Prototype and Manual Core Machines
EMI’s prototype core machines, the PCB series, provide manually assisted core centers designed to produce prototype cores in wood or polyurethane box construction. PCB series machines accommodate horizontally or vertically-parted existing tooling, while utilizing a low-pressure blow head to increase core box life. Throughout the machine cycle, the tooling is manually transferred on a tooling cart from the blow station to the gas station to the strip station. These all-pneumatic systems can be engineered to blow core capacities of 30 to 200 pounds.
