WET CAST: AUTOMATION OF PRODUCT RELEASE FROM RUBBER MOULD NOW AVAILABLE

Home / News / WET CAST: AUTOMATION OF PRODUCT RELEASE FROM RUBBER MOULD NOW AVAILABLE

Over the years the traditional and widespread maunufacturing process of producing ‘stone veneer’ products has has been a very labour intensive and phyiscal operation with reagrd to the release of the ‘wet cast’ products from the rubber moulding.
In 2014 Vortex Hydra have undertaken much research in this field and have arrived at some very important results. As a result of this Vortex Hydra are now installing a complete automatic wet cast production plant in Turkey which covers the full scope of manufacture from concrete mixing through to the release of products from the moulds. The handling of  the rubber moulds which are fitted inside of steel plates is a fully automatic process. Each rubber mould having a natural stone finish  is automatically filled with the coloured concrete mix.
The shape and dimensions of the artificial stones which can vary are automatically released by a new machine specifically designed by Vortex Hydra for this application.  This machine is unique in as much as it does not require adjustment to operate with different size rubber moulds: length, width and thickness.
The Vortex Hydra automatic mould-release system whose patent application has already been submitted, is an “innovative” solution and opens new horizons for traditional wet cast product producers particularly with regard to the significant cost savings that can be made.
