Molding Sand Tests
Moisture control ensures the molding sand has the optimal water content, essential for proper compaction and mold formation.
Sieve Analysis (Sleeve Test)
Sieve analysis of molding sand ensures consistent particle size distribution, contributing to the quality and strength of the final casting.
Slump Test Control (Slump Test)
Slump tests on molding sand assess its workability and consistency, crucial for achieving accurate and reproducible molds.
Determination of Active Clay (Active Clay Test)
The active clay test identifies the proportion of active clay in molding sand, preventing issues such as poor mold permeability.
Burning Loss (Flammability Rating Test)
Burning loss tests measure the weight loss of molding sand during the casting process, providing insights into its stability and suitability for use.
Gas Permeability Test
Gas permeability tests evaluate the ability of molding sand to allow gases to escape during casting, ensuring the production of defect-free castings.
Wet Compression Strength (Wet Compression Test)
Wet compression strength tests assess the strength of molding sand in its wet state, providing information about its stability during casting.
Wet Shear Strength (Wet Shear Test)
Wet shear strength tests measure the ability of molding sand to resist shear forces when wet, ensuring the integrity of the mold during casting.
Physical Examination (Physical Tests)
Weight control ensures that the final product meets specified weight requirements, crucial for quality and performance.
Geometry Control (Geometrical Control)
Geometrical control involves verifying the dimensions and shape of the product, ensuring it meets design specifications.
Assembly control assesses the fit and alignment of components, guaranteeing proper functioning and structural integrity.
Functionality Control (Usable Control)
Functionality control evaluates the usability and performance of the final product, ensuring it meets intended use requirements.
