Closure of the shot sleeve by a patented counter piston
Dosing by patented vacuum modules directly on the shot sleeve
Patented suction pipe holder for a flexible positioning
Dosing the melt into the shot sleeve only by vacuum. The standardized modules can be used at different shot sleeve sizes.
The swivelling suction pipe allows the INHEAT furnace system to be placed on the left or right side directly next to the injection unit, which means that the K1 system can be used on any die casting machine, regardless of the manufacturer.
The shot sleeve is sealed vacuum tight by the hydraulically operated counter piston. This generates a high vacuum in the shot sleeve. Die cavity vacuum seals are not required.
