THT has two types of vertical casting machines, shuttle and index. Each type has several different tonnages available. Tooling and automation are then customized to meet your specifications.
THT also has the capability to provide auxiliary equipment for turnkey casting cells which can include: robotics, furnaces, tooling, cooling conveyors, specialized presses and training for the complete system integration.

The THT Shuttle Machine is our most versatile press. These machines are ideal for dedicated or small production runs and jobs that require frequent tool changes. Standard shuttle presses are available with shot forces of 100, 200, 300, 500, 800 and 1,000 tons.
The THT Index Machines are designed and built for high volume, multi-cavity casting. Standard index presses are available with shot forces of 28, 50, 100 and 250 tons.
THT’s direct gating and slower shot speed, coupled with higher metal pressure during solidification, allows us to obtain quality exceeding that of permanent mold processes.
Squeeze casting for aluminum or copper are available in either a shuttle or index machine.
