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

Düsseldorf, June 19, 2019 -Loramendi, voxeljet and ASK Chemicals have taken a major step to reinvent the manufacturing landscape by developing the world’s first fully automated 3D printed core production solution. The technology called Industrialization of Core Printing (ICP) allows automated production of highly complex sand cores for casting processes. By harnessing the flexibility of additive manufacturing, ICP eliminates design limitations of conventional tooling and is capable of matching...

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 It repeatedely happens that entire batches have to be withdrawn because the client has found one single defective part or small quality defects.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...
