All in line
The VIBRA-DRUM sand casting conditioner produces homogenized return sand for Eisengiesserei Baumgarte in Bielefeld Germany, and cleaner castings leave the unit. The cooling of the castings is expedited by a moisture addition system. The previously separated shake-out and cooling processes often would require certain castings to be held off-line, to allow adequate cooling before workers were able to handle them.
The gentle tumbling action of sand and castings provides a cushioning effect, making it an ideal approach for unmolding even the most delicate of castings.
Sand process optimization
General Kinematics’ VIBRA-DRUM system optimizes processing of castings and sand, and optimizes production thanks to its energy-efficient two-mass principle.
