Foundry Practice 269

 
This edition highlights a new generation of coatings as well as the most modern equipment to control the coating application. Furthermore, it presents the new Thermal Analysis Equipment from Foseco and the latest technology for Flow Control in bottom pour ladles.
 

The articles:

COATING FOR IMPROVED INNER CLEANLINESS

Just a coating can help automotive manufacturers to achieve the demanding Euro 7 Emission norms that will come in place in 2020. Diesel engines have become very efficient in recent years, but they have room for further improvement in efficiency and emission reductions. The new SEMCO IC coating achieves the highest level ever in cleanliness inside the intricate cavities of a cylinder head and block.

AUTOMATED INTELLIGENT COATING CONCEPT FOR FERROUS FOUNDRIES

Like other industries, the most advanced foundries are evolving towards Industry 4.0. This is not just more automation, but the measurement, registration, analysis and development of algorithms to predict the stability of the very complex foundry process. The new ICU (Intelligent Coating Unit) developed by Foseco moves in this direction being the most modern equipment to guarantee the correct application parameters of a coating, making this important operation much more robust.

THE BENEFITS OF BOTTOM POUR TECHNOLOGIES IN STEEL FOUNDRIES

Flow control in steel foundries is an aspect of the foundry process which often does not receive the required attention deserved by its fundamental importance. This article shows the best practice for bottom pour ladles as well as the future trends in automated pouring devices and the application of new Foseco nozzle technology. 

INCREASING THE CONSISTENCY OF IRON CASTING PROPERTIES AND REDUCING FOUNDRY REJECTS BY THE USE OF FERROLAB V THERMAL ANALYSIS EQUIPMENT

Thermal analysis is key to producing iron castings with consistent quality over time. However, the current Thermal Analysis systems in the market are too complicated for most foundry’s operators to use on a daily basis. For this purpose, Foseco has developed FERROLAB V - a simpler and more robust equipment to be used by operators that is easy to interpret yet providing the most relevant information to assure the quality of the castings.
