GK at GIFA 2019: Pre-Show Announcement

In late June 2019, General Kinematics will be attending GIFA 2019, the International Foundry Trade Fair and Technical Forum in Düsseldorf, Germany. With our international presence and a commitment to the highest quality foundry manufacturing, we’re looking forward to rubbing shoulders with some of the best in the industry.

We’ll also be bringing along two of our Foundry-Rated™ solutions, designed to improve foundry flow and productivity, increase casting throughput, diminish casting damage, and reduce maintenance cost.

Here’s a sneak peek about the equipment we’ll be bringing — and what makes them ideal for your foundry.

VIBRA-DRUM® at GIFA

If you’re want to see the General Kinematics difference up close and personal, the VIBRA-DRUM® is the way to go.

The versatile VIBRA-DRUM® Sand and Casting Conditioner offers a Two-Mass drive system in an enclosed structure, which uses less energy and creates a cleaner work environment by keeping silica contained. Castings remain in a bed of sand inside this VIBRA-DRUM®, keeping the most fragile castings safe from damage. There are also fewer moving parts designed for continuous duty, which means this piece of equipment also requires little to no maintenance.

Charge Feeders

General Kinematics vibrating furnace charge feeders offer precise automated batch control, optional scrap drying, and improved worker safety. Our charge feeders are specifically designed to control fumes and direct the charge to the center of your furnace. The Vibrating Furnace Charge Feeder can also be motorized to move in virtually any direction.

Our charge feeder includes a nosepiece that expands to prevent jams, exceptional noise reduction, and a design built for constant operation with few maintenance requirements. General Kinematics’ Two-Mass natural frequency charge feeder design requires very little energy to operate, as well, which can reduce HP and energy costs. Our feeders also limit force transfer to your furnace deck and offer variable speed material discharge to keep your furnace crucible full.

Solutions for Your Foundry

At General Kinematics, we know that the challenge to find Foundry-Rated™ solutions goes beyond building equipment that can handle heat and dust. It requires solutions that can run year-round with few maintenance needs, produce (and handle) heavy and hot castings, and keep workers safe.

That’s why we’ve designed VIBRA-DRUM® and charge feeder solutions that address some of the foundry industry’s biggest challenges. And we do so with 60 years of experience and over 50,000 units installed all over the world.

If you’re interested in seeing our foundry solutions up close and personal, a team of General Kinematics experts will be at the upcoming GIFA 2019. Be sure to stop by our booth and talk to our team to learn about our latest foundry technology. Sign up for an appointment and add GK to your schedule.
