By way of illustration, some basic examples of production can be shown:
4 heated casting beds with passages
4 casting beds of 140 m will be considered, with the passages between them. The passage arrangement between adjacent beds allows the machines working on said tracks to be crossed without limitations. This facilitates the organization of the work, being possible to make the tasks performed in each bed independent.
In addition, the existence of heating makes it possible to assume that all the molded beds will be able to be removed the next day, without limitations.
In addition, a working period of 10 h is assumed.
The following graph shows in a simplified way a possibility of productive organization:
It is observed that it is possible to achieve a production of between 3 and 4 beds daily, every other day, although this requires working with very narrow margins of maneuver in the face of possible unforeseen events.
8 casting beds without passages
Some aspects ignored in the previous examples:
