PC5/70

PC5/70 High Pressure Casting System

This PC5/70 is a battery pressure casting system capable of producing a full range of solid and hollow cast sanitaryware on a single machine. The standard machine has a nominal five-metre active beam length on which up to 16 single or multi cavity two-part moulds can be hung. Increased beam lengths can be supplied if required for increased output.

With the addition of IMSC this machine can cast a full range of two-part moulds at the same time including; tanks, covers, pedestals, basins, squat pans etc.

Production Levels From The PC5/70 Casting System

This machine has been in operation world wide for over 20 years casting tanks, covers, basins, pedestals, urinals and other two-part moulds.

A fully automatic casting cycle of about 20 to 25 minutes enables over 1000 tanks, 1000 lavatory basins or 2,600 tank covers to be produced per 24 hour day with a single operator.

Full details can be found on the configuration and output tables.

The standard machine utilises a hydraulic closing force of 70 tonnes, but variants with higher closing forces to produce larger pieces can be supplied. The PC5/70 machine is supplied as a prefabricated unit including a heated slip tank to minimise the work required for site preparation and installation. In order to start casting, the customer simply needs to mount the system on a concrete plinth and connect the relevant services. In most cases this machine is manually demoulded but automatic demoulding is an option.
