Case study NETSleeve® – machine component
Production Manager | May 05, 2019
Problem: A variety of mini-risers are used to produce castings with modulus ranging from 1.9 to 3.2 cm without breaker cores and with contacts from 40 to 65 mm. Due to the size of the contact, it is not possible to remove the riser with traditional mechanical means, forcing the foundry to adopt a lengthy cutting process.
Challenge: To efficiently remove the feeder residue by simple mechanical methods and eliminating the lengthy cutting process, allowing the customer to increase the number of castings processed per shift.
