Case studies from 2009 / 2010

The following two are about identifying the important process variables and optimising processes accordingly.

Residual wax in lost-wax shells on casting quality => best optimisation

"Crust" formed by 50Ni50Cr melts - limiting the problems it causes

In next two cases, costly and troublesome environmental equipment was avoided by eliminating the initial problem.

Eliminating dust emission by tool selection at lost-wax foundry knock-out

Eliminating smoke emission by system-of-work for l-w shell prefire

Fabricating a tool needed for safe working in minutes

New hot casting lifting tool fabricated in minutes

Clear-thinking production data analysis rapidly suggests astonishing goal for process scrap-rate

Analysis of production data regarding scrap-rate
