Compact electronic induction vacuum/pressure casting machines scaled down to a smaller size. Pressovac is a perfect entry-level induction casting machine that will keep up with your production as your business grows.

The melting/casting chamber and cover are made of thick anodized aluminum and both cover and chamber floor are water-cooled so that chamber stays cool even after multiple castings — there is no downtime between casts.

Pressovac casts gold, silver, platinum, palladium, titanium alloys and steel and handles all types of models from the heaviest man's ring to the thinnest filigree and even stone-in-place casting. Melts via electronic induction for a quick self-stirring homogeneous melt, then casts under vacuum with a powerful overpressure of inert gas to simultaneously pull and push the metal into the flask. Guaranteed dense castings without the brittleness, cracking or subsurface porosity that cause expensive rework or customer returns.

Pressovac is available in two models:
  • Pressovac Optical includes an optical pyrometer for accurate temperature measurement of platinum, palladium, titanium alloys or steel. Supplied with 3 crucibles (1 each for gold/silver, platinum, and palladium/steel) and a flask adapter for a 3.5" x 3.5" flask. (Can also cast gold and silver but if accurate temperature measurement is needed for these metals, we recommend the Pressovac Dual, below.)

  • Pressovac Dual includes both an optical pyrometer (for platinum, palladium, titanium alloys or steel) and an immersion thermocouple (for gold/silver) making it suitable for all metals. Supplied with 1 crucible kit (choose from these 3 kits: gold/silver, platinum, palladium/steel) and a flask adapter for a 3.5" x 3.5" flask.
After metal is melted (1 to 2 minutes depending on metal type and quantity), its temperature is automatically stabilized. By means of a single push button, the metal is quickly and steadily poured into the flask by means of a pneumatic crucible tilting system. Spills and underfills from manual pouring, too quickly or too slowly, are completely eliminated.

Castings solidify under vacuum and pressure for 2 minutes at which time the door automatically opens (door can be opened sooner simply by turning the power dial to zero).

Backed by a one-year manufacturer's warranty. CE approved.

    The difference between the two units is the type of thermocouple(s) and the crucible capacity.
