Moulding materials for metal casting

Moulding materials are very important in casting production. The process of casting in sand moulds ensures the outer surface of the part. Internal channels and complex geometries inside the cast component are also formed by the placement of cores.

This webinar provides a general overview of moulding materials used in cast component manufacturing by sand casting. You will learn about different moulding aggregates, their physical attributes and the important properties required to be controlled for successful mould and core production. The webinar also reviews the most prevalent moulding mixture types, their constituents, essential features and areas of applications

Date: Mar. 11, 2021

Time: 10:00-11:00 (+ 30 min group discussion and networking)

After attending this webinar you will know more about:

  • Overview of moulding aggregates and their attributes
  • Most prevalent moulding mixtures used in cast component manufacturing
  • Essential features and areas of application of moulding mixtures
  • Moulding and coremaking in a foundry from an expert point of view

This webinar is specifically useful for Foundry Engineers working in the area of Sand Casting. End user of cast components, supplier of moulding materials are also welcomed. Everyone with a general interest in moulding and coremaking can learn more by attending this webinar.

This is the first of 3 webinars on Moulding Materials. In the next webinars (during 2021/22) we will focus more attention on the thermophysical properties of moulding aggreagates and the high temperature behavior of chemically bonded core sands and their role in casting defect formation.
