Melting Shop

With more than 95% of melting furnace operation costs resulting from energy consumption and metal loss, efforts to revitalise performance or embrace optimisation can be transformational – as car manufacturer Skoda discovered. Given that the four StrikoMelter in use at its manufacturing plant in Mladá Boleslav, Czech Republic, were 15-years-old, Skoda opted to refresh them with an Equipment Modernisation Programme (EMP) from StrikoWestofen. All four StrikoMelter systems were relined and...

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

There is a first time for everything, as also recently in the history of the Mannheim Foundry, a longtime producer for Daimler AG. In order to meet the highest quality criteria and at the same time to produce highly efficient, a tool concept was developed from scratch for the first time in collaboration with development partner, Krämer+Grebe, for the new cylinder head core production of the 10.7L to 15.6L Heavy Duty Engine Platform (HDEP) engine generation to tie a well-tried. Together, the...

Pressure Die Casting Equipment

The trend mainly comes from foundries producing larger castings initially looking for horizontal moulding machines and then switching to matchplate technology during the enquiry process. The growing brake drum market in China is another driver. Jerry Ma, VP Sales OEM Foundry for DISA in China, explains: “What we’re seeing in China is that a successful sale of a DISA MATCH to one foundry then leads to many foundries in the same area or region to follow. For example, we have sold a number of...

Process Control Technology

The DISA MAC helps identify issues around mould alignment before they become a problem – that is, before they result in unnecessary rework or scrapping of one, more or many castings. The unique device consists of a bridge-like scanning bracket that is mounted across the mould string between the moulding machine and the pouring unit. This bracket is equipped with laser sensors that continuously scan along the mould string, tracing specifically designed impressions on each mould. Clever...

Refractories

The current advantages, such as minimum footprint area, smallest contact area and optimum moulding sand compaction beneath were adopted from the existing FEEDEX K concept. From the first idea to the serial stage, extensive tests were carried out. Prior to casting tests, solidification simulations were conducted for verification purposes.Within the new concept, a large part of the compressor core is heated by the highly exothermic feeder sleeve material.• This significantly reduces the contact...

Sand & Binders

Why Thermally Reclaim? Today’s modern foundry is under increasing pressure not only to reduce costs but to reduce its impact on the environment, whilst at the same time improve and maintain it’s casting quality.   One of the ways of meeting these requirements is to invest in sand reclamation.  Whilst most foundries now have mechanical reclamation, many are looking to further reduce costs and invest in Thermal reclamation to get as close to 100% reuse levels as...
