Low volume casting of anode plates ready for electrolytic refining can be performed on the Lewis rotary casting machine.
In the above picture 250kg silver dore plates are cast to supply a “Kodak type” silver parting plant.
The same machine can be used for casting copper anodes during copper recycling or for recasting of scrap anodes at an electrolytic copper refinery.
Demoulding is achieved automatically by lifting the mould off the indexing table and inverting it to lower the anode plate onto an out-put conveyor

This provides our clients with the dual benefits of the latest overseas technology in locally built equipment. Accordingly, conformity to local regulations is assured, plus the benefits of ongoing local service from the equipment builders.
Further, the need to hold expensive stocks of special spare parts is minimised as quality approved, locally available alternatives are built-in to the original machinery wherever practical.
