Fornax® T

The compact casting machine with induction melting device and integrated power cooling

  • Compact benchtop casting machine with very high-performance induction heating guarantees short melting cycles, minimises oxidation and thus facilitates subse- quent finishing
  • Compact dimensions and design give the new Fornax® T a very small footprint
  • Integrated power cooling provides for over 50 casts in a row, even with high ambient temperatures with moulds made of phosphate-bonded investment materials
  • High output reserves with low power consumption of just 16 amps
  • Casting temperature of up to 1550 °C: ideal for all commercially available dental alloys (except titanium)
  • The user-friendly operating panel provides information on all parameters and gives quick and easy access to all major functions
  • Very quick adjustment to different casting mould sizes by means of a simple mechanism ensures fast working
Fornax® T – From dental technicians for dental technicians

In consultation with our customers it was our main aim to further optimise our compact centrifugal casting machine Fornax® T systematically while maintaining the Fornax® T concept that has been used successfully worldwide.

The design – ergonomic and compact

The Fornax® T functions have been valued by users for many years: an ergonomic, compact centrifugal casting machine with all the technical and economic advantages. 

The advantages for you:

  • The low overall height means that a lower workbench is no longer required
  • There is sufficient space on any laboratory bench for the unit
  • A standard, fused Schuko socket is all that is req
The technology in detail

Fornax® T has a very powerful induction heating of 3,600 VA.

The advantages for you:

  • Rapid heating and melting of all commercially available precious and non-precious alloys (except titanium)
  • Sufficient power reserves even with critical alloys
  • Oxidation is minimised to the absolute necessary due to rapid melting to the casting temperature and facilitates trimming at a later stag

BEGO has developed a special crucible safety base for optimal protection of your machine during the casting procedure. 

The advantages for you:

  • If the crucible fails, the molten metal will be safely collected in the ceramic safety base
  • This effectively prevents any serious damage to the machine

 

In addition to timing the casting point, the multi-functional display also shows the service notification and enables help to be obtained quickly when servicing is required.
