Automation

Industry 4.0 and digitalisation allow for new manufacturing methods and demand new business models. MHP, KUKA and Munich Re present one vision for these: the new SmartFactory as a Service.Using SmartFactory as a Service allows manufacturers to focus on client satisfaction without having to bear peripheral parts of the value creation process, investment costs and risks themselves. For the first time, this makes flexible small-batch manufacturing commercially viable.Through the innovative...

Chemicals

To meet increasingly stringent carbon regulations, a rethinking of drive conceptsis required for the long-term. Until e-mobility can be used across the board, however, "conventional" drive technology will be further downsized in conjunction with ever more powerful turbocharger technology in order to be able to satisfy the aforementioned requirements. To withstand higher exhaust gas temperatures, for example, turbocharger components are now cast in steel, a process which places new...

Coremaking

The processes and industry behind the manufacturing of sand cores is constantly evolving to drive more environmental friendly solutions while also improving the cost and cycle times. Various well-known companies are specialized to offer solutions to modern foundries from sand preparation, core shooting, core hardening and core removal. For prototyping and small series the additive manufacturing known as 3D-printing is leading the way. For large series the cold box process and inorganic...

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

NPP Ferolit is one of the industry’s leading companies in Ukraine. Located in the town of Gorishni Plavni in the Kremenschuk iron ore district of central Ukraine about a 4-hour drive from Kiev – it provides domestic and foreign companies with high-quality castings and piping details.  For more than 18 years, the company which employs 380 staff, has also been a leading manufacturer and supplier of the grinding bodies required to break down the raw materials used in the cement 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...

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...
