The machines are fully automated and can employ either wet or dry coating methods.

One of the benefits of the multi-head is consistent production, the process variables are monitored and controlled at the critical points.

These include pouring temperature and die temperature. The latest control and instrumentation technology is incorporated into the equipment.

Production rates are dependant on the wall thickness of the casting. Typically a six head unit can consistently cycle at 45 seconds producing four cylinder liners per casting, giving an hourly production rate of 320 liners.
