Automatic Shelling OCTOPUS

This automatic shelling robot OCTOPUS (9-Axis CNC automatic shelling and automatic gripping & hanging robot) has been researched & developed by our company for several years. And after many years of use in our foundry, the quality is stable and reliable. In 2022, we put OCTOPUS into production and on the market for selling. It is the best choice for investment casting foundries to realize the intelligent and digital transformation in shelling process. 

This OCTOPUS can automatically identify and grip the clusters from the matched carousel (shelling&drying line), and then coat slurry, control slurry and rainfall sand (float sand) for clusters. After that, it will automatically hang the clusters back to the carousel. Matched with our company's equipment of automatic slurry-adding, automatic sand-adding and slurry smoother, the automation of shelling production can be truly realized.
 With the application of OCTOPUS, the shelling production becomes easier than before ever. The operation is simple and easy-to-learn, and maintenance and adjustment is convenient.
