Abstract (en)

A machine for carrying out a low-pressure casting process in which a pressurized molten casting material is introduced from below into moulds (11) that on their lower side have at least one opening (10) for the introduction of the said casting material. The machine comprises a scaffolding frame (2) for supporting the said moulds (11) and with at least two parts (4, 22) that define respectively a casting station (4) and and an auxiliary station (22). A unit (12) to sustain the said moulds (11) comprises a first (12a) and a second (12b) portion capable of sustaining a pair of the respective moulds (11). The supporting unit (12) is mounted on the scaffolding frame (2) in such a manner as to be capable of rotating around a principal axis (X140) in such a manner as to produce, as a result of the said motion, the alternate and simultaneous passage of the said first (12a) and the said second (12n) portion from the said casting station (4) to the said auxiliary station (22) and viceversa. <IMAGE>
