HIPing – A potent post casting treatment for high integrity aluminium castings R.M.PILLAI
Regional Research Laboratory (CSIR), India
67th World Foundry Congress

The increasing use of high integrity Al castings for repeated loading applications warrants improved fatigue properties as well. The principal cause for the lower fatigue properties and reliability of aluminium castings is the presence of defects and inhomogenities, which are the preferred fatigue initiation sites. Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIPing) is a powerful post casting treatment for eliminating defects like shrinkage porosity and hyd...

Production of ductile iron castings without feeders Rudolf Val. Sillén*
* NovaCast Technologies AB, Sweden
67th World Foundry Congress

The paper focuses on the mechanisms behind shrinkages in cast iron and how they can be avoided. Grey and ductile iron are unique casting alloys due to their solidification behaviour. During solidification the alloys initially contract when the temperature drops from the pouring temperature to the liquidus temperature. This contraction must always be compensated for by supply of feed metal from the gating system and often also from a feede...

Aerospace Castings – The Future Challenge David E. Jakstis
Spirit Aerosystems Wichita, Kansas USA
67th World Foundry Industry

Castings have been employed on the earliest airplanes produced and continue to contribute to the structural systems of aircraft today. With the competitive drive to reduce aircraft costs, castings have been able to provide production solutions that reduce manufacturing costs, reduce part requirements, reduce assembly cycle time, and even reduce the weight. Despite these contributions, there has been a reluctance to design aircraft with c...

Light alloys
Effect of melting and casting conditions on aluminium metal quality Derya DISPINAR, John CAMPBELL
Department of Metallurgy and Materials, University of Birmingham, UK.
67th World Foundry Congress

A study in a secondary alloy ingot producing plant was targeted to investigate the metal quality change in the holding furnace during secondary remelting of aluminum alloy LM24 (Al-8Si-3Cu-Fe). The investigation was an attempt to understand the effect of (i) the use of diffusers (porous plugs integrated into the body of the furnace) and (ii) casting techniques involving different degrees of turbulence. Casting density and bifilm index we...
