Design Features / Models SCB-9 / SCB-10

Shalco’s “Conveymatic” Models SCB-9 / SCB-10 Shell Core Machines are designed for fast, continuous production runs – the ultimate for delivering precise, uniform, shell cores consistently in large or small quantities with the least amount of physical or mechanical interruption.

Versatile production of large or small cores. Up to six core boxes may be mounted in the 30” wide oven plate area. Boxes 5”, 7 ½”, 10” and 15” wide, 8” or 10” high, 6” across the parting line, may be used in 24 different arrangements. A simple cam lock permits easy installation or replacement of core boxes to meet any production requirement. Alloyed cast-iron box blanks, machined and ground to the above dimensions are available. Matching pin ejectors and blow plates are also available.

The Shalco Models SCB-9 / SCB-10 produce a completely automatic, continuous flow of shell cores, automatically ejected onto a belt conveyor and can make many cores of different designs, simultaneously.

The optional Automatic Blow off and Spray Unit automatically cleans the core box by means of compressed air and will dispense a silicone release agent onto the parting surface of the core box.

Pneumatic cylinders and valve for precision controls

Metallic cushion take away belt receives automatically ejected cores. (Optional flexpin conveyor belt – for extremely fragile cores.)

Multiple core boxes – up to six different cores can be produced simultaneously.
