Case Study: VIBRA-MILL® in Action

Challenge

A Midwest foundry required a unit that could not only handle their large, unique-shaped, no-bake molds but also process to their production requirements.

Approach

After researching equipment providers, the foundry selected General Kinematics to custom design a VIBRA-MILL®  Vibratory Batch Sand Reclamation unit. The VIBRA-MILL®  automates the no-bake mold processing and shakes, agitates, vibrates, tumbles and abrades sand of 4 foot lumps down to minus 20 mesh grain size.

Solution

The VIBRA-MILL®  efficiently separated the refuse metallics the foundry was struggling to process. Meanwhile they were able to reclaim grain size sand that was recycled back into their process, thus saving the foundry the cost of new sand.

Results

This unit has been providing efficient service since 1994!
