The DAFM-SD is a machine for the automatic manufacture of medium and large sized moulds. It is equipped with a pattern turntable and produces cope and drag boxes in sequence. The mould boxes are pushed through the machine in line. For filling with sand, an empty mould box lying on its pattern plate is moved in front of the machine in a swing movement. This allows manual intervention in the open mould. Simultaneously, a box filled with sand enters the machine. The box is raised, compacted and, when the pattern is lowered, re-turned to the mould box line.
The DAFM-SD can be used on moulding lines of the most varied degrees of mechanisation and up to and improving automatic moulding lines.
