Casting without models

Casting without models

By means of machining a previously compacted sand block with a robot

In response to the traditional processes in use for cast iron models, IDEKO Technology Centre, together with other partners, has developed the technology chain that enables the use of manufacturing 4.0 in the metal casting industry of non-serialised parts without the use of intermediate models. To achieve this, the casting mould is no longer based on a model but instead made by machining a compacted sand block. The previously compacted sand is machined using a CNC-controlled robot with special tools for sand. This results in a considerable time gain in obtaining the castings, apart from the process being more economical, with lower consumption of materials, less polluting and capable of producing parts of superior quality. More advantages of this project are the possibility to include a mould check prior to casting to reduce the risk of faulty casting.
