Rapid Moulding System
The RAPID moulding line is a vertical pattern loop system with the primary advantage of a very small foot-print area. Furthermore, since the elevators can store 2 bolsters at the same time, the length of the system is reduced by the length of one station. The footprint area saving is up to 60% when compared to any horizontal loop system.
RAPID vertical loop provides about 20-30 seconds faster cycle times than any conventional loop systems especially with short filling time systems, thanks to its continuous elevators. They operate in one direction only so that the precious return and eject-reload transfer times are saved.
The cycle operation of the system is uninterrupted within the loop making the RAPID up to 20% faster than that of our competitors when using a traditional loop with the same size continuous sand mixer.
Maximum 6 bolsters can be run in the standard machine, 8 and 10 bolster systems are optional.
The standard bolster sizes are 1300 x 1050mm, 1600 x 1250mm and 2000 x 1450mm.
Up to 4 separate patterns can be fixed on a bolster plate at the same time. The maximum mould heights are 425, 500 and 600mm respectively.
Key benefits of the Vertical Moulding Fast Loop (RAPID)
