NIV Introduces New Casting Machine
December 15, 2003
The ADM casting machine from NIV Casting, a unit of the Sacmi Group, is ideal for the casting of sanitaryware pieces. The machine is a multi-function single mold piece of equipment with a high level of load versatility and fast changeover operations, combining excellent production capacity with the ability to use many different kinds of programs. The machine has two ellipsoid crossbeams -- one fixed, and one mobile and installed on guide rails -- which are supported from below. This is the classic set-up for a high-pressure (up to 15 bar) single mold casting machine with total working clearance. It is able to clamp molds with a force that can reach 240 tons (the maximum so far achieved in the industry) in the largest versions. This machine is available in four versions featuring 60-, 120-, 180- or 240-ton clamping force.
