The LamaCaster is a fast cycling four-slide machine for the highly efficient production of small and complex zinc die castings. It is a very fast and flexible machine that enables the creation of low inertia manufacturing systems. This type of manufacturing system is characterized by high levels of productivity, flexibility and competitiveness achieved through high cycle speeds, optimal raw material usage and low cost tooling that combine to deliver maximum process effectiveness.
The Lama CombiCaster incorporates all the benefits of the standard LamaCaster machine, but with additional functionality that enables the production of insert cast components. The Lama CombiCaster can produce combined zinc-steel products at similar production rates as the standard machine.
The Lama CombiCaster Wheel Weight machine builds on the proven Lama CombiCaster design. With the addition of a fast and precise clip transport and positioning system the Lama CombiCaster Wheel Weight is a very capable machine for zinc “lead-free” clip-on wheel weight manufacture. It can produce a full range of weights from 5g to 60g.
The LamaCaster, Lama CombiCaster and Lama CombiCaster Wheel Weight are effective and flexible solutions for companies that need to produce small and complex zinc die castings or who buy large volumes of small zinc die castings and would like to bring production in-house.
The machine and its associated process philosophy sit well with the mission of the Titusplus group of companies which is ‘‘to provide customers with products and services that improve overall productivity and quality while reducing manufacturing and assembly costs.”
“Our expertise in designing and building automated assembly systems for demanding customers from a wide spectrum of industries from metal through to automotive, electric and medical industries, combined with an extensive knowledge and long experience of die casting technology used in the manufacture of furniture hardware, has enabled us to develop an innovative solution for the efficient low-cost production of zinc die castings. Taking into consideration the increasingly competitive nature of markets and the importance of manufacturing productivity we believe strongly that our advanced die casting technology will receive a warm welcome from both producers of small zinc castings and companies that buy large volumes of die cast product.” said Samo Prodan, managing director of Lama Automation.
