Online Training on Defect-free Sand Castings through Right Part and Process design

Date : 3 to 4 December, 2020

Time : 1400 Hrs to 1700 Hrs


Several different methods such as casting, powder metallurgy, forging and machining are available to shape metals into useful products. One of the oldest process is sand casting which basically involves pouring molten metal into a sand mould cavity, where upon solidification it takes the shape of the cavity. Beauty of this process is, any complicated shape in any metal can be casted. Sand casting technique is the most cost-effective and design flexible in foundry. Innovative and well-planned management of sand is essential for maintaining quality of the product and process. Success of getting defect free sand casting depends on gating and riser design and other process control in the foundry. Defect in casting also can be prevented by applying DFM techniques for casting and effective use of simulation. Knowledge on all these topic is must for foundry engineer, casting design engineer and supplier quality engineers.

Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organizing a webinar on “Defect-free Sand Castings through Right Part and Process design”.
