- Select the appropriate temperature and machine mode for casting each casting.
Our experience over the years has shown us that for each casting the most appropriate temperature and machine modes must be selected in order to facilitate the casting process and to improve productivity and quality. We carefully select the appropriate modes of the casting machine for each casting. Based on our many years of experience and the information gathered from the wide range of castings that have been produced in our foundry, we successfully make an analysis before starting the process of injection molding. The collected information is documented in the so-called technological map. Documenting the information for each cast element makes the analysis and organization of production extremely easy.
2. Regular deoxidation.
Aluminum is a material that is extremely susceptible to oxidation. In its molten form, oxides are regularly formed on the surface of the melt, which reduce the quality and are a prerequisite for bad castings. To avoid this, we rely on regular deoxidation by placing suitable fluxes for oxide cleaning in the melt. Since fluxes cannot clean the melt completely, we also rely on the help of inert gases, which do not affect the chemical composition of the melt.
3. Take a control sample before casting.
In order to avoid mistakes, before starting the casting process of each casting, from the foundry furnace, the so-called control sample is taken, which is given for spectrometric analysis in our laboratory. In this way, we guarantee that each casting has the right chemical composition.
4. Stock availability of ejectors.
One of the things that can lead to a delay in the execution of an order is the lack of timely response in the event of damage to any of the standardized elements in the mold. The ejectors are the most susceptible to damaged. In order to avoid long delivery times and thus delay our customers, we keep in stock almost the entire range of ejectors for the molds we work with. In this way, in the event of a fault, we can react quickly and resume the casting process in the same shift.
5. Operation in two-shift mode.
In order to be able to reduce the cost of the casting and to fulfill the customer orders on time, with a larger series we work in two shifts. Over the years, this regime has proven to be more energy-efficient and achieves better production results.
