Carat is a two-platen machine with die locking forces of 10500 to 92000 kN, designed for die casting your large and complex parts, such as structural components, while increasing productivity by up to 30%.

Key Features

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

DataView makes it easy for your operators to monitor and control the machine. It also allows for central control and monitoring of the integrated peripheral devices.

The Bühler closed-loop, real time injection unit is the foundation for best-in-class cast part quality. Your Carat machine can help to increase overall productivity by up to 30%.

Key Components

More Stable Production

Removing 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.

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 hig 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.

So Easy To Operate and Control

Bühler’s powerful and unique shot control with closed-loop and real-time controlled injection gives you reproducible cast part results with a stable process that preserves the die. Comprehensive support in daily operation, control over the entire system and targeted diagnostics and analyses are all available via easy-to-use touch screens and simple graphical user interfaces.

Tailored for Your Process

From structural parts, powertrain parts, complex components up to megacastings in aluminum or magnesium, no two processes are the same. Carat’s modular construction allows us to tailor the die-casting solution for your field of application.

Cell Solutions for Your Needs

With Carat, you can seamlessly control your peripheral devices via a single display unit. Even complex megacasting cells can be controlled with the SmartCMS cell management system. 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.
