U-Series Shell Core Mold Machines

Safe, easy, shell core removal is made possible by the swinging door design. When the door opens at the end of the cycle, the attendant is facing the heater plate for core removal – there is no heater plate behind him. He never needs to put his hand or body in the heated area between core box halves. Either right or left hand opening doors are available in all three models to permit greater efficiency when an attendant handles more than one machine. Operation is simple, safe and economical since the cycle is completely automatic.

The Shalco U-150 provides a new dimension in shell core machines. This compact machine is small enough to fit into practically any production layout and supplies the need for small and medium size cores and molds of the highest quality. It offers the same speed and accuracy found in larger Shalco machines but with small machine economy and convenience. Right and left hand models are available for one-man multiple machine installations. The U-150, like all Shalco models, is backed by SHALCO SYSTEMS’ experienced engineering, manufacturing and service organizations.
