METALCASTING SUPPLIES Open Framework Software for Inspection


FEI Visualization Sciences Group has been developing a unique software solu- tion for inspection of materials based on FEI’s Avizo application integrating 3-D visualization, image processing and analy- sis. Te Avizo Inspect software applica- tion will streamline industrial inspection and materials design, off-line, near-line and in-line. It is capable of measuring dimensional metrology, an extensive set of inspection workflows, fiber characteriza- tion of parts and materials, and reverse engineering workflows for additive manu-


facturing. Avizo Inspect has been designed as an open framework, where “reci- pes” can be created, customized or tuned to be able to achieve the most accurate measurements. FEI also provides dedicated expertise and professional services for collaborative development of advanced customized environments. Processes can be


fully automated by reapplying recipes to a set of parts or materials. Visit www.fei.com for more information.


Laminates for Induction Furnaces


Von Roll USA Inc., Cleveland, has released its lines of mica materials and high/ low pressure laminates. Te mica-based Miglasil product line includes standard mica slip plane products, low thermal conductivity slip plane and mica warning screen. Additionally, the laminates are utilized in the power packs for all types of melting furnaces and coreless and cru- cible induction furnaces. Tese products provide quick turn- around time for furnaces adapted for mechanical push-out systems as well as for those metalcasting facilities utilizing


air hammers for lining removal. Visit www.vonroll.com for more information.


Handheld Electronic Housing for Harsh Environments


Te new 1553W IP65 sealed version of the 1553 handheld enclosure family from Hammond Manu- facturing, Guelph, Ontario, Canada, is intended for housing electronics that will be used in environ- ments where dust and water are likely to be present. It features an ergonometric curved shape and is initially available in three sizes: 4.62 x 3.11 x 0.98 in. (117 x 79 x 25mm), 4.62 x 3.11 x 1.26 in. (117 x 79 x 32mm) and


5.80 x 3.54 x 0.98 in. (147 x 90 x 25mm). All sizes are molded in UL94-V0 flame retardant ABS in RAL 7035 light grey or RAL 9011 black, both over-molded with RAL 7012 grey soft side grips. To reduce time to market and modification costs, all 1553W enclosures are available factory modified with


machining and silk screening to user specification. Visit www.hammfg.com for more information.

Web Browser-Based User Interface for Metalcasters


B&L Information Systems, Bridg- man, Mich., has launched Odyssey 4.7 MR1 for general availability. For this software update, B&L built additional time into the Odyssey release cycle to allow B&L’s R&D department to coordinate the beta release of the new browser-based web user interface with the Windows user interface release cycle for Odyssey. Te web user inter- face version of the Shop Floor Manag- er is available immediately for all users, while the full version of the web user interface for all Odyssey modules is available as a limited release beta. Tis zero-client ERP technology eliminates the need for metalcasters to use spe- cialty devices and third-party software interfaces. Te Shop Floor Manager may be used with any browser-based device, including laptops and tablets. Supported browsers include Internet


Explorer, FireFox and Chrome. Visit www.blinfo.com for more information.
