Arbe table top casting machines are the professional's choice for casting machines. Designed to be easy to use and extremely reliable, the Arbe Kaya Cast vacuum casting machine is well made and built to last.
The Arbe can be used with both solid and perforated flasks with perforated flasks used set inside the right side vacuum chamber and solid flasks set up on top of the vacuum chamber. Adapter plates are included for using 3-1/2" and 4" diameter perforated flasks and for solid flask casting on top. 5" diameter perforated flasks do not require an adapter plate. Maximum perforated flask size that will invest inside the bell jar and vacuum cast inset in the machine is 5" diameter by 7" tall.
Investing is done inside the bell jar on the left hand side of the machine. The control handle selects which side of the machine the vacuum is directed too.
Casting using perforated flasks inside the casting chamber allows for vacuum assistance from the walls of the flask and not just the bottom. This extra pull can assist in making casts more successful. Great castings can also be achieved with solid wall flasks casting on top of the casting chamber.
