Outstanding features of the Hunger vertical casting cylinders are, the in advance calculated high bending resistance under eccentric load initiation, an extremely precise anti-rotation device for the entire stroke, the wear resistant piston rod coating Ceraplate or the Hunger DFE
seal and guiding elements for a stick-slip-free casting movement. This generation of modern casting cylinders corresponds with the special requirements of new aluminium casting plants planned for high production capacities.
Beside the vertical casting cylinders, furnace tilting, door, locking and pouring spout cylinders, the appropriate hydraulic power packs and controls also belong to our scope of supply.
One of the main equipment features of the Hunger casting cylinders is the integrated anti-rotation protection over the entire stroke, which is available for single and double acting cylinders.
The extremely stiff piston rod guidance in the cylinder head ensure a constant guiding length over the stroke.
For the increase of the bending and anti-rotation resistance, the head guidance is additionally being supported by a piston guidance.
Furthermore, low friction seal and guiding elements of plastic compound-construction ensure a stickslip-free movement.
The vertical casting cylinders, furnace tilting, door and locking & pouring spout cylinders are manufacured and provided according to the main function. The optimal hydraulic power pack and control are achieved accordingly.
