Article Review: "The Road to Lightweighting: The Tech & Materials Leading the Way"

Posted by Hill and Griffith Company on Feb 19, 2019 2:58:16 PM

Lightweighting isn’t new to the auto industry, but it’s finally mature enough to make a significant impact on manufacturers, drivers and the whole planet.

Even if you’re not a car aficionado, you can see why the Chevy Corvette C2 — aka the Stingray — is re­vered among the pantheon of American automo­tive manufacturing. Sleek. Classy. And fast. Really, really fast. It’s everything a muscle car should be. But what you can’t immediately see is how innovative and ahead of its time it was at its 1953 release.

Chevy made the Corvette body from fiberglass rather than steel—and the difference shows on the stopwatch. A 1967 model with a 427 engine could accelerate from 0 to 60 in 4.7 seconds. This has a lot to do with the V8 engine, but the lightweight design provides that extra performance edge. It’s basic physics: Lighter vehicles require less power to move them faster. For Chevy, and any other automaker, it’s also basic economics.

Review of American Foundry Society's "Core Processes"

Posted by Hill and Griffith Company on Feb 5, 2019 3:45:49 PM

An editorial review of AFS's "Core Processes" Chapter from the "Casting Buyer's Guide"

Hill and Griffith specializes in compounds and coatings for Green Sand Foundry Process patterns and cores. This post highlights a few parts of the "Casting Buyer's Guide" chapter two on "Core Processes." With a better understanding of cores, you will understand our diverse product selection.
 
"One of the reasons castings are so widely used in all types of applications is due to the great design flexibility to form the internal shape of a casting which is inherent in a variety of processes available to produce a core.
 
The core, which is usually a pre-formed sand aggregate (metal for die casting), is inserted into the mold to shape the interior of a casting or that part of a casting which cannot be shaped by the pattern. The core is located and held in the mold by core pockets, formed by the pattern. In areas where the core may be thin in cross-section or require additional support to maintain metal wall thickness, chaplets are used.
