Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR POURING MOLTEN METAL FROM A CRUCIBLE
Abstract:
A system for feeding molten metal provided by a feeding component to a receiving component. The system comprises a launder circuit having an upstream end and a downstream end and a flow path fluidly connecting the upstream end to the downstream end, wherein the feeding component feeds the launder circuit with molten metal at the upstream end and the launder circuit feeds molten metal to the receiving component at the downstream end. The system also comprises a feed tilting mechanism located at the upstream end for tilting the feeding component between a holding angle for holding molten metal in the feeding component and a feeding angle for feeding molten metal to the launder circuit, a feeding scale for measuring weight of molten metal contained in the feeding component and generating weight signals accordingly; and a controller.
