Autocaster Ultra/PC (Polymer Concrete) Continuous Casting System Print

Developed specifically for Polymer Concrete manufacturing applications.

autocasterultrapc500

PolyConcCast175p

The Autocaster Ultra/PC (Polymer Concrete) version of a continuous casting machine automates the production of polymer concrete matrix for cast polymer concrete manufacturing of a variety of durable cast products.

 

At left: Autocaster Ultra/PC continuous casting system is shown at left, equipped with optional fiberglass strand chopper.

 

Now choose from three different polymer concrete Autocaster models - depending on your needs!

Replacing manual mixing with the Autocaster can significantly increase productivity, cut material costs and improve quality - all leading to increased profits for the manufacturer. Our many years of experience with continuous casting machines and cast polymer manufacturing equipment have led to innovative improvements that have been incorporated into the Autocaster continuous casting machine product line.

Autocaster Ultra/PC (Polymer Concrete) Continuous Casting System - 250 - 500 lb (115 - 225 kg) per minute output - CALL

 

 
Options:
  • Additional Standard (Powder) Filler Metering Hopper – Three metering hoppers are standard, but add up to 3 more with this upgrade. Mix and match between powder and aggregate filler requirements. Can be configured with fewer than three as well - #30ACFH

  • Add additional Base Color - One Base Color is included in the standard configuration, but you can add additional base colors with this option. To add 1 additional Base Color (#CMBCS-1C), to add 2-Colors (#CMBCS-2C), to add 3-Colors (#CMBCS-3C)

  • Fiberglass Strand Chopper - Reinforce your cast part with this automatic Fiberglass strand chopper system. Automatically cuts 1-1/2” strands of fiberglass from a roll, and adds it to your matrix. Choose full or partial speed motor - #700CA

  • Expanded Resin Heating Option - In cold climates, or given particular matrix/resin percentages, we recommend the expanded inline resin heater option - #163500

  • Cobalt Promoter System – Use of a promoted resin is highly recommended. If using an unpromoted resin, then the Cobalt Promoter System Option is required - #151000

  • Remote Batch Display – matrix batch meter with run-time reset - #162966

  • Remote Operator Interface Terminal (OIT) – Replaces the standard arm-mounted control panel with a remotely located pedestal-mounted OIT. This also removes the standard arm and OIT from the machine - #1500ACB-R
