Along with grinding equipment Mid-West Machine™ designs and manufactures various types of peripheral handling equipment to work in conjunction with its grinders. Mid-West Machine™ has set the standard of the industry for decades and will continue to do so for future decades.
A Process for All Metallurgies
Vulcan has completed more Lost Foam projects than all other competitors, thanks to our expertise and experience. In addition, Vulcan has been involved, as a partner, with our customers to design complete systems which work for the process, not just as mechanical and electrical devices.
Vulcan Engineering incorporates the latest in advanced safety features, while offering reliable efficient equipment with multiple options.
We have continued to develop the Fox® Air Float Cut-Off product-line to increase flexibility of the machine with the addition of new, larger work tables; multiple options for vertical travel of the work table allowing a larger range of castings to be processed; and the addition of optional joy stick control of the cutting motion.
Robotic Aluminum Cutting Cell
Vulcan has considerable experience in the integration and creation of unique solutions using robots for metal removal applications as well as highly efficient automated systems. We engineer systems that use industrial robots to automate common tasks such as mold handling, mold pouring, casting finishing, and casting inspection. We recently completed a project that incorporated a Fanuc robot equipped with a carbide tipped saw to remove gating from aluminum automotive castings inside of an enclosed cell.
Good Signs for the Future of Steelmakers
According to an article published on IndustryWeek.com in December, the Steel Industry is finally thriving again after years of bleak news in the U.S. and European markets. Here are a few signs pointing to a prosperous outlook.
Knock-off and sort gating while easily moving heavy castings
Our line of Action® Manipulators provide robust solutions for applications that require large payload capacity, efficient movements, and increased safety for operators. This allows operators to work at safe distances and in controlled environments.
Truflo® Loop System
Fully Automatic Handling of Molds from Mold Loading to the Mold Dump Conveyor
Truflo® offers flexibility no matter what type of mold handling you require. Vulcan offers 2 configurations of the Truflo® mold handling system, the L Series (Loop System) and the H series (Horizontal System) as standard models. This video features the L Series for fully automatic handling of molds from loading molds, shifting weights and jackets to pushing off molds onto a mold dump conveyor after cooling time has been achieved.
