Japanese Patent JP2003181616
Kind Code:

Abstract:

To provide an apparatus and method for molten metal supply having a short feeding time, in which molten metal does not flow out from a ladle, when supplying molten metal to a diecasting machine.

The apparatus 1 for molten metal supply comprises the ladle 2 housing molten metal, a feeding means feeding molten metal while a position of the ladle 2 is changeably maintained, a position changing means changing the position of the ladle 2, and a servo motor transmitting rotary force to the position changing means. When scooping out a designated amount of molten metal by the ladle 2 in cooperation with the feeding means and position changing means and feeding the molten metal to a molten metal supply position of the diecasting machine, the apparatus provides a control means, which outputs a control signal controlling the position of the ladle 2 to the position changing means in a direction preventing the flow of molten metal from an opening portion 2a of the ladle 2 caused by acceleration and deceleration of the ladle 2.
