Case study NETFrame® – Truck-Axle
Production manager | December 12, 2018
Problem: A large side riser is employed having a contact area of 60 x 120 mm split along the joint line. Due to the size of the contact it is not possible to remove the riser with traditional mechanical means safely without risk of the contact breaking into the casting, meaning that the casting must be transported to a separate work area for riser removal by cutting.
Challenge: Removal of the feeder residue within the regular process, no movement of castings to additional cutting stations.
