NAME

Pilot plant for advanced ferrous and superalloys castings including nano-enabled materials

DESCRIPTION

Semi-industrial pilot plant for the design, prototyping, characterization and validation of new materials, components and processes of ferrous casting and superalloys (including nanoreinforced castings).
Induction melting and casting furnaces for metallic materials with a capacity of 0.5 and 1 tn of molten iron for the manufacturing of prototypes and small industrial series in ferrous alloys. Small induction melting and casting furnaces (vacuum and inert atmosphere) with a capacity of 10 kg for prototyping. A complete sand molding line for dies up to 1.5 x 1.5 m2.. Different plasma tourches for melting and for the recovery of metals. A complete sand laboratory for sand characterization. Chemical control of obtained alloys by spectrometry.

MOST OUTSTANDING EQUIPMENT AND COMPONENTS

Auxiliary elements +

Auxiliary elements such as : immersion thermocouples for the temperature control and registers, nodulizing equipment and sample taker for the composition control, sand test molds

Induction melting and casting furnace in vacuum or inert atmosphere +

Vacuum induction melting and casting furnace for metallic materials. Inert atmosphere. Capacity of melting up to 1,2 litres of material (10 kg of Steel equivalent). Possibility of production high-purity metals within an oxygen-free atmosphere. Removal of undesired trace elements and dissolved gases. Possibility of melting special alloys (superalloys, special steels,etc.) Addition of alloying elements and/or reinforcing particulates within breaking the vacuum. Precise control of temperatura with an immersion thermocouple.
