Casting Metal Type:
The main objective was to gain overall control of their No Bake sand mixing system and enable them to reduce binder consumption. They wanted to improve the quality of their castings by reducing the overall process tolerance. An additional need was to significantly reduce mechanical problems.
They installed the MT Systems Resin Control System on one continuous mixer. This was the first of possibly 3 or 4 stages. The system was designed to give them the ability to control chemical additions with the confidence of repeatability and reliability.
