Improving foundry efficiency and traceability

Complete process control for compacted graphite or spheroidal graphite iron (SG or CGI)

The CGI/SG process is a complete process control system for the production of CGI or SG iron. The process is based on high precision thermal analysis technique, using a thermal analysis cup and analyzing software, including a complete process control, documentation and data handling with the help of special software.

System Overview

  • Fully automated process control using cored wire machines
  • Applicable for ladle and pouring furnace process
  • High precision in casting properties
  • Sound castings due to stable metallurgy
  • Single step method for high production throughput
  • Cost efficient in running expenses
  • Metallurgical support in every aspect
  • All process data is online visible through the foundry
  • Modules for laboratory data handling and image analysis are available in one package

Process Optimization

SG control overview

By implementing our automated systems to control the SG and CGI production you achieve improved metallurgy and consistent product quality. Production costs will be minimized by the effective usage of additions and the reduction of scrap caused by metallurgical defects. Using the WireMaster and BulkMaster systems, the production can be automated minimizing human influence and resulting in a more reliable process. A system solution from one source eliminates cost-intensive interfaces.

Our experienced engineers support the implementation of a process control systems in your foundry. Beside that we give individual advice on micro and macro porosities, chunky graphite, carbides and other.

We analyse the issues in co-operation with your engineers and work out an approach to a satisfactory solution.

Metallographic Analysis

As a service provider, our laboratory offers metallographic examinations for series monitoring and for special investigations, e.g. during a process introduction. The high throughput enables us to offer attractive pricing. We are happy to compare our data with the measurement results of your company's own laboratory for you.

Trainings

We provide seminars and training courses to improve your staff’s competence.

The training courses take place every six months at our location in Mönchengladbach. On request, a training course for several persons can also be held in your foundry.
