Any exchange cart that moves, transfers or positions molds in a production line. Note: This category includes both Exchange Carts and the Casting Tables (Mechanized Casting Table (aka "MCT").
Transfer molds to and from elevated or multi-level conveyor systems. Use of these carts with a multi-level conveyor either for storage or production can dramatically reduce storage space required in a typical cultured marble plant.
The Elevating/Vibrating/Transversing Casting (EVTC) Exchange Cart is generally installed on the production conveyor line, directly under a casting machine (such as our Autocaster continuous casting machine). When a tall/deep mold (such as a bathtub mold) is ready for mold filling, the EVTC cart can be lowered to reduce the lip height of the mold, making it easier and more convenient for the casting machine operator to fill the mold. This casting cart also includes vibration as well.
Once casting is complete, the cart is raised back to its normal conveyor height, where the filled mold can then continue down the production conveyor line for demolding, etc.
Precise X,Y,Z motion control for mold positioning during casting with automated casting machines such as Gruber’s Autocaster continuous casting system.
The Ball Cart allows repositioning and height adjustments of molds traveling down your conveyor line to the casting machine or batch mixer.
