Casting on horizontal cold chamber machines
Numerous studies in casting laboratories relate to horizontal cold chamber diecasting machines. One of the problematic areas here is the interaction between casting chamber, plunger and formfilling.
The processes are extremely difficult to measure and record and it is practically impossible to avoid problems – at best they can be minimised.
Problematic areas include:
Deployment of the FFCS sensor
The aim is to be able to measure, register and analyse faults that occur in a certain area with the FFCS sensor and, if need be, to correct the problem by resetting the plunger.
