When a normal sinusoidal wave becomes distorted, it contains the original waveform - the fundamental - and also a series of higher-frequency sinusoidal waveforms that are multiples of the original waveform frequency. Know more about harmonics to improve induction melting results.
When the normal sinusoidal wave that feeds ordinary electrical appliances becomes distorted, it not only contains the original waveform, the fundamental, but also a series of higher-frequency sinusoidal waveforms that are multiples of the original waveform frequency. Harmonic distortion could be defined as the deviation of the voltage and/or current waveforms from the fundamental waveform....More
Farmers and metalcasters are more alike than it may seem at first, and both deserve every consideration for easy and assured availability of resources and respect. To justify this we have deliberated on similarities between their two different avocations, with the purpose of persuading foundrymen and to add a moment of levity to the otherwise a dry routine of challenges we face every day. We hope it will bring some amusement to you, too.
Foundries that want to improve casting yield and casting should evaluate direct pouring cups, filters, and riser sleeves that - along with pouring best practices - can support both product and process improvement goals....More
A quick and easy way to extend mold or core machine uptime is to use a fast, efficient metal cleaner to remove residual binder and sand build-up on a pattern or mold/tool faces. Newly formulated metal cleaners not only will ensure that the tooling is clean, to provide the ideal surface to produce a core or mold, but will help keep vents clear and open....More
