For projects that fall outside the capacity of the standard machine, various extension chambers can be configured to suit your requirements. This option is only available for 5/04 and 5/06 machines.
This option allows you to significantly increase the casting capacity. The twin robot is only available for 5/04 and 5/06 machines and can be configured to ‘syncro’ or ‘independent’ modes as required.
