Determination of heat treatment parameters for an AlMgSi casting alloy
Solution annealing and ageing parameters were optimized on the basis of investigations and material tests in order to produce an AlMgSi alloy with greater ductility and strength
New plug control for casting furnaces
The production of high-quality castings using automated forming plants places major demands on the dosed filling of sand molds.
Benchmark in energy and raw material efficiency
Georg Fischer Mettmann has been operating another highly automated production line since August 2012, considerably raising the bar for the resource- and energy-efficient production of light components made of iron and S...
