Vertical Continuous Casting Machine
We introduce ourselves as a leading manufacturer of Vertical Continuous Casting Machine For Copper in the shape of rods, strips & tubes directly from scrap or virgin copper (Cathode) & copper based alloys including precious alloys. These machines are specially suitable for smaller diameter rods for wire rod industry.
The feed metal in the form of swarf, turning, borings, chips etc of the alloy are fed from the top into a graphite crucible which has two portions & is heated by graphite heating elements. It is a resistance heated furnace. At the top of the crucible a super - cooler assembly, along with graphite die, is fixed vertically keeping the die immersed in molten metal. The super cooler is cooled by re-circulation of water. The molten metal enters the die & gets solidified in the shape of die bore. The solidified metal is continuously withdrawn at very fast speed with the help of withdrawal unit driven by SERVO motor, coupled with gear box.there by giving a continuous length of the casting in the shape of rod strip or tube.
