Versatility, practicality, comfort, speed, economy… these are the qualities provided by the core shooter we are going to talk about in today’s post. In this case, Primafond brings us closer to all these features.

More, sometimes, is not better.


The adjectives that describe the characteristics of an efficient core shooter: versatile, practical, comfortable, fast, economical … important qualities which, unfortunately, are not easy to measure objectively.

Sometimes the bombastic branding of a trigger, together with aesthetics and clever advertising, pushes up the price, so it is well above the price of triggers from small manufacturers such as PRIMAFOND from Vicenza, Italy. As experience shows, the price difference is often not matched by superior features and performance.



The premise is that investment in technological innovation and new equipment in the foundry is of vital importance to remain viable, efficient and to grow.

The union between the needs of foundries and the collaboration with machinery manufacturers, technically prepared and with constant doses of innovation, originates a positive evolution generating strong and efficient foundries.

Fundamental for the foundry is the choice of the manufacturer, since the latter must interpret the foundry’s needs, offering its experience, quality of equipment, good after-sales service and seriousness in the commercial relationship.

In addition, in terms of productivity, for an efficient and profitable equipment, we must also consider other important aspects for the machining professionals:

  • Simplicity of manoeuvres and commands.
  • Ease of adjustment and removal of the taps.
  • Easy assembly of the core box.
  • Minimal and easy maintenance.

In particular, the choice of a shooter for large cores, e.g. to produce cores over 50 kg, must have been carefully considered, as these issues determine customer satisfaction.

The PRIMAFOND SCB 40 – 60 – 80 to 100 series of core shooters for COLD BOX PRIMAFOND SCB 40 – 60 – 80 to 100, with capacities ranging from 40 to 100 litres, have so far been appreciated by the most demanding professionals in the production of medium and large sized cores. In common with machines of the same type from other manufacturers, PRIMAFOND’s “SCB” model shooters have the strength, power, hydraulic movements, automatic operation with PLC control, all of which are now basic elements thanks to the available technology. The company incorporates all the safety measures required for safe operation, simplicity of use and regulation, ease of assembly of the moulds and extraction of the cores, together with the ability to easily add any type of armature or hook to the comfortable working position.

PRIMAFOND designs and manufactures a complete range of Cold Box firing machines, with capacities from 5 to 100 litres, from the simplest and most universal firing machines for manual boxes, to automatic firing machines with constant outputs of 120 cycles/hour and machines for horizontal boxes with tools for extracting the core from the outside of the firing machine.

It completes its offer with the following equipment:

  • Sand production and distribution plants for core making.
  • Triggering machines for shell moulding.
  • Automatic gas generators for the different processes.
  • Amine neutralisers.
  • Pneumatic senders.
  • Tanks for core painting.
  • Hydraulic and pneumatic ball breakers.
