Case Study- Reduce casting costs and maintain the required quality

fusioni alluminio settore energiaThis case study describes how Alunetwork has succeeded in creating aluminum castings destined for the energy sector by reducing costs compared to its competitors low-cost countries and in compliance with the quality requirements Europeans and Canadians.

Alunetwork partners have made the most of the co-design with the customer, the casting simulation and rapid prototyping for aluminum castings able to comply with the strictest regulations in the energy sector.

Simulation of aluminium gravity casting

simulazione-colata-alluminioThe casting simulation is a tool used in foundries to monitor the filling process of the aluminum into the mold, so check filling and solidification of castings and identify any critical areas.
The simulation of the aluminum casting is achieved thanks to a software that performs a mathematical simulation of what happens during the process of filling and solidification within the mold steel, so as to check for any issues before moving to the machining of the mold.

The benefits of using of the casting simulation are

  • Reduce time and cost of production
  • Compliance with quality standards required
  • Reduction of non-compliance
  • Optimization of feed channels
  • Evidence of pockets of stagnation and the areas exposed to the danger of entrapped air.
  • Evidence of any "porosity"

Each simulation provides as output lots of useful information to technicians

  • Pouring time
  • Metal temperatures
  • surface defects
  • Distribution oxides
  • Air entrapments
  • Solidification rate
  • Heat transfer coefficients
  • Mold temperature
  • Stress and strain for heat treatment of both the solidified metal that the mold

Aluminium Prototype with disposable mold for the automotive sector

From the 3D project of the customer is realized a sand mold which is cast the aluminum alloy desired.

TIME: This technique ensures fast implementation ranging from 7 to 14 days, depending on the complexity of the project
MATERIAL: It uses the same aluminum alloy melt in series
TREATMENT: You can also do mechanical tooling on the prototype as well as leak testing and other pre-processing, verifying the quality of the project.

Benefits for the research and development department:

  • Quickly evaluate metal part design
  • Saving time and money
  • Produce metal prototypes in almost any metal material
  • Allow testing of the part in the actual production materials
  • Produce metal parts without expensive tooling
  • Reduce sampling time
  • Reduce lead time

The cycle of the metal rapid prototyping:

  1. Analysis of 3D mathematical model (feasibility study, construction drafts casting systems and simulation) 
  2. Modeling of prestampo with parametric 3D CAD 
  3. Printing sampleswith 3D printing machine (high-speed complex shapes are obtained, even in the undercut, made in sand croning that can be employed in the foundry) 
  4. Casting, deburring and sandblasting 
  5. Any subsequent machining

Realisation of functional mechanical prototypes with rapid prototyping


Is the desire of every engineering department have the champion of its 3D design in a short time to test requirements prototipazione-rapidaAll this is possible thanks to rapid prototyping with fusion of metal (aluminum, iron, steel, bronze)

With a lead time of 4-5 days we transform the 3D design in a sample equal in all respects to that of series

The cycle of prototyping metal:

1) Analysis of 3D mathematical model (feasibility study, construction drafts casting systems and simulation)

2) Modeling of prestampo with parametric 3D CAD

3) Printing premodelli and any anime with 3D printing machine (high-speed complex shapes are obtained, even in the undercut, made in sand Croning that can be employed in the foundry)

4) casting, deburring and sandblasting

Comes the technology Multi-tasking in Alunetwork

multitaskingThe multi-tasking machines are the innovation of the manufacturing industry of the 21st century. From raw material to finished product in one set machine: DONE-IN-ONE.

It's suitable to perform special pieces (eg., Crankshaft and camshaft) requiring turning operations - milling - drilling both front - lateral tilt.

Degassing of aluminum cast


The cast alloys of aluminum contained in the ovens easily saturate gas; gas absorbed by most alloys is hydrogen.
Purpose of degassing is to eliminate the gases contained in the molten mass, in order to ensure the conformity of the chemical composition of the individual alloys used.
The degassing allows to obtain a homogenization of the chemical elements of the alloy and a better result in terms of the specific weight of the alloys, this takes away the classic problems of porosity, in slang called pinholes.
Following treatment are performed laboratory testing with spectrometer, scales for measuring the specific gravity / density after subjecting the specimen melted in vacuum - 0.8 bar.
