Feeding and Filtration for Aluminum Foundries
The methoding area will highlight the optimal use of foam filters, die coating and feeding systems in sand and gravity die casting applications. Applications will be shown for aluminum and copper base castings demonstrating excellent yield combined with improved casting quality.
Foseco will launch the FEEDEX NF1 range of exothermic feeders designed for aluminum applications. The sleeve material is highly exothermic, provides a quick ignition and has a high strength and due to its excellent feeding performance, manual application of exothermic powders is avoided thereby reducing emissions.
The new range of DYCOTE SAFEGUARD products are Nano-ceramic top coatings to be applied on top of the existing insulating DYCOTE base coating to increase the lifetime up to 300% (depending on application).
The longevity of a die coating is essential for the die casting process. The longer lifetime leads to reduced interruptions for touch-up and therefore increased productivity.
Finally, new case studies of a filter and sleeve combination with conventional running and gating systems used in high quality, technically demanding applications will be displayed.
All relevant exhibits will feature simulations using the most recent version of the Foseco Pro Module for MAGMASOFT.
