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 two different polymer concrete Autocaster systems - 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.

 

Standard Features:

The base Autocaster Polymer Concrete machine includes:

  • Choose from two machines - select which machine based on your matrix output needs - up to 100 lb (45kg) per minute matrix production with our standard machine, or up to 250 lb (113kg) per minute output with our higher throughput 250 lb machine!
