Foseco and ProService Join Forces for Thermal Analysis Systems
Foseco and ProService have joined forces to drive the development of thermal analysis as the leading metallurgical control tool for iron foundries.
As part of the agreement, Foseco has funded the development of a web-based version of ITACA and ProService have appointed Foseco as exclusive distributors for its ITACA Thermal Analysis systems.
ITACA Incremental Thermal and Chemical Analysis software is a comprehensive system for measuring and controlling liquid iron metallurgy. Instant results are provided, in a simple format, for critical metallurgical control measures are provided. Statistical reports on foundry metal quality are also generated.
ITACA shows how the metal solidifies, giving critical information on metal quality such as sources of shrinkage, graphite flotation and poor graphite structure.
A range of key process control measures can be analysed over time generating essential quality control information.
Bill Simmons, International Product Manager for Ferrous Metal Treatment Products commented, “Thermal Analysis has been recognised by Foseco as a critical tool in supporting our customers' melt shop and metal treatment processes. ITACA is the leading Thermal Analysis package on the market and is ideally suited to the needs of the modern iron foundry.”
ProService Srl is an Italian engineering company founded in 2002 by 2 foundry engineers with almost 30 years experience in the foundry sector. The company specialises in plant and equipment, software and instruments and consultancy and training for iron metallurgy and mould and core making.
Nicola Segreto, one of the partners of ProService, affirmed, “The partnership between ProService and Foseco in thermal analysis will deliver customers improved quality and metallurgical understanding thanks to Foseco’s reputation in the supply and application of foundry consumables and the advanced systems and metallurgical knowledge of ProService. We are convinced this will be a successful strategy for both companies.”
