Programmable Tilt Power Units

The Programmable tilt system is designed for applications that require variable tilt rates. Variable tilt rates can increase your profitability by:

  • Improving Yield
  • Improving Metal Flow
  • Reducing Air Entrainment of the metal in the metal stream
  • Reducing Inclusions
  • Reducing turbulances as the metal enters the mold

The system uses our time proven hydraulic power unit. Refer to Hydraulic Power Units pages for standard unit details. The system uses a PLC control and a touch screen operator interface. The unit can be configured to fit almost any application, but most systems are six valve. Normal circuits include tilt, ram, front eject, core, casting catcher in/out and casting catcher vertical movement. The proportional tilt valve is PLC controlled with feedback from a trunnion mounted potentiometer or optional ultra sonic sensor on the casting machine. Tilt rates are programmed by drawing the desired ramp curve on the touch screen with your fingertip. The PLC can store up to eight different ramps under a four digit code. All manual functions are included on the touch screen and touch screens are available in monochrome or color.
