PC570 Automated high-pressure casting system
Same great system, but now fully automated!

The PC570 Auto is a fully automated high-pressure casting system capable of producing a full range of solid and hollow cast products on a single machine.

Like the standard PC570, this 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 automatically cast a full range of two-part moulds at the same time including:

  • Tanks

  • Covers

  • Pedestals

  • Basins

  • Squat pans

And many more

A fully automated system for pressure casting

As an Automated machine, the PC570 Auto also includes:

  • Auto mould opening

  • Automatic application of release air

  • Demoulding robot

  • Tooling

  • Guarding

  • Integrated conveyor system

  • Wareboard handling

Production levels from the PC570 casting system

The PC570 machine has been in operation worldwide for over 20 years casting tanks, covers, basins, pedestals, urinals and other two-part moulds.

The fully automatic casting cycle of between 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.

The PC570 machine is supplied as a prefabricated unit including a heated slip tank to minimise the work required for site preparation and installation.

To start casting, the customer simply needs to mount the system on a concrete plinth and connect the relevant services. For ease of use, this machine is automatically demoulded.

  • IMSC, which allows a full range of solid and hollow cast products to be cast on the PC570 at the same time

  • Customer-specific HMI and PLC Control system

  • Optional upgrade; Extended beam length for increased casting capacity

  • Higher rated power pack with a quicker response time

  • Heavy-duty floor grid

  • Skid-mounted skid tank, washing and pump system

  • Slip/waste collection tray

  • Heated water tank
