ABOUT

Together with our partner CIME S.r.l. (Crescenzi Induction Melting), we supply coreless induction pouring furnaces in combination with our stopper pouring control. There are more than 150 CIME pouring furnaces installed in countries all over the world at the moment. Thanks to their patented design they can be used for all metal grades and is well suited for mixed production. 

TECHNICAL INFORMATION

  • Capacity: 1.500 kg – 25.000 kg
  • Power: 200 – 1.000 kg 
  • Power Efficiency: 0,9 – 1 
  • Overheating up to 100 K/min 

perfect solution for you?

For a profitable and efficient use of the coreless automatic pouring furnace the use case, individual requirements and production properties play a decisive role. The criteria listed below provide a rough guide to check if this system is the optimal solution for you. Please note that these criteria are weighted on a case-by-case basis.

high degree of automation required 100%
need of productivity increase 80%
Irregular iron demand or supply 75%
reduction of magnesium and thermic losses required 100%
Need of constant temperature 100%

Coil made from interchangeable sections

  • Each section with its own cooling, temperature control, and visualiuation on HMI
  • Each section bridgeable in case of damage, no need to stop production because of damaged coil
  • Each section interchangeable during maintenance
  • No brazed joints that could fail

Empty 100%

  • Rapid change of alloy 
  • Turn off power for longer stops 
  • Easy cleaning 

Siphons inside of coil

  • Constant temperature in the siphons
  • More precise pouring temperature 
  • Siphons are easy to clean (possible to overheat for de-slagging)

Possibility to remelt

  • No need to destroy the lining after power outage

Possibility to use nitrogen

  • Less magnesium fadin in ductile iron

Upgrade to automation

Each of our products is designed to be equipped with software, lasers and cameras on request. Upgrade the system to speed up pouring process and work steps to a large extent with less effort at the same time. When talking about automatic pouring, we distinguish between three levels that build on one another. 

The coreless pouring furncae can be easily upgraded at any time in order to start with a simple manual system and convert it to a sophisticated, automated system. By adding special features, it may be possible to significantly increase the production output while reducing the manpower to do it. 

semi-automatic pouring

A solid and constant pouring process for your production.

automatic pouring

Pouring upgrade leading to a fast, independent and accurate process.

intelligent pouring

The high-end solution for an intelligent and a self-learning production.

pour box
The pour box is designed for the installation on any pouring furnace. All sensors, actuator and inoculation units are installed with their mounting brackets on a special designed frame around the pouring basin. This frame also has special insulated cable channels to protect them against heat radiation and ensures a long lifetime. The interface between the pour box and the furnace is the existing flange plate of the furnace. In order to minimize the heat losses, the pour box can be equipped with a lid.
Furnace control
The operation of the pouring furnace is integrated into the pourTECH™ system, using the same operator panel HMI as the rest of the system. Parameters such as switching times, pouring temperature etc. are entered into a special furnace screen. The same screen is used for visualization of any information given by the furnace hardware, such as voltage, current, power, phase-angle, resistance, and reactance. A furnace control within pourTECH™ is always combined with a hardware backup solution to prevent any freezing of the furnace.
Skip Charger
Our skip charger is the perfect addition to every stopper pouring ladle or pouring furnace. It is used to charge the pouring device instead of using a crane or forklift. Instead of taking the risk the operator has to fill the pouring device and could get injured, the skip charger can do the process semi-automatic. This saves time and reduces the risk of accidents dramatically. The transport ladle can either be put on directly to the skip charger or loaded by a roller conveyor.
