The largest automatic closing handler for large flasks was on display at the IMF booth. HA International, Westmont, Ill.


SpheriChrome • HA International is the exclusive North American distributor of SpheriChrome, the only chromite foundry sand mined and processed in the U.S.


• The sand is ideal for large ferrous applications and has a round shape and fine grain size. Advantages include a high bonded sand strength and good cast finish for reduced cleaning costs.


QUALITY INSPECTION


Bruker Elemental, Kalkar, Germany Spectrometer • The Q2 ION spark spectrometer is small and ultra- compact, weighing less than 44 lbs. (20 kg). It is ideal for small and mid-size metalcasting facilities.


• The multi-matrix system is used for incoming material inspection and quality assurance of metal alloys, includ- ing ferrous, aluminum and copper-based materials.


What They Said


“I saw a continued advancement of the more environmen- tally friendly binder systems, including the organics. Te companies displaying and discussing them included HA, ASK, S&B Industrial Minerals. Equipment companies with core machines geared toward these processes included Laempe, Loramendi, etc.” —Tom Prucha, American Foundry Society


Inspectomation, Mannheim, Germany


CoreVision • The visual inspection technology was designed to take into account the color variations in sand and uses shadow modulation to look for defects in sand cores, core pack- ages, sand molds and filters.


• CoreVision can be integrated into automatic sand mold- ing machines. The software concentrates on user-defined regions of interest that are relevant to product quality.


NovaCast Systems, Ronneby, Sweden


Adaptive Termal Analysis System (ATAS) • ATAS is a computer-based thermal analysis system for metallurgical process control of cast iron alloys. Com- puters are connected to an A/D converter and a stand for test cups.


• The system tests for possible problems during the melt- ing and treatment processes.


Spectro, Kleve, Germany


Spectrolab • The latest version of the spectrometer analyzes metal using photomultiplier detectors relative to single spark evaluation and time-resolved spectroscopy.


• The new analyzer can evaluate aluminum, magnesium and titanium alloys with a single hardware configuration.


Yxlon, Hamburg, Germany


PXV5000 • The advanced digital imaging version 3.8 for auto- matic inspection of cast parts has been simplified with a tree structure view and enhanced with automatic creation of an inspection item catalog, casting-flaw
