollow or solid casting.
The machine is designed for molds made of porous synthetic material and consisting of four to seven parts. Up to five parts will be brought together by the machine's hydraulic axes with the possibility to insert two additional mold parts into the mold by means of an assistance robot. The articles will be cast in so-called upside-down position.
For the production of box rim toilets, an additional, lower-level pressure casting plant of our WRM60 series will be added to the main plant.
The mold parts will be brought together in a predefined closing sequence before being locked hydraulically. During casting, the closing pressure will be adjusted to the increasing slip pressure inside the mold.
The articles will be removed in a controlled manner and with little deformation by means of a robot. For the production of box rim toilets, the robot will additionally fix the water rim to the body of the toilet.
The molded articles are removed in a controlled and low-deformation procedure by a robot. In the production of WCs with closed water rim, the robot additionally garnishes the water ring on the WC body.
