CATA 2 is a software program for mould setting times acting on catalyst feeding during the mixing process. CATA 2 balances the inlet of two catalysts with different strength according to sand temperature. ACCU PUMP is a software program to maintain and guarantee a constant flow of binders in to the mixing trough.

Fast Loop Moulding Area

Fast Loop Moulding Area is a completely automated for Furan Moulding, PLC controlled “NO BAKE” Molding System, supplied by M/S IMF Italy, consists of Fast loop powerized roller conveyors, vibrating compaction table, transfer cars, orthogonal turn table and Roll over Stripping machine, Pre-Drying of mould before painting by Electrical Infra-red oven, Guided handler manipulating painting station, Gas fired post drying oven and a crane suspended manipulator for closing the moulds. Alphaset Hand moulding is semi-Automized.

  • Closing station - Manual Hydraulic handler

Infra-Red Drying Oven

Infra-red drying oven is used to dry the mould after stripping. The infra-red radiation is produced by special short wave infra-red (SWIR) emitters. The power of the emitters in the oven can be varied instantaneously and the radiation timing can be changed according to the type of mould.

Mould Painting Station

The Mould Painting Station consists of a Guide handler manipulator that picks up the flask/ mould from the belt conveyor, lifts, rotates, moves it sideways to present in front of the operator. All movements are operated by hydraulic. The manipulator is equipped with a special type of clamp to handle both flask and mould.

Mould Drying Oven - (LPG Operated)

The Drying tunnel of mould, drying operation is performed by forced hot air circulation inside the oven. The air flow generated by a set of fans is heated by means of a heat exchanger powered by a Gas fired burner. This machine is equipped with pneumatically operated partially closed doors.

Closing Station

In the Manual mould handler type MM1800, the handler is composed of two arms moving along in the upper structure. Closing is obtained by means of a hydraulic cylinder. Holding clamp with articulated joints are incorporated on the ends of the two arms to match the mould shape.

Pouring & Cooling Line

This pouring line is an automatic PLC operated line consisting of Gravity flanged wheel roller track with Powered transfer cars on both ends to transfer the mould from closing station to pouring and cooling line and also to transfer the poured mould to shake out. The Cast iron pouring plates are placed on the pouring track, to carry the mould.

Shake out with Sound Proof Cabin

The Shake out designed to break the NO- Bake moulds complete with pre-reclaimer and vibrating cells

Grid size - 2500X3600mm
Maximum loading capacity -11000 Kgs

The Sound proof cabin is enclosed with shake out, and doors are also provided at top and front side operated by hydraulic to avoid the noise. A dust collector is connected with Shake out, to collect the dust generated inside the shake out whilst in operation.

Sand Storage Silos

The Reclamation Plant consists of scrubbing unit, Sleeve type filter, Vibrating grid, Surge hopper, cooler, and cooling tower connected with Pump. The Scrubbing unit fan creates an air flow for fluidization, the fines generated by the scrubbing unit are conveyed and collected by the sleeve filter and sand again enters into the vibrating grid and the sand screening and elimination of debris. After that, this sand enters into the sand cooler to cool the sand for set temperature and finally goes to the silo through the propulsor. The Reclamation Plant capacity is 15-20 Tonnes/hour.( Each one for Iron and Steel )

Thermal Reclamation capacity of 5 MT / Hour for Furan Production Line.

In view of reducing the carbon foot print, Pitti has installed Thermal Reclamation plant of 5 MT/hour supplied by IMF, Italy. By use of this the foundry has been reducing its CFP by 95%.

Sand Storage

The Sand silo is manufactured according to the safety standards, complete with access catwalk ladder, barrier, inspection door, and security discharge outlets. The Storing of New, Reclaimed and to be Reclaimed sand is separately done by the individual three silos. The Capacity of each silo is 100m3

Sand Drier - Rotary Type Sand Dryer

The Fuel source by LPG, with 5 MT/Hr drying washed silica sand of grain size AFS 40 – 45 is accomplished with belt conveyors and bucket elevator to load the sand and thereby the dried sand is pneumatically transported to storage silo’s, Mould & Core making areas.

Core Production
