"Psd" – Stopper control device
The maximum stroke of the system is 450mm; in the normal operating mode (Production) the stroke is limited to 100 mm. The stopper will be lift of 450mm for maintenance operation as well as stopper change , channel cleaning, etc. (not in production).
The pouring stopper rod control can be automatically operated with Auto Teach modality. It is also possible to use the manual modality to control of the stopper rod. This condition is mainly used for the set-up and for the coupling Bush-Stopper adaptation.
"PIC" – Digital camera for automatic pouring control
The PIC digital camera is a device that directly commands the stopper and pilot his opening/closing in order to have a better pouring, without risk of empty flask or slow pouring or over filling of the sprue cup.
Each camera is installed in a special enclosure, designed by Progelta equipped with VORTEX cooler device and thermocouple for temperature monitoring.
In-stream inoculation device
Temperature measurement and management
Burner for spouts pre-heating
It shall also ensure the maintenance of temperature during the breaks of production.
