FOUNDRY & FORGING

Foundries & forge shops typically require a lot of manpower for day to day operations. The harsh environmental conditions are also not preferred by operators and the fatigue sets in after a few hours of continuous duty. For this reason, foundries experience high operator turnover. Foundries are constantly looking for new ways to improve productivity and quality.Foundries & forge shops typically require a lot of manpower for day to day operations. The harsh environmental conditions are also not preferred by operators and the fatigue sets in after a few hours of continuous duty. For this reason, foundries experience high operator turnover. Foundries are constantly looking for new ways to improve productivity and quality.

Foundry specification robots are the preferred option for these conditions. They come with IP 67 protection for the entire arm and can withstand the hot and dusty conditions.  They have special seals to prevent dust and micro particles from entering. Heat shields  and jackets can be provided to the 4th, 5th and 6th axis of the robots for additional protection.  The robot controllers also come with special filters to keep out the dust. 

Some of the areas that can be automated in foundries are

I

Sand Casting - Casting fettling, Sand core handling

I

Forge shops – Hot and cold forge press tending

I

PDC – Component extraction, die spraying , component trimming, de-gating and fettling

I

Investment Casting - Dipping of shell moulds into ceramic slurry, refractory sand coating

I

GDC – Ladling and part extraction

I

Aluminium smelters – Ingot handling and palletizing

The benefits of robots is that they are designed to work 24/7 in these harsh conditions. Consistent output means better customer satisfaction. The typical ROI is around 3-4 years.
