RotoBowl

The RotoBowl Pressure Casting System

PCL Ceramics has developed a new modular bowl pressure casting system called RotoBowl. This Patented system uses proven PCL bowl casting technology that has been in operation for more than 12 years and brings the next level of flexibility, suitable for open and stuck on rim bowls.

Based on the PCB/570 casting system, a single bowl mould cell has been mounted in a cradle unit capable of rotating the complete mould 140 degrees during the casting process improving both slip filling and draining operations.

Individual casting or complete casting cells (twin module) can be turned on or off as required to suit product output needs without affecting the other casting cells within the system. Each module also incorporates “Total Individual Mould Station Control” (TIMSC) allowing total control of the casting parameters of a mould and therefore a full range of products can be cast at the same time.

This new patented casting system offers a brand new approach to pressure casting more complex bowls and is significantly more flexible than previous high pressure casting systems.

RotoBowl Casting Machine Benefits Include:

  • Variable drain angle for button free bowl casting
  • Increased mould utilisation due to shorter demoulding times
  • Variable fill angle to eliminate slip-meet and other filling issues
  • Reduced mould inventory requirements due to higher output rate per mould
  • Suitable for three-piece, four-piece, five-piece, open and stuck on box rim bowls
  • Simple compact construction with automatic demoulding, hole forming/punching and rim to body assembly

Key Features of the RotoBowl system:

  • Single casting cell or twin casting cells per module
  • Four or five-part open or stuck on rim bowl casting
  • 140-degree rotation for improved slip filling and drainage
  • Button-free casting
  • Fully automatic system
  • Approximately 6M x 6M footprint for twin system
  • Suitable for complex bowl casting

Typical Casting Outputs of the RotoBowl System:

  • Four or five-part open rim. 29,018 Pieces per year, single cell
  • Four or five-part open rim. 58,036 Pieces per year, twin cell
  • Four or five-part stuck-on rim. 26,600 Pieces per year, single cell
  • Four or five-part stuck-on rim. 53,200 Pieces per year, twin cell

PCB5/70

Our bowl machine offers an economic pressure casting system for WC bowls. A novel mould design allows up to eight bowl moulds to be mounted onto a single machine. This ensures that all the benefits of pressure casting are applied giving an economical solution to high volume bowl production whilst still providing sufficient flexibility for low volume products.

High Pressure Casting Machines

Two-Part

Our two-part mould casting machine range produces a full range of sanitaryware pieces. The PC5/70 and PC120 multi-mould overhead beam systems can cast items in both vitreous and fine fireclay ranging from small wash basins to large shower trays.

Upgrades

PCL can supply a number of machine upgrades to our casting systems to increase their flexibility and further improve productivity and ease of use.

Custom-Built

In addition to our standard range of machines PCL can design and build a machine to suit your specific casting requirements to an agreed specification.
