This automated line at a Mexico-based metalcasting facility is used to produce engine cylinder blocks. ...

The casting supplier, Custom Aluminum Foundry Ltd.,Cambridge, Ontario, Canada, completed 180 of these 165-lb. aluminum screens to add a decorative and symbolic touch to a $54 million dollar building project in Canadas capital. ...

The assembly of one casting and two steel bearing races is a conversion from a 10-piece welded steel fabrication. The casting for the printing industry resulted in a 15% weight reduction and 20% cost savings. The casting supplier, Thomas Machine and Foundry, Marysville, Wash., produced the part without the use of cores and machined and assembled it in-house. ...

End-Use Industry and Function: Experimental plasma development research for the Dynamo Program at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, Wis.Material: A356.2 aluminum.Dimensions: 128-in. diameter, 64-in. height; 6,800 lbs.Casting Process: Nobake.Summary of Features and Benefits: First considered as a stainless steel fabrication, the cast aluminum sphere saved eight to 12 months of production time and $1 million--a 66% cost savings. All integral features were cast in the design, regardless of geometry. One of the most critical requirements was the installation of water lines traveling the circumference of the part 32 times. ...

This marine engine manifold, made by AC Foundry, Battle Creek, Mich., was converted from two gray iron castings to a single aluminum casting weighing 28 lbs., resulting in a weight savings per motor of 38 lbs. ...

In the nobake molding process, refractory sand is coated with a binder and a liquid catalyst. As the binder and catalyst combine, a chemical reaction hardens the sand. Here, the refractory wash is applied. ...

The lubrication system component for large, off-road vehicles provided reductions in cost and lead time over the previously produced fabrication through a complex core assembly and tight process controls. ...

Eck’s Hybrid H40/50 EP System Stator Housing holds the two-mode parallel stator assembly used in Allison Transmission’s H40/50 EP hybrid system. The casting is a complex aluminum design that offers tight concentricity tolerances across multiple large core assemblies, multiple cast-in features, and zero-porosity and no-leak customer requirements. The aluminum part weighs 116 lbs., measures 18 x 18 x 21 in. and was produced using the nobake process with low pressure mold filling. It was previously a fabrication. ...

End-Use Industry and Function: Used in ice breaker equipment for street cleaning/clearing. Material: 80-55-06 ductile iron.Dimensions: 16-in. diameter; 33 lbs.Casting Process: Green sand.Summary of Features and Benefits: Converted from a fabrication, the casting saved 100 hours of welding per unit and cut cost by 20%, reduced weight and improved the part's appearance. Teeth on the wheel are replaceable. ...
