As a specialist in the processing of clay-bonded molding materials, EIRICH enables foundries to meet ever-increasing demands. The molding material holds opportunities for improving the casting quality. A preparation system from EIRICH achieves higher energy efficiency. Optimized and automated processes enable the autonomous preparation of molding material. They are the basis for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). At GIFA 2019, visitors can gather information about groundbreaking EIRICH technology, from which every founder can benefit. The highlights and exhibits presented at the fair include a QualiMaster AT1 of the new generation and an Intensive Mixer R28 with torque motors.

The QualiMaster AT1 system is well known and proven as the heart of quality assurance in molding material preparation. The new generation of modular design is available as Eco, Profi or ProfiPlus version. In the Eco version, the inline tester is equipped with a compactability measuring unit. A reporting tool facilitates using it as a stand-alone unit. The Profi version additionally measures compactability and shear strength with deformability. Completely new possibilities are now available with the QualiMaster AT1 ProfiPlus: For the first time, the inline tester also measures springback and gas permeability. Due to its modular design, the AT1 Eco can be upgraded to the AT1 Profi or AT1 ProfiPlus at any time 

EIRICH mixers equipped with torque motors as direct drives achieve a new level of energy efficiency. Energy savings of up to 25 percent are a realistic prospect. These motors also have the advantages of lower maintenance requirements and reduced noise emissions. Torque motors are not just a good option for new EIRICH mixers; they can also be retrofitted to EIRICH mixers in operation without any problems. 

Another highlight expected at the fair is the prototype of an Evactherm® mixer in a new small size.
