Core Removal System Jenfab, Berlin, Connecticut, shared

its new nondestructive core removal system, the VCC-FSR Series which performs complete removal of sand and core debris from internal sec- tions and passages of castings. It is a nondestructive process that eliminates the possibility of casting damage. It provides a clean atmosphere for core removal without the noise of core knockout machines. Operators are not in close proximity to smoke, fumes, sand or airborne particulates typical in pneumatic hammer core removal processes.

Core Machine Roberts Sinto Corp., Lansing,

Michigan, exhibited its CDRX vertical parting shell core machine. It achieves higher density by using aeration tech- nology. It is easy to maintain, compact and energy efficient.

Shell Sand Resin Fairmount Santrol, Benton Harbor,

Michigan, highlighted its Technisand Phenolic Novalic Resin for shell sand coating. Te resin is ideal for produc- tion of ferrous and nonferrous alloys and provides high core and mold strength during pouring as well as excellent decomposition profiles.

Nobake Resin Fairmount Santrol’s new nobake resin,

Epsilon-SD, is a three part phenolic ure- thane nobake (PUNB) resin system that significantly reduces VOCs and HAPs compared to conventional PUNB systems with higher strengths. It requires no new investment in equipment or changes in production practices and can be used with new or reclaimed sand.

Molding System Palmer Manufacturing & Supply

Inc., Springfield, Ohio, displayed a Universal Molding Machine (UMM) Station built for Dakota Foundry, Webster, South Dakota, at CastExpo. Palmer designed UMMs for high production nobake molding at low capital costs, making them attractive to jobbing foundries. Available in a two-station or six-station version, the Palmer UMM produces molds without a rollover and can accept both green sand and nobake tooling.

Nobake Binder ASK Chemicals, Dublin, Ohio,

showed a swing arm knuckle that Blackhawk de Mexico produced using the Pep Set nobake binder system. Te Pep Set system is known for its quality and controllable curing reactions. Te Quantum series can be used to achieve lower smoke emissions and odor during pouring, cooling, shakeout and mixing.
