Low pressure plants -
Established in Padua toward the end of the 90’s, LPM is nowadays a reality specialized in the design and manufacture of foundry machines and tooling for the low pressure and recently gravity die casting of aluminium.
Our casting machines either for the low pressure or gravity technique are all designed to cast a wide variety of castings such as car- truck and motorcycle wheels, cylinder heads, engine blocks, suspension arms, knuckles, bedplates, various housings for gearbox- clutch and flywheels, etc., and conceived to minimize both the cycle time and the rejects with unchanged high reliability.
Last but not least, LPM can offer to the Customers, in the case of turnkey packages, the possibility to test them in its own experimental foundry equipped with the necessary machines and inspection equipment.
The Customer can select the machine according to its own needs among a wide range of low pressure machine models either with
refractory or crucible furnaces such as
BP3 furnace extraction and tilting
BPB furnace reversal for an easier riser tube changeover
BPD version with 2 press open/close units
BPC crucible type with furnace extraction for an easier riser tube changeover
BPT unit with press top platen shuttling
BPS ergonomic unit with an easier access with furnace capacities ranging from 600 to 1500 kg.
Gravity die casting benches in the following models
SCB stationary bench designed for cylinder heads and/or smaller engine blocks
TCB tilting bench for castings such intake manifolds and/or safety components
Peripheral Process Automation
Automation and robotization of casting plants
Foundry tooling design and construction
Our captive toolmaking facility is equipped with a wide range of modern hardware and software packages, and a modern CNC machines line-up.
Semi finishing plants for wheels and/or various castings Fettling units and de-sprueing machines for car wheels.
