High pressure casting, a definitive choice

Australian firm Caroma retires its last plaster moulds in favour of Sacmi technology

After more than a century of corporate history, Caroma Dorf has shut down operations with plaster moulds, definitively replacing them with higher-performance Sacmi resin moulds able to operate at a pressure of 15 bar. A member company of the Australian industrial-financial giant GWA Intern. Ltd, which generated sales of almost 500 million Euros in 2009, Caroma has now inaugurated, at its Sydney plant - one of the world’s most modern – an ALS 150 system, which features robotised de-moulding and LGV (laser-guided vehicle) piece transfer.

The last items to be converted to high pressure casting – thus making plaster moulds a thing of the past forever – were the ceramic supports used to support and compensate for the shrinkage of large shrouded WCs. Another key feature is the high automation level of the production cycle, which includes a 90° drying station: in the current configuration, in fact, actual piece handling is only required when the supports are loaded on the tunnel kilns cars.

The start up of the ALS 150 casting system is only the very latest episode in what is a long-standing partnership between Caroma and Sacmi.
In total 17 Sacmi high pressure casting machines for Vitreous China products are currently being used by the Australian producer, the AVE, AVM and ADM models now being joined by the ALS.
This is a major step in business relations between Sacmi and Caroma: established over 15 years ago, that partnership has gone from strength to strength thanks to the success of the many projects completed together.
