The VTC-200V combines the features of two series:
The VC series construction and the MC table top series principle of tilted casting.
With an induction generator of 15 kW peak performance, a maximum temperature of 2000°C, a 200 ccm ceramic crucible, and manual or automatic vacuum / overpressure function, it has been possible to create the VTC-200V as a first class high temperature machine for casting platinum, palladium, copper beryllium or steel – with an unbeatable price / performance ratio. All parameters can be monitored and controlled via the new LCD display. Pouring takes place using a motor drive to tip the entire melting / casting unit. The automatic pouring function with precisely controlled pouring speed ensures reproducible casting results.
With the VTC-200V, INDUTHERM offers an extremely versatile casting machine suitable for a wide range of applications – and a number of options that were considered mutually incompatible up to now. Thus, while the VTC-200V was originally designed as a high-temperature casting machine for casting steel, palladium, platinum etc. (max 2,000 °C), large flasks also make it suitable for economically producing castings in gold, sliver, copper, aluminium and other materials.
The machine combines a dual-chamber differential pressure system with a tilting mechanism. The casting process is
achieved by rotating the entire melting-casting unit by 90°. One benefit of the tilting system is the use of economically
priced graphite or ceramic crucibles (without holes and sealing rods), these tend to have a longer service life. Some alloys,
such as copper beryllium, quickly cause crucibles with holes and sealing rods to become untight and therefore useless, and
for this reason, many casters have so far processed such alloys only in open systems – which means they can't choose to
optimize the process with overpressure or vacuum. With the VTC-200V, these handicaps no longer apply.
A completely new generation of generator and control systems is present in the VTC-200V. Operation is simple and safe thanks to a clearly arranged and easy-to-use LCD display. All parameters, right down to the variable tilting speed, can be individually set and saved to ensure that recurring castings always produce consistent results.
