Gentle on your castings

When it comes to reducing scrap, the General Kinematics VIBRA-DRUM® is the gentlest way to remove and condition sand from castings. For aluminum or other soft metals, GK can create a shakeout with various deck surfaces that minimize casting impact and noise. Utilizing variable angle and variable force drive packages, we can also control the rate at which the castings enter and exit the shakeout.
