Design of the Continuous Casting Machine for Battery Grid
In order to increase the production quality and efficiency of the battery grid, the new type of continuous casting machine is designed in this article. First the structure of the continuous casting machine is introduced, namely drum, shoe and clamp mechanism. Then, the drum is designed whose peripheral surface is machined the battery grid pattern machined ,in which the liquid circulation system is disposed to maintain its stable temperature. Finally the shoe is introduced which has an arcuate surface, and it is maintained in pressure-mating engagement with the outer peripheral surface of drum by the clamp mechanism The successful design of continuous casting machine will significantly increase the production efficiency and quality of battery grid.
