Coremaking

The baseline situation: core production is subject to a large variety of influences Especially in core production, there are situations in which apparently identical conditions produce different core qualities. This sub-process in the complex foundry process is subject to a large variety of influences. The main difficulty is that some of these influencing factors are still unknown and some of the known variables can not be directly influenced. If the cause of the error is not obvious or known,...

Discharging, Decoring, Fettling, Finishing

It includes a work piece transfer unit from different machining centers, the Surf-Finishing and fine cleaning process itself, the application of a data matrix code, packaging of the finished work pieces in small load carriers (KLT’s) and their transfer to stacking cells.  Klubert + Schmidt GmbH, located in Pottenstein, Bavaria, develops,...

Enviroment, Energy & Safety

For the most efficient use of raw materials in the production process, the processing of reject materials and by-products of the foundry and machining industries is increasingly gaining in importance. The goal is the fastest possible recycling of the metal in the production process, thus avoiding the high costs involved in temporary storage and keeping the space required to a minimum. However, before the cast elements, swarf and metal shavings can be remelted, they must be reduced in size to...

Melting Shop

The future is moving inexorably towards smart factories, but many smelting plants are still stuck with their assembly line production in industry 2.0 without IT support. Central elements of a modern factory of the 21st century, such as the interface to a central database server or an intelligent, yet heat-resistant automation including sensor technology enabling all facilities to communicate with each other, are frequently not available. Although there are numerous protocols for this purpose,...

Metals & Alloys

Metal consumer goods are the world record holders of the recycling economy. Refounding turns steel and aluminium scrap into high-quality secondary raw materials. Recycling has a positive impact on the environment and conserves natural raw material resources. The resource and energy efficient use of scrap in foundries and steel mills is a significant topic in metallurgical plant engineering. Exhibitors will present trends and developments at METEC and GIFA as well as NEWCAST and THERMPROCESS at...

Moulding

Foundry-Planet interview with GIFA and NEWCAST trade fair president Dipl.-Ing. Heinz Nelissen, Managing Director Vesuvius GmbH, Foseco Foundry Division, Borken.FP: Worldwide forecasts for the foundry industry until 2025 are moderate but positive, yet the industry faces interesting challenges.Especially in Western Europe and Germany, we had two good years of growth in the iron and steel foundries in 2017 and 2018, and the aluminum foundries are growing rather continuously. The challenges for the...

Patternmaking, mouldmaking and tooling & Rapid Prototyping, rapid tooling & 3D Printing

Thanks to its exceptional abrasion resistance, more than 100,000 replications can be produced with the polyurethane board RAKU® TOOL WB-1258. This was previously possible using either liquid systems with complex manufacturing processes with higher costs or high-priced metals like aluminum. With RAMPF’s cutting-edge foundry board material, core boxes and pattern plates are manufactured that facilitate the quick and easy production of models with outstanding abrasion resistance, dimensional...

Equipment, Plant Technology

Industry 4.0 is not merely a buzzword for CYRUS, but something that is demonstrated in practice with numerous deliveries of modern furnace charging systems. Charging technology that is tailored to meet your furnace has a massive influence on the increase in efficiency of your smelting processes.  In the spring of 2019, CYRUS got the contract from a Swedish car manufacturer to provide four 14-ton induction furnaces by fully automatic charging machines. “At GIFA 2019 we are presenting...

Sand & Binders

Thinking outside the box is worthwhile. EIRICH mixers are increasingly being fitted with torque motors for good reasons: They consume significantly less energy than conventional asynchronous motors. Torque motors also cause lower operating costs and run at significantly lower noise levels. Does an EIRICH mixer with torque drive also pay off for customers in the foundry industry? Johannes Oswald and Wolfgang Wörner have not the slightest doubt. When and why did the development of torque motors...

Service Provider

With regular maintenance, production facilities in foundries reach an average service life of 30 to 40 years. During this period, several generation changes have been made in the field of control and power technology, such as the use of PLC process control technology and converter technology.In times of increasing price pressure on foundries, it is important to exploit all potential for cost savings. As part of the modernization of switchgears, a large number of improvements can therefore be...

Testing, measuring & Quality Control

Brake discs are safety-critical components – the automotive industry demands that they are practically 100% defect-free. It repeatedely happens that entire batches have to be withdrawn because the client has found one single defective part or small quality defects. The financial damage is enormous; reputation is damaged. There is only one way to avoid this: Automated inspection of the entire production. The complete surface as well as every single air vent in every brake disc must be fully...
