6000 Kg

5,8 Kg

Number of moving parts components:
1 large mechanical moving part of a weight of nearly 500 Kg

To prevent galling of the moving part caused by the geometrical form of the component, which precluded adequate draughts, Eurostampi set a 0.5 mm gap between the moving part and the cavity, after 2 mm traverse. The casting could therefore pour over the moving part. In this manner, the casting ingates were shifted to zones hidden from view, ensuring a more aesthetically pleasing end-result, and the dimensions of the mould were reduced.
