Over Easter JOEST delivered and mounted Europe’s biggest vibrating machine – a casting cooler with a capacity of 55 t/h automotive castings for one of the biggest customer foundries in Germany. Thanks to good Project Management production could start-up on time even though the time schedule was very tight.
Machine dynamically the casting cooler is designed as active mass-compensated resonance machine with a modular vibration absorber array.
Thermodynamically the cooling function is based on a convective casting/air counter current heat exchange. The effective length of the machine is 37000 mm and the outside width 3800 mm. The net weight of the casting cooler is 72.000 kg. For the transport and easier installation the cooler had to be split into several sections.
With more than 90 years experience is JOEST one of the worldwide leading companies in the field of vibration technology and bulk handling with subsidiaries and agencies all over the world.
