Core-shooter machines for Cold Box process, with either continuous cycle or automatic cycle. Sand capacities range from 5 to 150 liters. Core shooters operate vertical, horizontal or universal (four sides) parting; depending on the core parts. The machines have integral gas generator for amine.


Core-shooter machines for Shell (Croning) Process, for core and mould production using fix, roll over or rocking sand filling methods. Shell core shooters are used to make hollow cores. The core boxes rotate 180° after the shooting to drain the sand out of core box. Heating is optional by gas or electric.


After casting and cooling down, casting pieces needs to be departed from feeders and runners. Bulk production requires fast degating in process flow in order to avoid bottle necks. Hydraulic wedge feeder breaker allows to cut runners from the ductile iron casting pieces in a shorter time compared to cutting or using manual methods. System consist a special hydraulic unit which powers a scissor type of wedge cutter. Wedge feeder breaker has a hydraulic piston and durable jaws which goes between casting piece and feeder. Operating force is applied quickly to remove feeder from the part itself. Jaw types and dimensions are in a wide range and chosen according to cast cluster. Operation can be done on the floor or over the conveyor belt in bulk productions.
