Troubleshooting of Casting Defects

Date : 23 to 24 July, 2019

@ 12/5, D1 Block, MIDC Chinchwad, Pune


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.
Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organizing a 2 day programme on “Trouble shooting of Casting defects”
