Metal Casting Industry
Piston Manufacturing JCR manufactures two types of machines for the metal casting industry, but these machines are often combined into one unit to conserve floor space. The air quench cooling unit moves the newly cast pistons slowly over several air streams cooling them to the required temperature. The Piston Cropper removes the gates from between a cooled set of pistons. The gate is removed by a scrap conveyor, and the pistons are transferred to the next operation, typically by an escape chute. Furnace Loading Systems The Loadmaster Furnace Charging System feeds a programmed amount of metal onto a furnace-feeding conveyor. The metal is supplied from a scrap bin, a pallet of ingots, or a combination of the two sources.
