I like this stuff!

I have a 140k btu Buderus cast sectional that is simmilar to these. Been out of service for a while now and time to find it a new home.
I have to admit it is a bit like artwork inside. Makes my EKO look like it was put together by a farmer.
The technology of casting metal like that - with cores and all the other stuff, is the culmination of thousands of years of technique.
I'm impressed with their level of automation- that's what's needed to compete these days.
That's dang cool. Must be a significant demand for the product...that facility is $$$. But I know why Craig really likes it...check out the babe with the flowing hair that appears at :45 - :49, then again at 1:25 - 1:28, then again at 3:39 - 3:42
Well, I wasn't gonna watch but now...
She makes me wanna buy one...whatever it is.
Goddess of Hell Fire....not sure if that is good or bad....

An engineer like you must really appreciate this stuff!
When I tried casting some aluminum it made me appreciate it even more than I did before! Every single step of that process, from the composition of the cores to the chemistry of the metal, is tightly controlled or it doesn't work.
It looks like they use automatic molding machines......
I love it. There is something primal about metal casting. When I first visited Unicast in Boyertown, PA I was hooked.
They're setting cores and pouring by hand. Apparently they can compete without a modern automated foundry.
Here's an automated foundry, the DISAMatic, fifty years old and going strong:
