Metal Casting Workshop

Metal Casting Workshop

Technician:Hamid Zohrevand

  • Introduction

This workshop is suitable for those who wish to learn a number of mold-making and casting processes from the fundamental principles of how to produce a multi-piece mould and casting parts. They will then go on to produce a range of different moulds and casts including green sand, dray sand. Sodium-Silicate-CO2 mould and, plaster casting, lost foam casting, semi-solid casting, and rheo-casting. In the workshop we can achieve some materials mould and foundry and as well as solidification tests, including sand finesse number (AFS), strength of green, dry and baked sand (mould materials), sand moisture, sand clay, sand permeability. There are a lot of equipments in this workshop including one induction furnace (20kg), two electrical furnaces (15-35kg), one torch furnace (50kg), which all of the furnaces can be coupled on a data acquisition system one rheo-casting machine (2kg), two thermal fatigue machine, sand rammer, sieves shaker, sand permeability meter, shear and compression strength machine for molding and core sand.
