Title:
PRODUCTION LINE AND METHOD FOR THE CONTINUOUS PRODUCTION OF CAST PARTS FROM A MOLTEN METAL, IN PARTICULAR A MOLTEN LIGHT ALLOY
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO2005061156
Kind Code:
A8
Abstract:
The invention relates to a production line for the continuous production of cast parts (M) from a molten metal, in particular a molten light alloy. Said line comprises several functional units including a core production unit (2) for producing cast cores, a mould assembly unit (3) for mounting casting moulds (G) that are configured as core packets, a casting unit for casting the molten metal into the casting moulds (G), a cooling unit (5a) for cooling the molten metal that is contained in the respective casting moulds (G) and a demoulding unit (5b) for removing the casting mould (G) from the cast part (M), during which process the mould is destroyed. A production line of this type permits the economic and flexible production of heavy-duty cast parts with complex forms, in particular motor blocks. To achieve this, the successive continuous functional units (2 5b) are directly interconnected by a respective transport unit (12,19) and the rate at which the production line (1) ejects the finished cast parts (M) depends on the rate at which the core manufacture unit (2) delivers the cast cores it has produced.
