The Continuous Casting Machines from now on with vacuum or quattro drive
 
More flexibility, lower costs
Indutherm continuous casting machines help you to save production costs.
With only one machine, you can produce your own alloys or semi-finished products in different shapes and sizes in the shortest time, for example:

  • wires or bars in every diameter you need, up to ø 40mm (CC 3000)
  • sheets and strips, e.g. ring production, for stamping and pressing
  • tubes, perfect as basic material for cutting in sections for wedding ring production
  • granulates

 
The main advantages of the Indutherm CC machines:

  • short change-over times for various casting sizes
  • a lot of additional equipment available
  • e.g. diffusion bonding set („sintering”) and granulation tank
  • induction generators with a low frequency tuning for a  thorough mixing of the metal
  • automated inert gas
  • high metal quality, free of porosity

 
All continuous casting machines also available as VCC-versions with vacuum function (pat. pend.)
With the VCC-versions, melting can take place under vacuum or inert gas. This is ideal for alloys containing copper such as red gold or for silver as these materials tend to oxidize easily.
Degasification under vacuum results in a substantially improved – because of the absence of oxidization – semi-finished product.
 
On request: with quattro drive
The CC versions 1000 and 3000 are optionally available with “QUATTRO DRIVE”. That’s the name of the new drawing unit with four instead of only two motor driven feed rolls, which transport the material such as wire, sheet or tube down from the melting chamber.
Thanks to the smooth transport with reduced pressure, the sheeting and tubes produced by this way show nearly none of the otherwise unavoidable marks of transportation.
The need of intense post-processing such as polishing is clearly reduced.
