As part of a large contract for an overseas aerospace foundry, Omega has now completed tests on this ‘Size 9’ Rollover. The machine stands at 6.3 M in height weighs 34 tonnes. It will be capable of rotating and stripping a mould with dimensions 3500mm x 2500mm x 875/875. This is the largest Rollover ever made by Omega and, as far as we know, by any other manufacturer as well!
The design is such that it can be split in two for transportation and shipping. It has dual oil motor drives with other standard Omega features such as hydraulic powered carriages, encoder motor rotational control and multiple ‘proof of draw’ sensors.
The unit has been designed to strip the moulds that are produced on a large flaskless Omega shuttle moulding line that will be producing large parts in both aluminium and magnesium for the helicopter industry.
And it is now on its way to the customer!
