Core handling

With innovative and process-reliable automation solutions in the field of core handling, we boost your quality and efficiency. From large interlinked systems to modular automation cells, our experienced team understands your processes and requirements.

Core handling: the technology

Whenever complex castings with cavities and undercuts need to be produced, cores made of sand or salt come into play. In some cases, more than 30 different cores are required in order to manufacture modern parts such as cylinder crankcases, cylinder heads, hydraulic valves or turbine blades.

Automated core handling

Our innovative, modular gripper concepts allow even intricate cores to be removed damage-free from your machine. Vision systems improve your quality and boost value creation.

Using-tried-and-tested processes, we remove burrs at the core parting line quickly and precisely and assemble your individual cores into core packages with utmost accuracy. Automated joining technologies and foundry-compliant versions of all components enable our systems to handle the most complex of tasks in some of the harshest of environments.

Core handling: the advantages

  • Improvement of output thanks to fast automated core removal
  • Improvement of parts quality ‎due to robotic deburring and vision systems
  • Better dimensional accuracy of core packages due to precise, automated joining technology
  • Reduction of core breakage/core rejects and core damage by means of innovative gripper concepts
  • Stabilization of processes by means of innovative joining and process technology
  • ‎Reduction and simplification of in-plant logistics due to automated core package assembly at the start of the process chain
