Automatic Piston Casting Machine

This machine automates the piston casting procedure in a production Cell, and it is designed and implemented based on a contract with Iran Piston making Co. Tabriz, Iran. The Casting machine controlles the production of the pistons in a gravity casting procedure, and it fully automates the cooling and production sequence through a PLC controller. It Performs a gravity casting process in permanent water-cooled moulds. Mould parts and cores are automatically separated from the product after solidification. A robot manipulator transfers   product to a cooling station where it is cooled by virtue of air and/or water currents. The casting machine is suitable for casting double Aluminium pistons of φ65 mm ~ φ92 mm with a core distance of 150 m.
