FOSECO ANKIROS 2016 Congress presentations are as listed below:

>> Iron Turbulence Analysis via Foundry Water Model II: Advanced Testing

ABSTRACT

The relationships between iron casting stream quality and pouring system (stopper rod, nozzle) condition are empirically known, but can now be more precisely characterized. Through the use of a specialized foundry water model coupled with a novel optical sensing system capable of analyzing stream turbulence, realistic iron pouring scenarios can be simulated. In Part II, additional insight was gained through a series of model upgrades allowing for critical testing of more variables with regard to stream turbulence. Previous experiments were also revisited to produce more statistically reliable results.

>> STELEX ZR ULTRA - A New Generation of Ceramic Foam Filters Providing Real Opportunities for Cleaner Steel Castings

ABSTRACT

There is a clear market need for a steel casting filtration system that provides a consistent performance in demanding applications together with a desire for enhanced filtration efficiency. The result is the development and introduction of an improved zirconia based ceramic foam filter to compliment the STELEX product range.

>> Aluminium low-pressure wheel production – end to end solutions

ABSTRACT

There has been huge growth in the production of Aluminium Road Wheels over the past decade with the great majority being manufactured by the low-pressure diecasting process. The quality requirements of these safety critical castings are as high as any Aluminium component made today and Foseco has developed a suite of products aimed at improving the quality of the castings produced while also improving the profitability of the process. This concept of an Integrated Solution Package for a particular casting and process will be further developed in the future.
