The Fox® Air Float Cut-Off machine is ideal for gate and riser removal on small to medium size castings or castings on runner bars or trees. The unit is excellent for small to medium production runs since fixtures are very easy to change and generally no other settings are required. It is ideal for castings that are too heavy for operator handling as the air float feature makes moving several hundred pounds almost effortless. Once the casting is fixtured, cutting can take place anywhere around the periphery since the floating gondola allows for fast, easy positioning and repositioning of heavy casting trees or individual parts. The abrasive cutting is rapid using the hydraulic down pressure system. If the gate or riser is on a flat surface, additional grinding may be eliminated or greatly reduced.
Summer is right around the corner, and with it comes opportunities for foundries to shut down and perform their required maintenance and repairs! Keeping your foundry running smoothly and efficiently is our top job at Vulcan Engineering, and that requires the upkeep of existing equipment, and when necessary, the addition of new parts and equipment.

Super Abrasive Grinder Wheels Provide Longer Life and Other Advantages Over Bonded Abrasive Wheels
Vulcan Engineering recently shipped several Fox® Model 420 Stand Grinders with Super Abrasive (SA) wheels designed for SNAG grinding. The 20” SA wheel fits on a standard machine with no modification providing the user the capability to switch between bonded abrasive and SA wheels based on job requirements. For example, grinding iron casting with the SA wheel and grinding steel casting with the bonded abrasive wheel.
