New software for simulating sand coremaking and corebox designs, including several core making processes, in combination with traditional casting process simulation software, significantly improves casting quality and cost.
The correct design of gating and risering is essential for a foundry to be successful in the production of high-quality castings. As customers demand that the lead-time for new parts be as short as possible, foundries that can produce sound castings from the very start have a distinct advantage: A proper rigging system design is the critical element to making this happen....More
VR and technical 3D animations allow metalcasting engineering teams to collaborate efficiently at the earliest stages to ensure a design is exactly what is wanted, to ensure better products and processes for production....More

B&L Information Systems is introducing a "customer relationship management" module for its Odyssey 5.0 ERP platform. CRM is one of several improvements and new functions available to users of Odyssey 5.0 MR2, now in general availability....More
Kirsh Foundry wanted to increase efficiency and productivity, enable access to real-time information, and further decrease its dependence on paper. By automating more of its manufacturing processes and reducing its reliance on paper with a single ERP, Kirsh has optimized operations and boosted employee productivity. And Odyssey ERP software by B&L Information Systems has helped Kirsh to improve quality control and reduce internal scrap rate by 40%. Find out how....More
Both pH and ADV testing of foundry sands indicate acidity and basicity, but in different ways. Foundry sand pH and ADV can change as the sand is used and reclaimed. Both pH and ADV are useful lab tests to indicate changes in sand and changes in binder reactivity you will experience....More
