October 20 – 21, 2015 : Casting Defect Analysis #13-16
In order to determine the true root cause of a casting defect and select the proper corrective action, a systematic evaluation method must be applied. Implementing the wrong solution can cost the foundry in terms of runtime, cost, waste, safety, reduced return on investment or profit, sales and expertise. The intention of this course is for participants to become proficient in applying a ten step procedure that will enable them to analyze and reduce metalcasting defects by correctly identifying defects and their root causes, and determining appropriate corrective actions. This course is applicable to sand molding processes (green, nobake, coldbox, shell).
