Defect analysis and trouble-shooting of casting defects

Date : 20 to 21 May, 2021

Time : 1340 Hrs to 1700 Hrs


Metal casting is one of the oldest manufacturing process, which basically involves pouring molten metal into a 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.
Metal casting is a complicated process with many process variables. There are numerous opportunities for things to go wrong in a casting operation, resulting in quality defects in the product. A casting defect is an undesired irregularity in a metal casting process. Some defects can be tolerated while others can be repaired, otherwise they must be eliminated. It is a great challenge to work on casting defects and eliminate them.

Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organizing a 2 day programme on “Defect Analysis and Troubleshooting of casting defects”.
