Trade Fair How Fill Envisions the Future of Casting Technology
At this year's EUROGUSS, the machine and plant manufacturing company Fill presented smart automation solutions for the whole foundry process. The interconnection of processes and automated production equipment result in a robust, highly efficient production system. All production stages are covered in the fields of light alloy casting. From casting, cooling, and decoring to premachining, testing, and finishing.
Downsizing, weight and exhaust gas reduction, CO2 emissions – these are the major issues in modern casting technology. "We optimize the processes and develop new technologies that deliver convincing results and ensure the highest levels of cost-effectiveness and process stability in the harsh foundry environment," explains Thomas Rathner, Head of the Fill Casting Technology Competence Center.
The low pressure caster b low-pressure casting machine can also be used as a basic machine for back-pressure die casting. This innovation is characterized by a larger clamping surface and a longer stroke in a small design. Further benefits include simple handling and ergonomic, service-friendly maintenance. Together with a fully automated shuttle system for changing furnaces and tools, the technology further refined by Fill yields a highly efficient production system.
Another highlight was the presentation of the digitalization. One remarkable step towards Industry 4.0 is the complete networking of machines with the machine workflow software platform and visualization of the product and production data with the newly developed app for iOS and Android operating systems.
