Abstract (en)

The machine (1) can be used for the simultaneous production of a plurality of pistons by means of gravity casting. The machine includes respective supporting and actuating structures (8; 9, 10, 11; 17, 18, 19; 14, 15, 16) for the internal male plugs (A), each of the internal lateral blocks (B, C), each of the external side pieces (D, E) and the upper element F of the various casting cavities. The machine can therefore be easily reconfigured for varying the type and number of the pistons to be simultaneously produced. The machine also provides the possibility of causing its sole casting part to be selectively rocked, thus making it possible, for example, to place inserts produced in accordance with the ALFin process into the casting cavities. <IMAGE>
