Pot and Ladle Coating

Posted by Hill and Griffith Company on Mar 8, 2017 12:44:28 PM

Non-wetting Insulating Coating for Green Sand and all Metalcasting applications

DESCRIPTION:

When applied as a coating to ladles, runners, metalworking tools, pyrometer tubes, etc. POT AND LADLE COATING acts as a non-wetting insulating coating allowing liquid metal to roll off. This prevents tool attack by liquid metal and extends the life of the coated articles. It works well with zinc, lead, aluminum, and copper-base alloys.

2017 Metalcasting Outlook, FOUNDRY Magazine Report Review

Posted by Hill and Griffith Company on Feb 21, 2017 3:55:00 PM

(This week's post is a review of FOUNDRY MANAGEMENT AND TECHNOLOGY Magazines' 2017 Metalcasting Outlook. You need to register to read the full report, "2017 Metalcasting Outlook.")

A complex industry like metalcasting never matches overall business trends. It has its own operating rules, its own advantages, and its own vulnerabilities that confound the perspective of finance-based analysis. 

Each year, during September and October, FM&T surveys metalcasters to measure the outlook of men and women responsible North America’s foundries and diecasting plants. We seek to identify the problems they face in their businesses and the economy, to learn what plans they're making for the coming business cycle, and to understand better they're expectations for the year ahead.

We surveyed readers by email over a period of six weeks, with a detailed study that focuses on the metalcasting business, its risks and prospects, and the internal and external factors shaping its progress. Their perspective — presented here — is valuable not only because of their insights and advantages, but because they occupy positions that are critical to the prospects of so many other elements of the global industrial economy.

Green Sand Foundry Metalcasting Process

Posted by Hill and Griffith Company on Jan 31, 2017 4:18:04 PM

(This week's post comes from Vulcan Engineering Company's web site. They published this excellent description of the Green Sand Foundry Metalcasting Process. Learn more by going to their site.)

The term Green Sand denotes the presence of moisture in molding sand and indicates that the mold is not baked or dried. Raw sand is mined and then processed to give it a consistent distribution of grain sizing. When processed for molding, organic clays are added to bond the grains together.

Green Sand Control Best Practices for a Metalcasting Foundry

Posted by Hill and Griffith Company on Dec 28, 2016 5:14:14 PM

(This week's post is from a March 2015 article that ran in MODERN CASTING by Al Jacobson, Grede-St. Cloud, St. Cloud, Minnesota.)

Regular sand tests performed at Grede-St. Cloud helped identify variations and reduce their causes to achieve better operation.

(Click here to see the story as it appears in the March issue of Modern Casting.)

Green sand control best practices in a metalcasting facility relies on reducing the variation in key measurable aspects of sand properties. All metalcasting facilities make good sand at times and bad sand at times. Successful plants make good sand most of the time.
