XYZ Mechanized Casting Table (MCT) Print

The XYZ Mechanized Casting Table is designed for use with Gruber's Autocaster™ Continuous Casting Systems (or other continuous casting systems), making the process of positioning the mold vertically under the Autocaster much simpler.

MCT-600

 

Three standard models:

•  15’  (X,Y and Z axis)

•  15’  (X and Y axis only)

•  15’  (X axis only)

 

 


 


The table makes the process of casting small to large molds simpler by automating vertical movement of the mold to properly position it under the Autocaster so that matrix can easily pour down into the mold.

Variable speed motorized movement in all directions - side/side (X), back/forth (XY) and up/down (Z) allows an operator to position a mold precisely where its needed during casting. The Mechanized Casting Table (MCT) easily handles the smallest to the largest of molds - from small modular to large panel molds.  With the built-in Z-Drive, tubs can be placed in the proper position for casting. The removable hand-held motion control unit allows the operator to walk to either end of the cart while still controlling the motion.

For tub molds, the cart is lowered from the standard 28” height down to 20” to allow a tub mold to fit underneath the Autocaster barrel. It can then be raised back up to the original 28” height so the mold can be transferred to a conveyor and move down the line. The unit comes standard with an electric vibration system.


Technical Description

X and Y motion is controlled through inverter driven AC motors (explosion proof available) couple to fixed ratio transmissions. Heavy-duty roller chain on the x-axis handles molds with track or flat bottoms. Posi-traction through a solid axle connected to V-Groove wheels provides Y motion for the cart on V-Track, with travel limited only by the length of the track and electrical wire followers. Height control is obtained through an AC motor driving an enclosed precision ball screw.
User-friendly operator controls are mounted on an extension from the front of the cart. The control panel includes a keyed control lockout, emergency stop, vibrator switch and wired remote. Controls on the wired remote include a joystick for X and Y motion, control for Z height (X, Y and Z model only), and an additional emergency stop switch. The remote provides 10’ (ten foot) travel from the main control panel.
