Exhibitors from all parts of the supply chain presented their products to attendees of CastExpo in Minneapolis.


A MODERN CASTING STAFF REPORT


or four days in Minne- apolis, exhibitors displayed their new technological


developments to people who stopped by their booths. From the beginning of the casting process to the shakeout, all links of the supply chain were included, giving companies the opportunity to check out potential new investments to help improve their business.


MELTING AND POURING EQUIPMENT

New York, displayed a wide line of products for nonferrous metal process- ing, including degassers, immersion heater tubes, nozzles, down and pour spouts, bricks and lining, launders


and tundishes, stopper rods, and its DuraLadle Auto Ladle produced from “oxytron” silicon carbide material which is non-wetting to aluminum and requires no coating.


Electric Heating Elements for Diecasting


Custom Electric Manufactur-


ing Co., Wixom, Michigan, showed attendees its line of heating elements for diecasting equipment, incuding coil elements, ceramic fiber elements, tubular elements, and its Easy-Fix lids with individual element modules that eliminate the need to shut-down equipment to replace elements.


Cupola Technology Five years ago, Air Products, Allen-


town, Pennsylvania, renewed efforts on


a cupola technology to address rising costs, declining scrap quality and lim- ited availability of foundry coke, and the company shared the result of this effort—Air Products Cupola Oxy-Fuel System (APCOS)—at CastExpo. Now in its second generation, APCOS2 uses solid fuel to reduce charge coke usage and increase the energy delivered to the melt zone by reducing the water vapor and hydrogen created in the combustion process.
