Productivity Improvement in Castings Shifting to Shell Mould Process
The creation and application of technology to monitor and control the production and delivery of products and service in casting foundries has gained importance and are necessary to sustain in competitive market conditions. In this work various parameters of importance are improved by employing shell mould process for the production of the castings which were previously produced by green sand mould process. Parameters considered in this work are to achieve overall productivity of castings. In this regard delivery of castings, reducing rate of rejection, improving the yield, methods to improve quality etc, plays an important role. Accordingly work to achieve all these, without forgetting cost and economical considerations to get greater profit is done. Also manual work is reduced by employing the machineries, which brings many changes in foundry and hence towards automation.
