In the sand and gravity die casting process, the correct selection of mold and casting materials has a decisive influence on the properties and quality of the castings.
At Fraunhofer IGCV, various test rigs and a decoring plant on an industrial scale are available to investigate the decoring behavior of sand binder systems.
With the data value stream analysis developed at Fraunhofer IGCV, the relevant parameters can be identified by means of selective data analyses and targeted on-site process analyses.
Fraunhofer IGCV works on the development of novel aluminum alloys, which are characterized by enhanced mechanical properties.
The project Schichtbau² deals with the automation of processes by unconventional, cleanable mold splitting with indirect additive manufacturing.
Quality assurance in casting technology is achieved through AI-based anomaly detection in computed tomography images.
The core component printhead is monitored and examined for anomalies during the binder jetting process to prevent errors.
