VDMA Specifications

VDMA’s standard specifications 24202, 24206 and 24217 for thermo processing plants provide users, especially machinery producers and operators, with technical recommendations and practical suggestions that make design, planning and tendering easier.
The recommendations in this VDMA Specification define the interface between the high pressure metal diecasting machines and extracting devices. die spraying devices as well as metal feeding devices. This is intended to provide interchangeability. A further specification deals with the determination of the machine-specific power consumption of metal diecasting machines.
