FMS offer a range of Flood Coating stations including manual, semi-automatic and fully automatic machines that are easily integrated into a range of foundry systems for an efficient mould handling solution.
FMS’ manual Flood Coating stations consist of a simple catchment tray with recirculating pump and tank which enables the customer to re-use excess coating material. This is supplied by a simple operator coating gun.
Semi Automatic Flood Coating
Our semi-automatic hydraulic tilt stations include an inline belt conveyor. The mould is clamped, then hydraulic cylinders raise and tilt the belt, complete with clamped mould, approximately 110 degrees to allow positioning over the catchment tray and fluid recirculating system.
Fully Automatic Flood Coating
FMS’ fully automatic Flood Coating system is the Roll-to-Coat unit which is a rollover type coating machine. The mould is clamped and rotated to a suitable position for flood coating. The catchment tray and coating equipment are separate items and are positioned directly under the Roll-to-Coat unit in a pit (see images below). This unit is suitable for both flask and flask less systems even if they co-exist.
