We supply a range of ceramic core production equipment from state-of-the-art material mixing systems right through to core finishing equipment.
As well as supplying equipment we also supply every aspect of the technology required to successfully run these processes.
Our ceramic core material mixers start with a load capacity of 50 kg, each mixing system will be optimised to meet your material and mixing requirements. Our mixers are designed to deliver optimised material performance free of air entrapment and contamination.
Our holding pots are ideal for keeping your ceramic core material stable, all of our holding pots are equipped with vacuum and continuous agitation capability. Material is then easily transferred from the holding pot to your injection moulding machine.
There is significant opportunity for customisation when it comes to our range of injection moulding machines. Medium pressure to high pressure, 6 tons to 300 tons the possibilities are huge. Did you know that a single injection machine is capable of generating £1.5M in ceramic cores per annum.
As well as our stand alone automatic injection moulding machines we also supply fully automated ceramic core production cells that include and injection machine and robotic pick and place systems. The system can also be optimised to include 3D scanning and sprue removal. Automated ceramic core injection is proven to deliver double digit yield and productivity improvements.
We supply cutting edge temperature control units that allow users to tightly control and monitor the temperatures of both injection moulding tooling, reformers and injection machine plattens, each of our systems delivers temperature control to ± 0.5 °C
All of our kilns are built to order and are fully optimised for process performance, operator safety and maximum productivity. Sizes range from lab size batch kilns to full continuous tunnel kilns. Every kiln is tested and throughly inspected prior to shipping. We also supply a range of kiln furniture and firing media to get you started.
When working with powders operator safety is paramount, our saggar unpack booths are ideal for the safe, reliable and efficient unpacking of saggers post firing. All our systems are equipped with extraction fans, filters and sealed LED lighting.
Penetrant inspection is used to identify ceramic core surface defects. Our inspection system is semi-automated that allows multiple parts to be dipped and inspected at the same time increasing efficiency by up to 50%.
Our semi-automatic finishing drills give your operators complete control over the ceramic core finishing process, with fully adjustable speeds and pedal operation you can look forward to precise finishing and a low maintenance piece of equipment, a key piece of ceramic core process technology.
Each of our CNC machines are built to order, designed around your product range and output requirements. We supply multi head table top systems capable of finishing 6 cores during one machining cycle right through to 5 axis machines capable of finishing very large complex parts.
The length of a ceramic core is very often a key dimensional characteristic that needs to be held to very tight tolerances in order to deliver the required results during casting production, using a bespoke cutting system allows the udder to maintain very tight dimensions results. Each our systems are design around your product portfolio and dimensional requirements.
We supply a range of optical CMM's including bridge gantry, horizontal arm and Optical CMM's, each machine is tailored to your product portfolio, customer reporting requirements and most importantly the operating environment. We also support with CMM programming.
We supply a diverse range of specialist equipment for the 3D measurement of ceramic cores ranging from a few mm up to ceramic cores of 1000 mm in length. Our 3D measurement solutions provide a range of measuring tasks from simple 3D scanning through to full colour mapping to CAD.
The ceramic core impregnation process is critical to product performance. It is vital to ensure this process is performed correctly as operated incorrectly can lead to drastic differences in part properties. Our systems are designed to not only optimise product performance but also to ensure operator comfort and safety.
Ovens are commonly used within the ceramic core manufacturing process for several reasons. Our ovens can be produced with virtually any shape or configuration. Temperature ranges are between 25°C through to 800°C. Each of our ovens can be heated by Natural gas or LPG, Electricity or Oil.
Our wax applicator is a unique system that allows users to apply wax to to ceramic cores in a consistent and controlled manner, ideal for replacing the old fashioned eyedroppers and tins of melted wax with a process that is precise, consistent, safe and efficient.
Our outstanding bench microscopes really excel in the low magnification range for very detailed inspection of ceramic cores. Patented optical technology allows operators to sit more comfortably, wear glasses and have freedom of head movement. The systems also allow for digital image capture ideal for quality assurance records and operator training.
Our CDS-50P ceramic core leaching autoclave provides the ideal solution for the safe and reliable removal of ceramic cores from investment castings. The CDS-50P allows for the removal of ceramic core material in the shortest possible time with no risk to the cast component. All units are PLC controlled and operated via a HMI touch screen.
Complete process instructions from start to finish, everything you need to know and understand in order to manufacture a consistent ceramic core material.
Injection moulding process technology and instructions, includes optimised settings based on part size, design and complexity.
There are a number of different firing programs available based on material selection, part size and tolerance.
We supply a complete process training document for the safe, reliable and consistent unpacking of saggers post firing.
We provide you with the latest technology in terms of CNC systems for your ceramic core process, not only do we provide the machine but we also provide training on programming and fixture design.
The finishing of ceramic cores requires dedication and skills something that is normally developed over a number of years, through the use of our process guides this time can be reduced by up to 60%.
Impregnation and the coating of ceramic cores is a key element of ceramic core process technology, we provide all the required process settings and technology for the consistent impregnation and coating of ceramic cores.
Ceramic core waxing is a skill that is developed over time, we have created process guides and training packs that cut this learning curve significantly.
"Quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten" Ensuring you have a robust inspection process is critical for several reasons. We supply a full set of process instructions to cover all core complexitys.
