  • Slide 15 - Foseco offers a package of consumables and equipment for the production of clean, reproducible metal quality and uniform microstructure. Concerning ferrous and non-ferrous foundries, metallurgical properties have to be controlled during the production of modern castings and other ferrous and non-ferrous alloys. Foseco is at the leading edge of industry efforts to improve the metallurgical performance of castings offering a package of consumables and equipment for the production of clean, reproducible metal quality in a range of ferrous and non ferrous alloys. The range of products we supply offer advantages in safety, health and environmental issues, automation and process control and productivity. The acquisition of SERT provides access to systems for the measurement and control of pouring castings thereby enhancing the treatment portfolio. Metal Treatment
  • Slide 16 - Acquisition of SERT Metal SERT Metal acquired in December 2011 The company is based in Lyon, France Foundry product range Automatic pouring & flow management with complete data recording In-stream temperature measurement with auto-alignment on stream Inoculation checking system with alarms and video replay In-stream inoculant feeding system with auto-calibration
  • Slide 17 - Today’s melt shop is under increasing pressure to improve productivity, temperature control, metal cleanliness. Following the integration with Vesuvius, Foseco is now able to offer a full range of refractory systems for iron, steel, aluminium and investment foundries. A broad range of monolithic and pre-cast products are available and Foseco personnel are on hand to offer advice on product selection, maintenance and design. Ladle linings Furnace linings and castables Stoppers and nozzles Precast refractory shapes Melt Shop Refractories
  • Slide 18 - Crucibles are used in a wide range of melting and holding applications for non ferrous alloys, particularly aluminium, copper and zinc. Each of these applications requires a crucible with specific properties to maximise productivity and minimise energy costs. The Foseco range of crucibles offers a solution for all non ferrous melting and holding applications from high durability crucibles for heavy duty applications to high thermal efficiency crucibles to minimise energy consumption. Our experienced Application Engineers are able to advise on the selection and installation of crucibles for optimum performance and productivity. Crucibles
  • Slide 19 - Feeding system products are a range of insulating, exothermic-insulating or exothermic sleeves designed to extend the solidification times of feeder heads. Application of the correct breaker core can reduce the contact area between feeder and casting by as much as 75%, significantly reducing or even eliminating expensive fettling operations. The application of Foseco feeding solutions avoid shrinkage defects and improve casting yields, reducing the amount of non-productive metal poured. Significant savings can also be made in fettling and cleaning operations. Our methoding engineers help and advise customers in designing and optimising the way a casting is made. Years of practical experience combined with state-of the-art simulation support helps ensure ‘Right First Time’ design. Feeding Systems
  • Slide 20 - Foseco's range of foundry filters are used in the production of castings subject to heavy wear and tear but also to safety critical parts such as brake components, crankshafts, wheel hubs, suspension components and steering knuckles. The application of filtration in the production of such castings enables the foundry to achieve the full potential of the mechanical and dynamic properties of the alloy chosen. Conventional pouring systems are frequently unable to retain sufficient slag material and reaction products. Even when it is technically feasible, the design of the running system required may be inefficient and uneconomic. Correctly selected and applied, Foseco foundry filters remove inclusions and optimise running system design. Casting properties are enhanced, performance and productivity are increased, and costs are lowered. Filtration and Gating
  • Slide 21 - By careful selection of refractory fillers and rheological technology, Foseco coatings are designed to deposit the correct coating structure onto a given substrate, to ensure cast surface integrity. The range of products have been specifically engineered so that they can be applied by dipping, flow coating, brushing, swabbing and spraying. Foseco offers a range of coatings for sand moulds and cores, specialty coatings, and coatings for jobbing iron, steel and non-ferrous. Coatings
  • Slide 22 - Foseco offers a broad range of organic and inorganic mould and core binder systems. Organic binders are almost exclusively synthetic resins, which are cured by the addition of a separate hardener or catalyst. Inorganic binders are based on sodium silicates that have been optimised to accommodate the varying casting processes, thus guaranteeing best decomposition. Foseco offers: Self setting resin systems Gas setting resin systems Sodium silicates Additives, glues, sealants and release agents Binders
