Quality is very important to any industry for proper business and reputation. We all know that the quality is achieved by production and not by inspection, but we need to inspect to know the produced quality. We cannot depend on Standard Room to assess the quality of a parameter of a part, as it takes long time and the machine has to wait till the results come. Also many parts would be waiting in the queue. Machine has to be idle which means loss of money. We need to inspect in the shop immediately after the first part is produced. We cannot always use instruments for all parameters of checking, as the instruments are not tailor made for the required parameters. Hence there is a need for SP

Trouble shooting of Casting defects

10 to 11 January, 2020,
Metal casting is one of the oldest manufacturing process, which basically involves pouring molten metal into a mould cavity, where upon solidification it takes the shape of the cavity. Beauty of this process is, any complicated shape in any metal can be casted. Metal casting is a complicated process with many process variables. There are numerous opportunities for things to go wrong in a casting operation, resulting in quality defects in the product. A casting defect is an undesired irregularity in a metal casting process. Some defects can be tolerated while others can be repaired, otherwise they must be eliminated. It is a great challenge to work on casting defects and eliminate them.
