Updated EMI Matchplate Design

April 21, 2014
EMI Inc.'s matchplate molding machine design detailed, demonstrated.

EMI Inc.'s matchplate molding machine design includes an improved six-piece frame; removable power unit; a removable, pattern spray storage tank that is not integrated with the frame; and a centrally located HMI, on a swive, so the operator is available to work from either side of the machine. The cope lift is integral to the design, which allows a greater variety of pattern plates, and improved guidance for the guide rods. The squeeze head is redesigned to transfer force into themachine frame, not the hopper car, and has a new, upper cope mold ejection system.

More design improvements forcus on the hopper car, filterator, rollover equipment, rollover lift, board feeder, platen, and more.
