Sacmi recently announced it has supplied a multi-mold ADS 150 pressure casting system to the Portuguese company Sanindusa. The system is reportedly able to produce items such as kitchen sinks measuring up to 1500 x 700 mm and shower trays as large as 1200 x 900 mm.

Key features include the following.

  • New mold holder carriages that are reportedly easily adaptable to moulds of different shapes and sizes, allowing the latter to be changed over quickly
  • A laser-guided mold positioning system, which can simplify the mould changeover procedure
  • Models requiring horizontal or vertical de-molding can reportedly be produced simultaneously
  • De-molded pieces can be set down on both the visible side and underside
  • De-molding is executed by a robot mounted on an eccentric, reportedly eliminating the need for costly slides and complex maintenance tasks
  • De-molded pieces can be deposited directly on the dryer cars bother vertically and horizontally
