Potential of new process for electrically resistance-based hardening of inorganic sand cores with new ACS-Technology

Increasingly stricter environmental requirements have led to the development and progressive establishment of inorganic binder systems which, compared to organic binder systems, harden thermally and thus require higher cycle times due to classic processes. This is where the ACS process comes in and aims to further develop the manufacturing process of inorganically bound cores, which can be implemented on all existing core shooters.
The process uses the electrical conductivity on which all inorganic binders are based to harden the cores. ….

New patented process to speed up the hardening of inorganic sand cores.

The ACS Project is focussing especially on the heat generation directly inside the sand cores by application of electrical currents. The benefits are not onlz faster sand core hardening but also better energy efficiency and reduced maintenance effort as external heat generation outside the core box could be eleminated.

Sand core hardening: Digital quality with new ACS-Technology

The sand core quality is of decisive importance for the casting quality. The ACS solution generates the heat directly in the cores and thus hardens them completely.

Electrical hardening of inorganic sand cores using Advanced Core Solutions (ACS) technology (GER)

Inorganic binder processes are based on the hardening of sand cores by means of dehydration. Dehydrogenation of the sand core is made possible by heat input. Established processes are based on heating the core boxes and rinsing with hot compressed air in order to transfer sufficient heat energy to the sand core in the shortest possible time. With the newly developed, already patented ACS technology, the inorganic sand binder mixture is additionally heated directly by means of a current flow. This enables …

Faster and more efficient production of lost cores for high volume production (GER)

Heavy-duty and complex castings for modern automotive engineering are unthinkable without the use of equally high-quality sand cores. The production of lost cores and moulds is therefore one of the cornerstones for high-quality castings. Even though additive manufacturing is gaining ground in the field of core production, the majority of all cores are (and will continue to be in the foreseeable future) produced with core shooters that have so far used the cold box or hot box process. While the Cold Box process uses the shot cores, …

Development of a new process for electrical hardening of inorganic sand cores and moulds (GER)

Inorganics are becoming increasingly important for sand core production. The development of a new process for the hardening of inorganic sand cores by means of electricity aims at a faster and more cost-effective production of inorganic sand cores. The other advantages such as low energy consumption with homogeneous curing are promising.
