In the tilt casting process the casting machine is tilted to a position where the joint line of the mold is horizontal.

This movement of the tilt machine is done at a controlled rate, so the metal enters the casting cavity gently and with minimum air entrapment resulting in a clean casting surface.
Although not suitable for all types of casting, it is certainly the best method for parts where surface finish and integrity are critical.

Wahl has 7 tilt casting machines with a capacity from 180Kg to 600Kg.
