Sym-Ply T20 Clamp Victaulic Co., Easton, Pennsylvania


Material: Ductile iron and austempered ductile iron.


Process: Sand. Weight: 3.5 lbs. Dimensions: 6.5 x 5 x 1.5 in.


• In this three-component clamp, each piece is designed individually to ensure all three work in unison to function properly.


• Choosing austempered ductile iron provided increased strength and durability to the three- piece component.


• The clamp is part of the Symons by Dayton Superior Sym-Ply Wall Forming System gang wall forming system that assists contractors in doing their jobs faster, easier and more safely and cost-effective.


Main Housing & Bulkheads Denison Industries, Denison, Texas


Material: A356. Process: Dry sand. Weight: 165/59/144 lbs. Dimensions: 28 x 23 x 35 in. Diameter: 23 x 6 in./32 x 6 in. Converted From: Assembly of machined and fabricated components.


• A significant cost savings, more than 50%, was realized in the main housing by taking 23 welded, fabricated components and converting them to a one- piece casting.


• The conversion also removed the necessity of a separate component for both the front and rear bulkheads, both of which were previously machined from billet and mated to the separate component during assembly.


• The three components are used for industrial-sized variable transmissions. 28 | MODERN CASTING June 2013
