This versatile piece of equipment is well suited for the production of either:
All products (ingot, T-bar, busbar and extrusion billet) can be produced on the same machine. Each product has a dedicated exit route, downstream of the flying saw.
Provided all exit systems are installed, a product change can be undertaken within one shift, by changing to a different tundish/mould set and loading the new applicable cast recipe on the PC.
The fully continuous HDC process ideally lends itself for automation. All downstream equipment is fully on-line with the casting machine and no additional personnel is required. Sawing, weighing, hard stamping, ink marking, labelling, stacking and strapping is carried out fully automatic.
