PressCast

PressCast 3 and 5 are our high-volume, versatile pressure over vacuum casting systems suitable for high volume jewelry manufacturers with demanding requirements.
PressCast can provide excellent quality castings, as well as “stone-in-place” casting of all low melting point metals and alloys commonly used in the jewelry manufacturing – gold, silver, brass and many more.
High casting pressure (up to 6 bar) ensures excellent casting resulting and perfect filling of the finest details. Integrated thermocouple probe and temperature controller ensures perfect casting quality and repeatability.
This advanced powerful induction heating technology provides fast and efficient melting and very good mixing of the molten metal utilizing low frequency (6kHz) and electromagnetic pulsing.
The LCD Touch control panel features modern user interface with intuitive visual feedback. It displays the measured process parameters, receives user input, sets various parameters and saves multiple programs. It also displays detailed help and warning messages and has remote diagnostics features.
