This validation will compare actual short shots of a large, 38-lb, aluminum casting with simulation results. Many thanks to <a href="http://www.versevo.com/" target="_blank">Versevo Inc.</a> for providing the part and their facility to carry out the experimental portion of this study.</p> <p>Versevo Inc. (formerly Pattern Technologies) provides a wide range of products and services including low pressure permanent mold castings, lost foam tooling, and diecast tooling. As part of this exercise, we will also show how to reduce simulation runtimes and discuss what parameters are important to accurately model LPDC processes.</p> </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://foundrymag.com/low-pressure-die-casting-validation-versevo" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://foundrymag.com/low-pressure-die-casting-validation-versevo#comments Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:41:00 +0000 20661 at http://foundrymag.com High-Density Insulating Firebrick http://foundrymag.com/meltpour/high-density-insulating-firebrick <div class="node-body article-body">Morgan Advanced Materials’ new JM-HD insulating firebrick combines kaolin and high-purity alumina. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://foundrymag.com/meltpour/high-density-insulating-firebrick" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://foundrymag.com/meltpour/high-density-insulating-firebrick#comments Melt/Pour New Products Tue, 25 Aug 2015 14:39:00 +0000 20641 at http://foundrymag.com <p>&ldquo;The new range is a further example of how Morgan is recognizing and responding to changing customer and market requirements with the introduction of new, higher-specification IFBs,&rdquo; commented Massimiliano Marchetti.&nbsp;</p> 3D Printing Development Kit http://foundrymag.com/new-products/3d-printing-development-kit <div class="node-body article-body">Viridis3D LLC released the RAM10 open materials development kit for metalcasterrs’ additive manufacturing projects. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://foundrymag.com/new-products/3d-printing-development-kit" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://foundrymag.com/new-products/3d-printing-development-kit#comments Materials Molds/Cores New Products Tue, 25 Aug 2015 12:33:00 +0000 20651 at http://foundrymag.com <p>The first Viridis3D RAM10 materials development kit was installed for sand-binder research projects at Palmer Manufacturing &amp; Supply, Springfield, OH.</p> Materion Delivers F-35 Investment Castings, Wins New Orders http://foundrymag.com/moldscores/materion-delivers-f-35-investment-castings-wins-new-orders <div class="node-body article-body">Materion delivered its first aluminum-beryllium investment castings to Lockheed Martin for the F-35 Electro-Optical Targeting System. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://foundrymag.com/moldscores/materion-delivers-f-35-investment-castings-wins-new-orders" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://foundrymag.com/moldscores/materion-delivers-f-35-investment-castings-wins-new-orders#comments Molds/Cores News Tue, 25 Aug 2015 04:46:00 +0000 20631 at http://foundrymag.com <p>The EOTS is a lightweight, multi-function system for air-to-air and air-to-surface targeting that attaches to the F-35 Lightning II&#39;s fuselage and is linked to the aircraft&#39;s integrated central computer through a high-speed fiber-optic interface.</p> Researching Scaled Up Vacuum-Aided Aluminum Diecasting http://foundrymag.com/meltpour/researching-scaled-vacuum-aided-aluminum-diecasting <div class="node-body article-body">LIFT’s new research initiative aims to develop vacuum-aided diecasting methods for aerospace, defense, and automotive manufacturing.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://foundrymag.com/meltpour/researching-scaled-vacuum-aided-aluminum-diecasting" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://foundrymag.com/meltpour/researching-scaled-vacuum-aided-aluminum-diecasting#comments Melt/Pour News Tue, 25 Aug 2015 03:29:00 +0000 20621 at http://foundrymag.com <p>A 250-mt Buhler diecasting machine, set up with a Metamag furnace and melt transfer system for magnesium diecasting at The Ohio State University&rsquo;s College of Engineering metalcasting lab.</p> ASK Chemicals at GIFA 2015 http://foundrymag.com/gifa/ask-chemicals-gifa-2015 <div class="node-body gallery-body">ASK Chemicals, foundries all over the world will find high quality products and full service solutions to meet their rising expectations. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://foundrymag.com/gifa/ask-chemicals-gifa-2015" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://foundrymag.com/gifa/ask-chemicals-gifa-2015#comments GIFA Wed, 19 Aug 2015 18:57:00 +0000 20441 at http://foundrymag.com Inductotherm at GIFA 2015 http://foundrymag.com/gifa/inductotherm-gifa-2015 <div class="node-body gallery-body">ONE TEAM. 10 Global Brands. 50 Global Product lines. 40 manufacturing facilities located in 23 countries.
