New sands and eco-friendly binders from our friends

Our friends from RusFoundryConsulting brought a new theme for the foundry community. We present: for eliminating casting defects in the form of cuts, cracks, scabs, we offer artificial aluminosilicate sand for complex cores and thin-walled casting. Due to its characteristics, the sand does not have a linear expansion. It is also important to note that in order to improve the ecological parameters of emissions to the environment during the molding and casting into disposable forms, RFC began testing geopolymer binders in the Russian Federation, which is used in many European and Asian countries. Inorganic binders are suitable for all types of sands and are used as self-hardening mixtures and with CO2- hardening in sandblasting machines. Simple decoring, opportunity to use 100% recycled sand and other characteristics that have a positive effect on the cost of casting. Additional information can be obtained by sending a request to v.arkhipov@f-consult.org

Looking forward to seeing you at the 11thFoundry Concilium due to take place in Chelyabinsk on December 6-7 It is by now a good tradition for NPP Group to organize in Chelyabisk annual international conferences known as foundry conciliums in the capacity of general sponsor. After a year's hiatus, the 11thFoundry Concilium is set to take place on December 6-7. More than 200 chief executives, leading engineers and best metallurgists representing iron and steel foundries of Russia, CIS countries and Europe are due to have roundtables to discuss industry issues, share their knowledge, experience and expertise in such areas as charge preparation, refractory installation techniques and applications, graphite production and graphitization, melt analysis, QA/QC, refining, modification, carburization, and many others. This will be the first time that a professional skills contest among foundry workers will be held within the framework of a foundry conference. Besides exhibiting their metallurgical skills and knowledge, the contestants will also demonstrate the capabilities of their foundries. They will be required to complete tasks originating from real-life production situations, which will make it possible for the other participants in the conference to find more effective solutions to their top-priority problems and establish ties with new skilled and efficient partners. And of course, winners will receive precious awards and prizes from the sponsors of the 11thFoundry Concilium and recognition from the foundry community.
