THEORY AND PRACTICE OF GRAIN REFINING FOR ALUMINIUM ALLOYS

Salt form grain refining offers improvements in grain refining of aluminum alloys. These improvements can be demonstrated via some industry standard techniques and then quantified for the technical and/or economic benefit to a casting and to the foundry that pours them.

EXCELLENCE IN ALUMINIUM CASTING THROUGH COOPERATION

For the production of high quality castings it is essential that the best decisions are made at every step of the process from design and development of the component, the moulding practice, how the metal is prepared and finally the pouring and solidification of the casting. A cooperative approach ensures that a broad range of options can be considered and best practice is continually improved. This article details how this philosophy of partnership between supplier and customer contributes to the production of best-in-class aluminium castings.

DOSING FURNACE LINING WITH INSURAL PRE-CAST SHAPES REDUCES DOWNTIME IN FOUNDRIES

A completely dry lining system using INSURAL pre-cast shapes eliminates time-consuming sintering during re-lining and the required aluminium melt density index is achieved immediately upon production start-up. Significant energy savings can be realized due to the highly insulating nature of the INSURAL lining system.

BRAND-NEW INNOVATION FOR THE NON FERROUS SECTOR: THE EXOTHERMIC FEEDER FEEDEX NF1

Foseco launches the first exothermic feeder for NF applications. Quick, steady and long-lasting reaction, high strength and improved feeding effect characterize this recipe.
