Automation of the core sand preparation of Vostermans Alu Foundries
In order to improve the quality and efficiency, Vostermans Alu Foundries invested in further automation of the preparation of the core sand. Core sand is used for producing complex castings which have holes in the product.
The new installation is used for filling the sandcasting machines, which produce the sand moulds for the sandcasting process. On the upper side of the two available sandcasting machines a new movable blender is being installed, which mixes thoroughly the mixture of silver sand and binder and fully automates the release of this mixture. Besides the accurate and constant mixing and the automation of the process, benefits are also achieved in the quality of the produced moulds and getting the moulds out after production.
