Applications

Toggle free high pressure die casting machines are ideal for a diverse complex casting production and when the die is frequently changed. Some applications include:

Automotive parts: Engine blocks, gearboxes, oil sumps, engine support, structural parts (battery housing, car roof, shot tower, pillars).

Other industries: Radiators for household heating, escalator steps, chassis and components for electronic devices, telecommunication components, household appliances, electric motors

Reliable, consistent, efficient: high-quality aluminium castings made easy

 

 

 

Available as individual machines or supplied as part of a fully automated, integrated cell, Italpresse Gauss’ digitally enabled TF machines make consistent casting quality simple.

Our two platen TF machines optimize every aspect of casting, from minimizing maintenance and space requirements to improving shot accuracy and die closure

A solid approach to scrap reduction

What happens when you combine a rigidly constructed closing unit, the hardest certified alloy steel platens in the industry, well equalized tie bar loads, massive closing forces, and a hydraulic locking system able to compensate for any geometrical imperfections of the die or thermal expansions?

Rock-steady production, minimized die distortion and low scrap rates.

Powerful shot precision for ultimate repeatability

All our TF machines feature a SC 3.o shot end system with real time injection control. The shot control software reacts quickly to real-time data on melt flow into the die, adjusting the speed of the piston as required to guarantee uniform casting quality.

The system also uses flexible pipes to avoid breakages under high pressure and is designed to offer easy access to parts that require maintenance, ensuring leaner maintenance processes and increased machine uptime.

Digitally enabled to deliver more benefits

Want our expert engineering team to remotely examine your machine’s control system, install an upgrade, or take a look at a real-time video stream of a technical issue? No problem.Our machines are digitally enabled to support this.

Additionally, all our new machines come installed with Norigate, gateway technology that can, , once activated, collect, timestamp, and encrypts data from any machine it is connected to before sending it to the cloud. Together with our Monitizer solutions suite, this unlocks a range of process optimizing capabilities to help you reduce scrap, improve productivity and increase profit.

Designed for Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)

Because our TF machines deliver massive closing forces with only two platens ,they are rigid and more compact than die casting machines with toggle. They save precious space. They also save time and effort. Removing the toggle minimizes maintenance requirements. Parts are all designed to be long-life and those components that do require more regular attention are deliberately easy to access to keep processes lean.
