FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: General Kinematics Shakes Out the Record Books

 

 

In 2015 General Kinematics gave the record books a run for their money. The world’s biggest Shakeouts measuring in at 14x16ft (8.8m by 5.2m) individually and 28x16ft side by side were designed by GK to be implemented in a Ferrous Foundry at the northern point of the Midwest United States. The 65-ton behemoths installed in 2015 were built to handle a load of 100 tons of sand, including the weight of the flask while using relatively low horsepower with our Two-Mass natural frequency system. A Brute Force system would require approximately 60% additional horsepower beyond the GK sub-resonant design. The General Kinematics engineers built the shakeouts to be extremely reliable with no need for expensive bearings, drive belts, or eccentric shafts.

The enormous shakeouts were designed to replace the previous GK equipment that was at the end of its life cycle. Today, the shakeouts are running well every night when a flask containing remnant sand is loaded onto the shakeouts which features heavy duty AR400 perforated abrasion resistant deck plate. The sand falls through the specifically designed openings onto GK sand reclamation conveyors to be reclaimed. The foundry is very happy with the shakeout. The customer knows that the GK brand is reliable, and continues to use General Kinematics equipment throughout their facilities.
