  • March 4, 2015 : 4F Committee Meeting

  • March 10, 2015 : Aluminum 101: An Introduction to Aluminum & Aluminum Casting Processes #20-15

    An introductory course covering the characteristics and properties of aluminum, alloying elements and their general applications and considerations for working with aluminum cast parts. This course also covers melting technology and foundry casting technology, and looks at the decision making process behind specific technologies used.

  • March 11 – 12, 2015 : Aluminum Melting 201 #21-15

    This 2 day laboratory course, held at Virginia Tech’s VT Fire Lab, introduces the basic principles and practices of aluminum melting for use in castings. The course will examine furnace charging, furnace temperature and its effect on the melt, and examine in-furnace treatments to reduce impurities. Melt sampling, transfer and pouring methods and the corresponding equipment will be analyzed, with laboratory demonstration and practice of various techniques throughout the course.

  • March 11 – 12, 2015 : Iron Melting 201 #22-15

    This course provides a detailed coverage of iron melting and related processes. Topics include charge materials selection; the understanding of cost, value, and risk; information covering electric and cupola melting procedures; the relationship between molten metal and refractory lining; sampling and checks to determine iron quality; common effects of key major element adjustments; iron refining technology/treatment practices; and safety procedures.
