Enviroment, Energy & Safety

Material recycling in the IndustryMany materials have to be comminuted before further processing - this includes different chips and stamped parts made of plastic and metal, but also valuable precious metals such as gold and silver as well as laboratory samples. In this process, a part of the raw material often remains in the crushing machine. In order to recover the precious material, the plant had to be opened and cleaned demanding much time and effort up to now. Erdwich Zerkleinerungssysteme...

Melting Shop

The trend towards ever lighter vehicles has created new demands on cast aluminium parts and associated production processes. Return material in particular poses great challenges to foundries: melting furnaces increasingly have to handle a mix of large flat cast parts and smaller thin-walled material. Automotive supplier KS HUAYU AluTech (Neckarsulm, Germany) has found a solution to the problem in StrikoWestofen’s “BigStruc”. Not only can the StrikoMelter BigStruc handle return material with a...

Metals & Alloys

Zinc alloys are characterized by low melting points and excellent flowability. Hot-chamber die casting produces exceptionally complex and precise parts with excellent surface finish. These are suitable for very demanding tasks such. Electronic housings or precision mechanics for electronic, optical or mechatronic systems. Due to the good castability of the material, very small wall thicknesses are already realized up to clearly less than one millimeter. However, many designers lose their...

Moulding

SAVELLI has recently installed and successfully commissioned a new horizontal tight flask molding line type F1 (1.400 x 965 x 400/400 mm, 60 molds per hour) equipped with Formimpress mold compaction system served by a new SAVELLI SK 90 sand cooler and a new SAVELLI SGMT 4000 sand mixer at Zakład Metalurgiczny “WSK Rzeszów” Sp. z o.o., in Poland. The new molding line produces heavy large grey and ductile iron castings mainly for trucks and tractors. The molds-castings are partially cooled in...

FP: Dr. Ederer, where do you stand with your company today? You are not only one of the main inventors of the technology, but also the founder of Voxeljet. What are some keywords to describe how the technology has developed in recent years? Dr. Ederer: We started with our technology at the TU in Munich. At that time, we were working on a small scale, but could already see the scope of possibilities and applications. In the meantime, the whole thing has come very far. For the automotive...

Pouring, Gating, Feeding

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...

Pressure Die Casting Equipment

The powertrain of the future, legal regulations for the CO2 fleet regulation – these are challenge the automotive industry is facing. There are a lot of opened questions: What are the expectations of the automotive industry for suppliers like GF? How can a sustainable supplier strategies look like? What are the motivations for companies to invest in E-Mobility? Where do we see chances for us? Has the internal combustion engine served its purpose or will it live longer than expected?  On...

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

Plant downtime is an enormous cost factor for foundries. So when it comes to refractory repairs to the dosing furnace, time is money. To speed things up, StrikoWestofen offers an innovative solution: pre-sintered refractory replacement parts that reduce downtime by about 60 percent compared to standard lining methods. Alupress, a manufacturer of high-end die-cast parts, carried out a relining using StrikoWestofen’s replacement part four years ago, and the relined furnace is still providing...

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...

Testing, measuring & Quality Control

This insight will highlight some common slurry testing mistakes that I’ve seen over the years. Avoiding these common mistakes could help keep your process running smoothly.ViscosityViscosity testing, although at first glance appearing simple, can be a little bit more complicated. One of the standard ways to check viscosity is to use a dip cup of some sort, and depending on the required viscosity of the slurry, most people would be using a Zahn 4 for backs up slurries or a Zahn 5 cup for...
