rct takes layer-by-layer approach to mold, core production.
Several steps of this process provide the opportunity to get these precious seconds.
Alternatively, steps can be completely eliminated in order to significantly reduce production time.
This can be achieved by skipping the mold making process and producing sand type and sand core directly from CAD data.
The idea of this fast prototype is not fresh for North American metal casters, but the process of automatically producing molds and core layers --by-
The layer from CAD data is.
The partition of ProMetal $ ProMetal this month.
ExtrudeHone, Irwin, Pa.
Capable of direct conversion 3-
D. put the solid model data into the mold and core, up to 59x29x27. (
No pattern or manual settings.
The system is capable of producing multiple molds or cores at the same time.
This fast casting technology (RCT)
Currently, the company operates only one metal foundry in the United StatesS.
Allows metal casters to skip mold manufacturing, direct access to the mold and core making, saving valuable time.
The technology can be used to cast ordinary black, aluminum and copperbased alloys.
The S15 includes an unloading station where the actual construction is carried out, which automatically removes the finished mold or core from the work box.
The system is also equipped with sand mixer, construction platform, roller conveyor and industrial suction equipment.
The process first loads CAD data onto a computer monitor.
Then convert the data to.
CLI file, it will be 3-
D object into a sequence of slices. The .
The CLI file is then transferred to S15 via a standard network connection.
A few minutes after the design is completed, a randomized controlled trial can begin to make a mold or core component.
The assembly process is free through \"solid-
\"Where a mold or core part is created, layer-by-layer.
Send bulk sand directly into the mixer using compression (
Such as vacuum conveyor)
Then mix with the hardening agent according to the requirements of the system process Station.
The sand type used is the typical sand type of metal casting equipment bonded with furan resin.
The sand is transferred to the work box, where the production process begins with lowering the cast iron construction platform.
According to CAD data, each layer of the mold or core is evenly distributed on a given thickness.
System creation continuous crossover
Parts of the mold and core, allowing to create cut-outs, zero eating water corners, re-
Surface textures, fonts, and graphics.
The adhesive is then made by using industrial grade
The grade print head of the selected position determined according to the CAD data.
The hardening agent contained in the sand hardens the adhesive and creates the object from top to next layer.
After completion, the work box slides out the outside of the machine on the power delivery system and moves to the unloading station, at the unloading station, industrial-
The grade vacuum cleaner separates the parts from the supporting sand.
The mold and core can then be poured immediately without further processing.
Since the molding process has been eliminated, the technology can save time and can usually be measured in a few weeks. Select No. 001 at www. moderncasting. com/info [
