Mineral Cast Systems
ROC® mineral cast solutions increase capacity and throughput by reducing burden and transport weights. Much like a skyscraper, we produce a steel substructure for stability. Ours are precision machined and filled with ground positioning components and fasteners. We then fill or encapsulate the assembly with a composite structure of mineral particles and epoxy resin. The result is a working platform that is lightweight, stable and dampened.
ROC® mineral cast has low thermal conductivity and excellent resistance to corrosion. As the mineral cast component has low tensile and impact strength, unintended impacts to the composite structure will not disturb the steel positioning and clamping components. With attenuation rates 6 to 10 times better than grey cast iron, ROC® mineral cast solutions can increase cell output.
Ergonomics and machine capacity aspects of manufacturing get easier with ROC® mineral cast workholding solutions, many of which are 50% lighter than alternatives. As companies look to standardize their operator interfaces, they should also look to ROC® mineral cast solutions to package these standards.
