Key benefits

Higher efficiency

The two-platen design creates a stable production process with improved locking force distribution and reduced flash for better repeatability and higher uptime.

Reduced programming time

The intuitive touch screen user interface combined with our DataView control system can cut programming times by up to 25%.

Increased productivity by up to 30%

With our unique shot control and a casting process that protects the die, your Carat machine can help to increase overall productivity by up to 30%.

Highlight features

Two-platen technology

More stable production

The elimination of the third platen reduces the overall length of the machine by as much as two meters. This allows you to achieve higher die locking forces in the same physical space, from a more rigid machine.

Unique shot control

Creating higher quality parts

Our unique injection unit provides real-time closed-loop control, automatically reacting to deviations and correcting them immediately. This results in cast parts of high quality, repeatedly, shot after shot. In addition, automated algorithms help you to create optimal casting profiles with shorter cycle times and a higher part quality.

DataView control

So easy to operate and control

DataView, our innovative user interface, can help your operators to centrally control the complete die-casting system. Comprehensive support in daily operation, control over the entire system, as well as targeted diagnostics and analyses, these features are all available via easy-to-use touch screens and simple graphical interfaces.

The operation is simply more intuitive, which is visible immediately. All the information we need for operation is always available. It’s impressive.

With Carat, you may seamlessly control your peripheral devices via a single display unit. You can also opt for our SmartVac vacuum system, BuhlMark marking device, BuhlSpray spraying device, BuhlRob die casting extractor, and our BuhlLadle ladling device to create a smoother, automated process.

From structural parts, engine blocks or complex components in aluminum or magnesium, no two processes are the same. Carat’s modular construction allows us to tailor the die-casting solution for your precise requirements.
