Atmosphere filled with smoke ; and enclosure where workers breath noxious fumes. Note: For small orders as well as production of large sized castings, mechanisation is uneconomical and unpractical. On other hand complete mechanisation is profitable for mass production.
Automobile parts, electric motors, sewing machine. Elimination of time consuming manual operations such as mixing and preparing sands, preparing moulds and handling various foundry materials.
Advantage: it transports material which are too hot for belt conveyor. This type of conveyor is usually employed for distributing sand to workstations from an overhead through. It consist of buckets or containers of the drop bottom type which are run on an overhead monorail. It is used for carrying sand and other materials.
Empty flasks, moulding boards. It has two beams fixed on trestles of suitable height and supporting latterly arranged rollers above. Gravity type: There is no power supply. Mould needs to be pushed by workers. The beams may be fixed at slight inclination to facilitate the mould movement by gravity. Power driven: Variable speed electric motor is used for motion of rollers.
These are expensive. Worthwhile only in mass production system. It has pallets made of cast iron or steel plates mounted on wheels which can roll along narrow gauge track. The moulds are placed on the pallet and pushed manually. In case of continuous drives, however pallets may be connected by chainand driven from one end by power. Overhead conveyor Sometimes an overhead conveyor of monorail type is employed for transporting moulds.
The completed moulds are placed on the platform of conveyor and platform is carried to pouring area by overhead monorail. After the casting has solidified the same carrier is moved to shakeout section. Handling molten metal Two systems are commonly followed. The molten metal is transferred in laddles to this area with the help of travelling crane or hoist is poured into the stored moulds.
Handling of casting. Also, it is environment friendly. Quality of sand to be handled. Kind of binder and its quality eg. Synthetic, organic, inorganic, cement etc. Extent of mechanization used in foundry. Overall economics of sand recycling. Sand Preparation Equipment 1 Magnetic Separator. The rotating paddle consists of set of rods each having number of combing fingers arranged radially.
Moulding Processes According to method of preparation. Weights, manhole covers, drain covers. Stake Moulding. Machine Moulding Mould is made with the aid of some moulding machine. Then force of compaction required much higher times than conventional moulding machine. Core sands and core making Core is the portion of mould which forms the hollow interior of the casting or a hole through the casting. When casting is to have opening only at one side, and only one core print is available on the pattern, a balanced core is suitable.
B Cover Core. E Ram up core. Sometimes, the core is set with the pattern in the mould before the mould is rammed.
F Kiss Core. There is a drive that pushes the filament into the nozzle at a controlled rate. The nozzle follows a tool- path controlled by a computer-aided manufacturing CAM software package, and the part is built from the bottom up, one layer at a time. Stepper motors or servo motors are typically employed to move the extrusion head. A complete 3D object can be formed using this process. Designs are then immersed in a chemical bath in order to remove any excess resin.
Supports are created automatically during the preparation of 3D Computer Aided Design models and can also be made manually. Printing time can last anywhere from hours to more than a day. The more complex or, the less solid the object is , the faster and cheaper it can be made through additive manufacturing.
As soon as the part has printed, engineers may then begin testing its properties instead of waiting weeks or months for a prototype or part to come in. Depending on the part needed, other manufacturing processes may be significantly faster. While larger machines are available, they will come at a cost.
Suggested temperatures at which steel castings can be withdrawn from moulds are shown below. Mechanical shakeouts used for large scale work. Cleaning of Casting The operation of cutting off the unwanted parts, and cleaning and finishing the casting known as fettling. Fettling operation may be divided into different stages 1. Knocking out of dry sand cores. Removal of gates and risers. Removal of fins and unwanted projections.
Cleaning and smoothening of the surface. Repairing the castings. Removal of gates and risers The choice of method for removing gates and risers from casting depends on the size and the shape of casting and the type of metal. Specially for large sized castings where the risers and gates are very heavy.
Operation of removing unwanted metal fins, projections etc. In order that casting surface be clean and smooth, the adhering sand particles has to be removed. The various methods are. Tumbling ii. Tumbling with hydroblast iii.
Cleaning with compressed air impact Sand blasting iv. Cleaning with mechanical impact Shot blasting v. Arc air process vi.
The castings to be cleaned are put in large steel shell or barrel. Barrel is supported on horizontal trunnions and is rotated at a speed varying from rpm. When barrel is rotated it causes rubbing and peening action against each other, Thus not only the casting gets cleaned and polished but also the sharp edges and fins get eliminated.
Repairing the Castings Sometimes the castings get broken, bent or deformed during shakeout or because of rough handling. They are repaired by suitable means and put to use due to economical reasons unless the defects are such that they can not be remedied. It is suitable where sections to be welded are not too heavy. The flame temperatures are lower than that of the arc, so cooling rates are slow. Hence process is preferable where slow cooling rates are required.
Oxidizing flames is used for brasses and bronzes. Reducing or carburizing flame for high carbon and alloy steel, nickel alloys and other hard facing materials. Neutral flame for low carbon steels. LPG or natural gas can be used in place of acetylene where broad flame is desired. This is suited for welding copper base and aluminum alloys. Shielding provided by inert gas, such as helium. And argon for protection of the welding zone. It is most suitable for metals that tends to get quickly oxidized, eg.
Electrode wire is automatically fed and inert gas protects the metal from oxidation. The gases used are argon nitrogen etc. It is suitable for large sized steel castings and is economical where high speed operation is required.
Some amount of flux is melting and forming a slag and remaining slag can be reused. Ignition will be given externally. Heat : Used for melting of parent material. Emission during Melting operations. Metallic oxides 2.

Simultaneous Jolt Squeeze Molding Machines
The Jolt Squeeze Moulding Machine is suitable for batch production of single sided pattern plate and single flask moulding of small castings,can make cope flask and drag flask. The Jolt Squeeze Mouldin. The Jolt Squeeze Moulding Machine own simple air control system,easy operation,flexible use and convenient repair and maintenance. The worktable fall and collide with floating shock-iron,and the sand was tighted slightly, and then to compaction,get the top and bottom of sand mould are tight. The Jolt Squeeze Molding Machine made of sand mold are good quality, the basic requirement is also lower. Jolt Squeezing Molding Machine.
