TCE in Class B

Details

    TCE in Class B are vacuum centrifugal casting machine:

    • robust and easy to use
    • designed for small and medium casting laboratories.
    • suited for steel, nonferrous and precious metals, including platinum, palladium.
    • best where the price of the machines is an important factor and where no reactive metals are involved.

    Regarding the mold size and crucible capacity, you can cast up to 8 kg steel and use flasks up to 250 mm in diameter and 380 mm in length.
    We may also develop larger machines under customized specifications for what concerns crucible capacity and flask mould size. In case you are interested in getting a quotation for non-standard casting machine do not hesitate to send us your technical specifications.

Gas Wash Procedure

  • Crucible and mould loading operation introduces oxygen
  • The Gas Wash Purge procedure removes the oxygen (1) in a very fast and efficient way and then refills back the chambers with Argon, Nitrogen or Helium gas (2)

Melting

  • Advanced Self Tuning thermoregulation (AST™) with exact temperature control of the molten alloys
  • Accurate control of the temperature with a proprietary narrow band optical pyrometer or with rotating thermocouple
  • Medium frequency induction heating stirs the melted alloy and leads to a perfect homogeneity
  • Magnetic field frequency has been studied for best coupling and energy transfer

Injection and Compression

  • When the charge is molten, the coil is retracted and the arm starts to spin.
  • During the spinning the metal gets out from the crucible and enters the flask.
  • Rotational speed profile, which controls the injection rate, can be regulated digitally for a consistent and reliable mould filling.
  • The final speed will compress the tree during the solidification phase to reduce shrinkage porosity.

Tree protection after casting

  • After the solidification phase, the flask cools down in a protective atmosphere to avoid oxidation.
  • A blinking lamp will signal the operator that the cycle has ended and the flask can be removed
